go big, go epic ~ my love is the sea

T.G.I.F. For real.
For some reason this week has had my mind on the ocean and surfing and somehow wishing I could be near the sea on a sunny, hot day. I miss those days of my toes in the sand {and maybe a beer in my hand} and the salt air in my hair... and then I started thinking about when I worked for Quiksilver, it was such a great job {but the lowest pay ever, sorry that part of it sucked} and the vibe was always great and I loved being around chill people all day, it mostly reminded me of high school, really. It just made things easy. And in this box of pictures that I recently came across, I found a couple snapshots from those days; I was 24 and living in Miami. It was so awesome.



Also I wanted to share a couple favorite surf inspired spots in the city, Reunion and Saturdays and a favorite website to get my ocean fix on those days when I’m in desperate need of some ocean time… check out Dane Peterson’s photography blog. Amazing images and so inspiring.

“we are tied to the ocean.
and when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch -
we are going back from whence we came.”

Wow @ the pic of you at 24! The hair cut was cute. You look way younger though. Like high school or early college years. How fun though working at a store, living in MIA...sweet life.
