Fourth of July

We spent our entire day at the beach. Resting, relaxing, reading Stefan’s scripts, soaking up the sun… a perfect day, if you ask me. Dinner was at a small seafood restaurant in my hometown that overlooks the water. It’s never very crowded, but the food is delicious and the view is amazing. Fireworks for miles. There were oysters, lobsters, and (naturally) bottles of wine. I couldn’t have asked for a better day – or evening! I hope you had a wonderful fourth too!

    Love this. A day at the beach and then some wine with dinner sounds absolutely perfect! And was that pedicure one of your DIY projects?! 🙂 it’s flawless.

    • graceatwood says 7.8.12

      Sadly the pedicure was not a DIY… I got ’em done. I’m just not that great at doing my own nails. 🙂 Hope you had a wonderful fourth!!
