freedom day

it’s freedom day in south africa today, which also meant a very long and freeing weekend for whoever took off monday as i did. i filled my days & nights with a sleeping late, watching mad men & 30 rock, drinking tea and red wine and gin & dry lemon with friends, napping, eating eggs + avo on rye every breakfast, celebrating a birthday, beach walking etc… lit the first fire of the season – the days are getting shorter, colder and my feet are actually requiring socks in the evenings.

care free

wouldn’t mind feeling like this right now.

instead have deadlines to meet and birthday presents to buy and a slight wine hangover to deal with. things have been a bit lackluster around here but i promise i’ll perk it up soon enough!

i didn’t take a lot of photos this holiday because i was either eating, reading, drinking, eating, lying in the sun, snoozing, eating, drinking, walking on the beach, riding my bike, eating, napping etc etc. you know? but i did wander onto the beach one evening before sunset to take these shots. the sky really was all pink & blue! maaagical.

going back to work on monday, but at least the weather will still be allowing this for the next few months…
