It's Thursday...already. Am I the only one who thinks that the weeks are flying by faster than ever? I feel like just yesterday we were celebrating the dawn of the new decade and now we're half way through January.
What better way to start the new year than planning a baby moon? If you follow my blog or twitter you may have heard by now that I'm expecting my first little one in June. We are planning a getaway for pure relaxation before his or her arrival. One of my all-time favorite activities is planning trips. Many years ago my husband and I made a list of places we wanted to see...every year the list gets shorter as we visit the places we've always dreamed of going but with every place we check off, four more are added so the list gets longer and longer. We often find ourselves on one vacation daydreaming about the next place we want explore. It's not just that we're impatient (because we are...a little) but we truly do love to travel and visit places that are new to us.
Right now we're trying to decide and that's part of the fun. In the spirit of taking long trips away, I visited my archives to look for images of vacations past...I came upon literally hundreds of images from our two-week summer-laziness-fest in East Hampton last August. We're not really the sit back and do nothing on vacation types (at least not for that many days in a row!) so this time away was a new thing for us and it was fantastic. I still haven't printed images from that trip or our trip to Italy last March so my goal is to do that before we go where ever we will end up going next month. I like having a few prints to look back on...
So here are some images from Summer 2009...I think they come just in time to warm me up on this very, very cold winter day.
These were taken on one beautiful afternoon in particular. It was so sunny and bright and then some clouds rolled in but the rain never came with them. The beach cleared out because I suppose people were afraid to get caught in a storm...but not us. We stayed there and kept reading our books and eventually I got up to take advantage of the "magic light" and glimpses of the sun that was desperately trying to break through the clouds.
