thank you to everyone who said that sharing more of my photos from our winter in florida was okay. what a warm and fuzzy feeling.
on our last day in seaside, we took a long and thoughtful walk through the woods and town soaking in everything around us, knowing it would be a year before we'd do it all again. the photo above, while i don't condone carving your initials or anything else into someone else's property, made me smile. i found it on a small public portico at the end of a pier over a lake and what i want to believe is that while all of "his"friends were busy carving their initials into the wood, a child who wanted nothing more than to fit in and who was raised to know better, decided that carving a cross probably wouldn't get him into trouble.
in case you're wondering, yes…vsco editing is still what i'm doing with most of my photos because holy cow, i love the feeling they provoke in me. i'm a vintage girl through and through, who loves the lines of mid century modern anything mixed in and somehow, that's what vsco feels like to me.
there was a photo shoot going on when we were walking through town and i couldn't get over the gorgeousness of these three children. i took a few photos from the front, but obviously without permission i wouldn't share those here and to be honest with you, this photo that i quickly shot from behind, was the best one of the bunch. look at the handholding between the two littlest ones. wow…is that adorable or what??
on our very last night, we ran down to the beach for one last sunset. the temperature dropped dramatically and way too quickly, so there i sat in my hubby's lap trying to stay warm. i still had my flip flops on, so my toes were freezing and even with my hood up over my head, it was cold...but the sunset was blindingly brilliant.
to be safe, i didn't look through the view finder on my camera, as i'm always worried about burning my cornea or some other horrific "eye to the sun magnified by a camera lens related" issue when the sun is that bright and just clicked away.
i guess if i compared all of my sunset photos to each other, they'd look similar to each other, but this one i'll remember the most. the cold wind whipping against me, my hubby's warm arms around me and a sky that said, "this is for you, so you don't ever forget me."
