"Her favorite color is blue.
She says that blue is associated with vastness;
the skies are blue, the oceans are blue."
- Mahbod Seraji
I read this quote on theletteredcottage.net and it immediately came to mind while feeling the sand between my toes and seeing the sky meet the ocean while on holiday in California a few weeks ago.
While we played, explored, ate, and vacationed, I was aware of so many different blues.
My camera roll was filled with photos of my boys, and any blues that caught my eye, and many times both.
Yes, I'm a gal that will snap a photo of your quaint blue house while on a walk...
...to a location with yet another blue.
Yes, I'm also the gal that thrift shops while on vacation.
If you follow me on Instagram, #livelygracehome , I shared this pic a while back.
I was feeling pretty confident that no-one was going to give a touristy gal a hard time when she had a metal hook sticking out of her pack, and a metal clank while she walked.
This is what I scored at that store with the blue sign, and a peek at the find with the metal hook!
Then there was this perfect sea-glass blue I saw.
Dearest Anthropologie... this chair is perfection.
The blue of the pool and a swim with a great kiddo was just perfect after my shopping trek on a hot day.
The best part of all these blues, was experiencing them with my boys.
Maybe I should vacation more often, I'm afraid the everyday business in our lives distracts us from seeing so much of what is around us.
Happy Vacation Blues
