Summer at the Shore*

Swimming in the emerald sea like a mermaid...

Playing in the crystal white sand like a child...

Appreciating and enjoying it all like a grown up.

Happy Summer!

These "vintage" images above are some of my favorites from my childhood...the mermaid was a postcard I received from a cousin in the early seventies which I had saved; I had Jessie Wilcox Smith's charming illustration in a petite frame in my room as a little girl; and the contemplative blue eyed girl with the summer hat which I also had framed in my room as a young adult always reminded me of myself on the beaches of California {even though I have green eyes}.  That's my summer story...for now.
