it was exactly what i needed. a slow and sandy day with my little tribe, our housemate and her boyfriend.
to say that eden liked the beach would be the understatement of the year. she did not want to be held, she wanted to run into the water, get knocked over, get up on her own, and then do it again. it was the best possible way a baby of mine could respond to the force of nature that has always left me in the most awe of God's consistency and power...the waves.
so i did my best to capture the way i felt watching her.
i have never loved swim suits, i just feel so exposed, but i have to say, i am in love with this one by Reyswimwear. its motto is to make throwback fashion suits, inspired by audrey, that are modest and stylish. its incredibly comfortable and it makes me want to wear my suit all summer long.
a little dragonfly decided my flashy new salt water sandal was a great resting place. he hung out for about 10 minutes
oh sweet salty sea air
oh magical day off
