cali summers

a quote by Kellie Elmore, Magic in the Backyard:

“I love how summer just wraps it’s arms around you like a warm blanky.”

although the weather doesn’t feel like the end of summer, kids starting school and labor day soon approaching, i know summer is coming to a close.

i’ve been fortunate enough this summer to spend many of my days at the beach with my partners in crime, tee (the boyfriend) and april (my best girlfriend).  whether it be a full day or just a couple of hours, our beach days have been filled with refreshing dips in the ocean, yummy lee’s sandwiches, while relaxing and basking in the sun.

just this past weekend, i was able to watch the sunset over the pacific while my toes were being washed over by the extremely warm ocean water.  i couldn’t help but feel… blessed!  cali summer blessed!

i mean, seriously, how ridiculously amazing is this sunset???

hermosa beach, ca

this song is a few years old, but i think it’s the theme song to my summer of 2012…

enjoy, and try to soak in as much summer as you can before we “fall” back!

    I am glad we could share this warm memory together.
    This day was definitely a day which when I think of can say that I was happy that moment.
