the beach house






it has been along time since i stood here, since we lived here full time. i am not sure what to make of the memories. it was nice seeing our old neighbor just were we left him, working on his antique yellow car and his shiny silver motorcycle. It was nice seeing that the houses i cared for the most were untouched by misguided esthetics and mega mansions. I was hoping that the grapes along the fence were starting to bare fruit. I remember my mornings here, i would wake up and take in the most wonderful smell of the grapes on the vines, they were the biggest blue grapes i have ever seen and what made it even more special i was the only one that harvested them. one time i made a pie, yes but that is whole other story!

there's something magical about these images - i'm in Los Angeles where it rarely rains, so i'm nostalgic about those dark gray afternoons just before a big storm is about to hit. your blog makes me excited for Autumn to come!

I want to go back. I want a beach house just like this one.

nadia, your imagery is perfection. you always manage to take us right into your world, and this time, your memories. I feel like I have been to this special place with you, peeking through the windows. oh how i'd love to take a wander with you one day, i imagine we would be consumed with finding little treasures along the whole trip that we'd forget where we were going or where we started. Have a fabulous Sunday. px
