Friday Confessional

Dearest readers, I have something to confess.
I think it is only right that I should be up front with you all, since you really are the best lot and have been so very good to me. The truth is, as much as I love my shiny place here in blog town, and as much as I strive to be present and attentive, I have not been completely one hundred percent "here" lately. In fact, even as I am writing this, my mind is wandering off, distracted by thoughts other than you and this post. I know, shame on me but, I just can't help it, really I can't. I am being haunted by memories - from just one year ago, and a longing has made it's way into my heart. I am happy, I am blessed, I have more than I need but still, I yearn, I pine even - and I feel unsettled. As I drift off away from you and the task at hand, I am replaying a scene in my mind; recalling a place so dear to me...

...and it looks like this

and this...

and this...



Perhaps you can understand then, that the islands are calling me; like a siren song, like nectar from the sweetest flower, like the whisper of a darkly tanned local surfer boy...

ummm, where was I?

I hope you can forgive me my wandering ways, and just maybe if you are in some wintry clime where it is cold and gray, you can understand my pining and daydreaming.

Oh yes, I have a little something to share that may just bring about some longing of your own. Floss, of Troc, Broc and Recup' is having a truly swoon worthy giveaway just now. Think French, think vintage, now go check it!

I will be back next week with crafty news, a change of plans and a whole lot of rambling on.
Until then, have a lovely weekend and treat yourself kindly!

I see myself there on that sandy beach...then reality hits as I look out the window at the dreary winter day. Spring is calling, but it has a very faint voice.

changing plans sounds interesting. I hope you get to see those islands soon!

Kristi said...

Oh yes after living 12 years and birthing my two babies on Maui, it calls to me everyday! I think it always will.

Hello Alex
I know we've discussed this before, but there are times when the ocean calls doesn't it? I have a calling too, and must visit the coast soon. Your coast line looks like paradise - just where is that beach? Oh, to feel the warmth of sunshine on shoulders and faces... I dream of summer time...
Looking forward to hearing all your news next week,

Kristi is right, it's Maui! Wow, 12 years, I lived there for 5 years as a kid and go back not nearly as often as I would like. The ocean does call to many of us.

You're making me crave that beach and it's summer where I am right now. Hope you had a lovely and restful weekend, even if it wasn't filled with views as stunning as those. Can't wait to hear your news this week. xo m.

I've been to Ohau twice, but never Maui. I long to go back there nearly every day, but being 5000 miles away makes it feel like it's a dream-land, impossible to get back to!
