see the world

There's a drawer in my grandmother's house full of old photos.  I spent a lot of time this winter break looking at them.  Aren't these beach photos beautiful?  My grandmother took them in Cape Cod, at Nauset Beach, in 1987.

When I'm feeling down or confused, my first instinct is to be near a body of water.  There's something so calming about listening to waves and feeling the little kisses of sea-spray on my cheeks.  It clears my mind and puts things in perspective.  The weather is moody today and so am I... I'm going to put on my rain boots and head down to the park by the river to clear my head.

'See the World,' by Gomez, is one of my favorite songs.  The lyrics are simple and honest and they make sense to me.

Ok.  Time to go for a walk.
The world is puddle-wonderful.


  1. Those photographs are absolutely beautiful. I love the crashing wave, and the one with the boats (the colours are so pretty!)

    1. I'm so glad you like them! They were definitely some of my favorites that I came across. And how weird and exciting is it to see actual vintage photographs instead of instagrams with vintage filters?

      Thanks so much for the comment!
