By the sea
These fabulous images are from an article titled Kaleidoscope by the sea in the Traditional Home magazine. Isn' that a yummy title? Well, I think so :) I'm perpetually drawn to large bodies of water. I would say that I'm drawn to the sea, because it sounds more romantic, but the truth is that I've never lived even remotely close to the sea. I have lived close to at least three Great Lakes and other sizable bodies of water. I'm sure I've talked about it before, but there's something very soothing and reassuring about these lakes. They are ever comforting in their changefulness and beauty. I lived on the shores of Lake Superior two years ago, in a lovely apartment a mere mile from a path that led to a small, often deserted, patch of shoreline. I would make my way there every morning during the summer months just to sit on a huge bolder and listen to the water. I'm determined, quite determined, to find a place close to water when we start looking for a more permanent residency (as in a house). Maybe we'll even find a spot on the sea. Happy thought!
Oh, and on a side note, as I haven't mentioned my Fourth yet, our weekend down in Kansas City was... very full. Full of family (lots of family), full of moving about and fun. And full of allergies. Whoa Nelly! did I have a bad case of allergies, unlike anything I've ever experienced. I think I spent most of the weekend under a haze of sinus pressure or drugged up :) So, next weekend, when we go back to Kansas City for a wedding, I'm bringing stronger stuff!
