in the aeroplane over the sea.





















Solana Beach 2008 | Blake Family
We spent five days in California for our annual beach stay - relaxing, reading, shopping, sleeping in, and hanging out with our awesome extended family. I'm not really much of a beach girl; after a couple hours of sand & waves, I'd usually rather be somewhere else. But it was a welcomed change of pace, and I've got a tan & a wicked sunburn on my shoulders to prove it.

Ahh. Back to everyday life.


Let us lay in the sun
And count every beautiful thing we can see
Love to be
In the arms of all I'm keeping here with me
...
Can't believe how strange it is to be anything at all

  1. Finally! I've been patiently awaiting a post about your trip. I almost had to call to make sure you were planning on one. I missed you. :) Cute pictures, but far too few of FACES. I love your suits. See you Sunday?
