Right now, I can't stop pinning photos like this one. Some of it has to do with late summer and feeling with every fiber of my being that it's time to bake on a beach somewhere (I grew up going to the Carolina Coast every year). It's also because of my new writing project, which involves multiple coasts and cities. I love the colder, rocky coastline of the Pacific Northwest, but right now I just want to listen to Lana Del Rey and daydream about hot sand between my toes and cool water on my skin, a good book in my hands, and let's be honest, an umbrella, because I'm not getting any younger and I don't want skin cancer. Surely a few weeks of that would help me write my book...right?
