happy place

This little corner of anna maria is where my family used to rent in the summer.
Being just a few minutes away from this spot makes me so {so} happy.
i get all and every kind of nostalgic.  i used to play in this sand, i used to daydream here and now i'm here with my
 handsome huz.
and that coupled with the beauty of the ocean, the powdery white sand, the man strumming the ukulele... 
my throat closes, i get choked up.  it is what always happens.
Last night JB and I went on a date to watch the sunset and grab a bite on the Pier.
and i grabbed my camera instead of leaving it behind.  trying to break that bad recently formed habit.
wish you were here.

  7. I absolutely LOVE Anna Maria! I've been to that pier many times, as well as the Rod'n'Reel pier (yummy food!). I spent Summers going to Long Boat Key, and Anna Maria growing up, and to this day, it remains one of my favorite places in the world! The Anna Maria cafe on the beach also has the best tuna salad ever haha!!! such a sweet and beautiful place :)

  9. gorgeous pictures! so glad you are breaking this bad habit that i DO NOT approve of (;

    oh and rainbows... i'm getting myself a pair and soon (i live in CA, so the 80 degree temps of lately seem to warrant a new flip-flop purchase)

    the ocean gets me every time.. i could sit on the beach for HOURS, doing nothing but staring off into the horizon.. (:

  27. Gorgeous pics! :)
    SO glad you remembered to grab your camera. my bad habit is that I grab my camera too much - I've been trying to enjoy more the moments than taking millions of pics of it.

    xoxo, Ana
