hatteras island


we're back from our week with the waves and the sand. i'm still digging bits of sand out of phoebe's ears...it's such a comfort. a small and funny reminder of where we've been. we spent all of our time lazing about...holed up with matt's beautiful family in a beach house...bobbing around in the ocean and watching bee scuttle around the beach like a tiny bird. i gathered my weight in seashells and painted a little and fell asleep every night to the sounds and rhythms of the water. not too shabby! not one bit! a girl could get used to such a way of living...

next week my max is off to 3rd grade and life picks back up where we left it. hatteras was the perfect way to send off our summer...

  15. Now THIS is what summer is supposed to look like. I want to go to the outer banks so very much, I think next summer is the summer it needs to finally happen. Although I keep going back and forth between Outer Banks and Maine...
