First things first, apologies for the extended absence. I had plans to post wonderful lake pictures (it was beyond perfect) but there was a death in the family that weekend and I just didn't feel like taking any. I also had to scramble around at home doing last minute July wedding planning. I did an earlier post with pictures from the courthouse wedding in March, so you are all probably confused... We got married quite fast because of above mentioned sick family member in March and decided to wait to have a big wedding until this summer. We were just going to head over to the courthouse but our wonderful New York friends decided to make it a really nice day for us.
Anyhow, the insanity is almost over and we finally got to have some fun this weekend. We headed out to Robert Moses Beach on Fire Island, and I finally got to wear my vintage boater hat from Venice! It turns out that it is one of the best beaches in America for finding sea glass. I actually started collecting sea glass about six years ago and make people bring it back for me whenever they find some in other countries and cities. It's become a bit of an obsession; my goal is to fill an entire apothecary jar of it some day! I also collect rocks and shells, and bits of earth from foreign places. It makes the world feel more real and manageable when I have a little shard from every corner, and makes me less anxious about not seeing all of it before I go.
