School is over, class picnics and potlucks and schedules are now behind us. Alas, Summer has arrived in our lives. Yesterday was our first official day and it was glorious. We started the day at the beach with friends, came home and made cookies and then delivered them by bike to the local firehouse (his idea), and then went back to the beach until dinnertime. Not bad for day #1 of Summer, no? Today was not as exciting…but I did do some editing and thought I’d share a few sweet ones from a recent session. I love the way that the ocean speaks to everyone, regardless of their age. I know that she has been speaking to me lately…
