Longing for the Beach

Instead of allowing myself to feel blue because I had to postpone my beach/wedding planning vacation for a couple of weeks, I've been browsing old photographs to keep me in that beach-y state of mind.

I love them. And I want to go to the beach now too. So badly. Especially because it is about 1000 miles away from me. Sad!

Gorgeous! That fourth photo is so stunning and nostalgic. Where can a person get a hold of vintage vogue magazines? I'm guessing they're all pricey collectors items nowadays, but I'd love to get my hands on some.

So I just found your blog and I love it! I'm definately bookmarking :)

Love love LOVE these pics... they make me INSANELY happy that I'm going to be in Charleston, SC in a few weeks! Now all I need to do is find a bathing suit that covers as much as those...
