the magic hour

June 6, 2011 |  Category:   life travels

The hour right after sunset until darkness falls is magic. My favorite time of day by far, made even more magical by a bonfire on the beach roasting marshmallows.

It’s Monday and it’s hard to get back into the swing of things, I must admit. Still have vacation brain and the end of the school year has snuck up on me. I am not at all prepared for when the kids are out of school.

PS. Thank you for the anniversary wishes, friends.

    Jenna I absolutely love the first photo of the beach houses and pink sky! It looks like you had a truly magical vacation.

    It is winter here and I am hanging out for some warm weather and the beach. Only 19 days, but whose counting :), until we go to Fiji.

    Your photos put me in a peaceful mood. It makes me want to have a campfire and roast some morsels with some friends.

    The first photo reminds me of Rene Magritte’s day and night paintings. Beautiful.
