I'm summer, come, run along my beaches, loose your thoughts in my rays of sunshine, dive into my oceans ...

Dear friends, it's been a loooooong while since i last posted here - do you guess where i've been? It wasn't easy going beach life all the time, but somehow, summer took me on it's wings and carried me away. Making the long days seem short, giving me so much to do while at the same time making me .... not exactly lazy, but stretching my inner life out in various directions. These pix were taken during a trip to the Italian riviera, and i'm going to show you more of the colors of Italy here soon.
Hope you're having a splendid summer so far and send you a fresh ocean breeze!

  3. My beautiful blog friend, MARTINA! I have missed you so, but I did remember you saying you would be away for a while, and what a PLACE to be away to!

    Your magazine editing skills show in the wonderful layout of your photos...like looking at a magazine! I had a wonderful 10 days in the beginning of June at the beach too, and some of those pictures are shared on my current blog post. I am wishing and welcoming you back to Blogland my friend; when certain people stop posting, it's just not the same. I am glad you are back. I await the colors you have encountered! HUGS! Anita

  9. MARTINA! Hello there! Do you know how magical it is to see you back here in Blogland, and to see your comment on my page? Thank you kindly dear one, for coming to visit. I agree with you; the ocean is a cure for all stresses, longings, dreams. I am so glad you had a chance to get away to be on the shores of new dreams, as well as revitalizing your spirit. The art I brought home is gracing our home and we are that much closer to the sea because of the lovely oil paintings.

    Hoping the rest of your summer is a wonderful restful time! XOXOX

  10. Dearest Martina! HELLO! Thank you for stopping by to say hello. Yes, this trip we took was our 33rd anniversary gift to ourselves, being that our celebration happens in March in the middle of a busy school year. It had been way too long since we returned to that place, and Martina, you'd love everything about it: the beach, the art galleries, the fairytale homes.

    Hey, are you on Instagram? I have my photos there to share if you ever want to look me up.

    Well my dear, the day is calling and I am going to seize the day! MUCH LOVE! Anita
