Reminiscing of a Summer Holiday...





I am dreaming of silky soft sand beneath my toes.. I am dreaming of the soothing rumble of the waves. I am dreaming of sun-kissed skin, bikini tan lines and the smell of coconut oil. I am dreaming of lobster lunches, Jack Johnson oozing from the music box.. I am dreaming of falling asleep on the shore with a book in hand. I am dreaming of a salt-encrusted happiness one will only find on the beach.


This is my outfit of the day for work... I am craving a holiday. It has been far too long since I have slung a rucksack across my back and traveled to a place unknown. I am getting itchy feet again - something only experiencing a new town and a new culture will cure.

It won't be long now... but in the meantime, I will work and save as much as I can, while enjoying a little surf after the clock strikes 5pm every evening. It is my little slice of life. Surfing and the ocean makes me feel most alive.

I am counting down the hours.... only three more to go.

  4. Ohhh I am with you! I haven't been on a real trip EVER! Isn't that sad? We are going to Nova Scotia to visit my sister and her family in October. That will be nice. But it still won't be a 'warm' holiday. Rob and I seriously still have to get away together. We never have, and it would be so amazing.
    I was going to ask if your hair was blonde now.. but I see that is an older picture. I must say- that I love your hair the way it is now, nice and dark!
