It has been too long since my last post. My excuse is that I spent the last week doing all things wonderful, none of which included my computer. However, what it did include was sharing a gorgeous beachside house with 20 friends, lounging in front of the ocean with great reads, enforcing mid-afternoon daiquiri breaks, and taking an end of the week road trip to visit some of my favorite family (and friends) in Charlotte, NC. As most vacations do, this past week allowed me to escape from everyday life and come back to my standard routine with a fresh outlook. While at the beach I came up with a lot of new ideas and inspirations for ES, one of which was sitting right in front of me. All week long, I could NOT get enough of these colorful beach chairs that came with our house. They were simple plastic chairs, but something about their colors against the backdrop of the sunny blue skies made me smile every time I saw them scattered on the beach. My favorite picture was taken one morning when unplanned, everyone's beach chair was placed in a perfectly straight row. At one lucky point all of the chairs were vacant and I was able to snap a few shots of the empty chairs with our beautiful house in the background. Even looking at these chairs now makes me feel like I am back on vacation again. I am looking forward to sharing more inspirations and wonderful things with everyone this summer. I hope you enjoy!
