Summer Dreams

I wore a dress today, one I haven't used since last summer. As I pulled it out of the closet, I noticed something rattling in the pocket. Seashells? I sat down on my bed, pressed the dress to my face. Did it not smell a little like the beach? Salt water? Sunscreen?

I love living in the Ocean State. Outside the snow is melting, but in just a few months I will once again have sand all over the floors, in the car, in the bathtub, in my hair. I will make sure to get out more often this year. Afternoon trips to the nearby beaches, day trips to Newport and Narragansett. There are so many places I haven't seen yet...

I stop daydreaming and put on my dress. Stick my hand in the pocket and pull out a small handful of pistachio shells. I must have put them in my pocket while cleaning or something.

This is what happens to me in February.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Well, I signed up on Instagram and stopped blogging. Oops. I will back soon, but for now, I added a feed of my latest photos to the sidebar below. I wasn't sure I'd be so into it, but it is quite addicting; the kids are already making fun of me. ;)
