Longing for the Seashore

  Only in my mind...

I can smell the saltiness of the air, hear the sea gulls cawing, feel the wind blowing through my hair, sand against my feet, beating of the waves, chilliness as I step indoors from the beach.

Oh my. I'm giving myself happy butterflies inside. Since I was seven years old, my whole family and I vacation at the beautiful Folly Beach which is connected to Charleston. I'm telling you, nothing gets much closer to paradise than that little island.
I look forward to taking evening walks on the beach and pier, pretending I'm a mermaid in the ocean with my cousin, making sand castles, visiting downtown Charleston, just waking up and knowing I'm there.

And very shortly -- I will be there.

Where is your happy place?


  1. Ahhh, I love this new design! It looks so lovely :)

    You have made me want to go to the beach even more than I already had... Which I didn't think was possible :)

  2. That sounds wonderful...


  3. i love this. the beach, the seashore, it's my second home.

  4. oh man. i love the beach. i've been a few times to the beach in california, but the water is always so cold and gray and dirty. last year, i did go to hawaii, and got my fair share of warm, crystal clear water. it was heaven on earth.

  5. My fav spot is Catalina Island! Staying on a boat in a cove, it's my vision of heaven! Sort of like staying at a beach, but instead when you leave your 'porch' you're swimming!!! *sigh* I'm longing for Catalina now...

  6. your space is looking really lovely! i think my heart is the shape of the beach. and i get spoiled living so close to folly - that's where we go! i'm excited you'll be reunited soon.

  7. ahhhh!! love this! One of my favourite places is definitely the beach. ;) I also like cozy nooks and exploring in woods on a sunny day and Spain and France and countries that fill you with a secret happiness - fernweh and wanderlust.
