I am back in full swing beach obsession mode, it happens ever year. We had the nicest weather here in Ohio last week. Full sunshine and low seventies! This, of course, meant I wanted to spend the evening at the beach. It feels so great to be back there sitting in the sand, wind in my hair, and the sun on my back. I collected my biggest haul of beach glass that I've ever found in one evening. I quickly filled up three film canisters with glass and had to put the rest in my camera bag. It was perfect. Evenings like this should happen more often.
Hope you have a lovely Thursday! I hear it's supposed to be near 80 degrees (Fahrenheit, which is around 27C) here today. That is so exciting. I can't wait to get outside!

PS. Isn't it so crazy to think that this is the same place from these two posts - 1 & 2 ?!

  9. gosh, I just adore these photos! and your hair!!! Holy cow, I love it more every time I see it. I was a fan of your green hair way back when. I love green hair. Mine's currently mostly Sonic Green right now.

    That little ship is adorable! Did you draw it?

    I am jealous of your warm weather. It keeps trying to get warm, but then we get rain and thunderstorm after rain and thunderstorm. I'm a fan of the thunderstorm days, but man. We've had flooding for a little over a week now in Grand Rapids, MI, and I am just over everything being so sopping wet! At least it is looking to be a good upcoming mushroom hunting season ;D

  10. I'm in awe of the amount of beach glass you found. I always just find maybe a piece here and there even on a good day. Also that sweater is perfect. I hate birds normally except when I go to the beach. Something about sandpipers and pelicans is so relaxing to watch

  20. I love this outfit so much. I bought some plain jeans to print on and I think I'm probably just going to try simple polka dots. Every time I see jeans like this, I like them so much.
