There is something about spending time in nature that gets you questioning everything about your normal city life. Whether it’s at the beach or in a quiet village surrounded by forest greenery, it doesn’t matter; you really come back a different person – rejuvenated, recentred. My trip this time was no different.
This weekend, M and I packed the kids off on a beach getaway. The gods must have been smiling down on us, it was a perfect couple of days. Bright beautiful days of blue skies and a dazzling cheerful sun. Just perfect.
Can you believe that day one passed without me snapping a single photo?? I would have liked to say that that’s pretty much unheard of, but alas! It happens often. Sometimes I get so lost in the moments that it’s impossible for me to break out and reach for the camera. At least they are recorded where they matter the most, embedded in the recesses of my brain and heart. Nevertheless, I’d have loved to share them.
Can you also believe that after packing a whole suitcase full of clothes – the blogger in me couldn’t resist – I ended up spending the entire time in this wild hot pink perfection of a dress?! That says a lot about how comfortable the fabric felt on the skin. I love dresses like this – simple, bright, summery numbers that make a statement on their own without the need for much accompaniment. This one is perfect; it has a character all of its own, elegant and yet dancing with the breeze, loose and caressing on the skin.
Happy Monday! Hope your weekend too has left you rejuvenated and super motivated to kick off this new week (and month) in style! Yippie!!! Hello August!
