Happy Friday!

I was going through a bunch of old negatives and ended up scanning a few. These are from 2006

We went to the Northshore on this day. My shirt got wet and the only other one I had was a Banzai Pipeline tee from my old surf company job. I’m sure life was a lot more stressful than it looks in these photos, but looking back at them really makes me miss those simpler times. Driving to the beach, laying out on the grass at sunset with a drink and fresh fruit from the yard, sleeping with the windows open in December, the sound of the wind rustling through the trees, the singing birds. These photos make me happy : )

Have a great 4th of July.

*I also moved all the blog links to a tab on the top right. If I forgot to link you, please let me know ’cause I erased the links before I finished moving them over. Don’t know why I did that! Zzz

    aww.. simpler times..i know exactly what you mean. it’s always nice to peak into the archives. i found some old negatives that are 12 years old that i need to scan. i doubt they’re this charming. :)

      yess, i love digging in the archives. if i went back 12 years, well then, that would be a whole different story ahah. let’s just say PRE FLAT IRON, and also skinny eyebrows drawn in w/ dark liner. what the? maybe that was 15 years ago, yikes. we’ll have none of that :D

        hahahaha! the 90s were cruel to me, too! my fashion choices back then were questionable to say the least. :P
