what does a perfect day look like?

Sunday was perfection, such a tease of summer!

I know I gush a lot, but this weekend - especially our beach day for Mother's day - was downright lovely. Hot, 80 degrees, calm, sunny, high and light, whispery clouds. Coffee and healthyish  snacks for the beach (hi strawberries and cream!). A day spent with my mother, sister, and grandmother. We got treated to a little air show, some light shopping, and poking around the newly expanded post-Sandy beach.

It had been a stressful week before this. It seems at the moment my family is encountering little dilemmas lately - so this was a nice break from it all. I think it is even worse when you have to watch the people around you stress out, when it is out of your control! But as always it seems to all fall into place - which I am sure it all will. All in good time. In the meantime, I really feel like this summer can't come soon enough...all of that water glistening in the sun totally got me.

ciao! xo


  1. oh! the beach. it looks so lovely!

  2. This looks so so lovely. I could just lay in the warm sand all day! Well, on a towel, of course:)

  3. I need to be at the beach! So fun to see all these beautiful photos!

  4. You and I have the exact same idea of a perfect day, right down to the snacks! I can relate to the stress right now...I hope things get better with your family! In my own experience, fresh ocean air can do wonders. I am glad you got to have this day. Meanwhile, I am counting down the minutes until I am next to an ocean.
