sand between my toes.


a beautiful sun soaked day on the coast was in order for us on wednesday. having lived on the coast for several years (before moving to the big brissie smoke) it was on the agenda for us to revisit a few of our favourite places whilst mum and dad were in town. the sun put on a real show and the clouds were just incredible. being with my most loved cloud watcher, she was in her element all day. a quick stop at one of my old time favourite opshops (and a few finds i'll share later) and then it was onto some lunch at our old beach hotspot aka the best lime milkshake maker on the coast. i've never been much of a beach babe but wandering the expansive sands and snapping pics along the way, was just incredible...heaven infact. the minty/turquoise colours had me in awe and soaking my milky british skin in some sunshine with some of my favourite people was just what the doctor ordered. the weather has been a bit unpredictable this week, so lots of yummy dinners after work and chats over mugs of tea and tim tams has provided us with the perfect amount of family time. dinner at mine is on the agenda tonight before they fly out early tomorrow morning. the chance of seeing them in london town in june now has me even more excited about europe. the family ties have loosened once again as we let them head back to their sf home (and our gorgeous pup) but i will continue to go about my days with the memories we've made until we're reunited once again. we all know that absence only makes the heart grow fonder.




beach love.


the colours!
