Since my sewing machine is in for service this week, I thought I would share some photos today from a vacation this summer instead… Some crafting projects next post I promise! :)
What is the saying? Something like the shoemaker’s kids are the last to have shoes or something… Well, the photographer’s family is always the last to have photos right ;)
I went on a bit of a holiday/vacation this summer to visit family & be in warmer temps. It was the end of July, when the rain just felt like it was never going to stop & we had not had a nice warm day yet in Seattle. (To all the people who I overheard in the grocery store/target/doctor’s office saying we had such a warm summer this year – I have proof we didn’t get summer until August! And summer until August does not count as being a warm/nice summer in my book! My husband commented at the time that it was good I was going to get a visit in with family & get some warmer temps, because he knew how much I needed some warm weather!) Anyways ;) It was lovely getting to see family & warm up a bit. I took lots of photos of course, but you wouldn’t know that until recently since of course my own personal photos & family photos are always the last to get processed around here :)
Just thought I would share a few of my favorites from that long weekend… (I apologize for how many there are, but I loved all of these so much :)
You can’t have a vacation without the beach :) And sunsets along the beach are the most beautiful!
I love how just a minute or two can totally change the light & colors of a sunset!
My sister’s sweet rescue kitty… He showed up on their doorstep one day & never left :)
More time enjoying the beach & water…
Eating brunch at one of my favorite restaurants ever! Where they have goats on the grass roof!
I am fairly certain I took this next photo from the moving car (I wasn’t driving)… I just couldn’t resist snapping a photo of a barn quilt though!
My mother’s (new to her) sewing machine… I think it even works! And it looks darling in her home…
I asked my dad to pull the car over when I saw these cows standing in the field next to the road… For a girl who grew up around farm land, you wouldn’t think I would get so excited to take photos of cows… But for some reason I sort of miss seeing them on the sides of the roads… And these cows were so social & friendly! The kids in our family all got to pet them and we had a blast while I took some portraits of the cows :)
I love the Pacific Northwest with its mountains & trees, but there is something just as beautiful about a sunset over fields & prairie… Contemplating printing this one for our house even… I love the feel of it!
And yes it is true, life at the beach is pretty great…
