30 days of gratitude : 29

I know there has been a lot of similar photos to this one - taken as Che crawls away from me, towards the water. It's just what's been happening lately. I put him down on the sand and off he goes. The sea beckons. Who am I to stop him?

With his snazzy new nappy cozzies on (yes, a nappy built into the swimmers), his rashy and sunhat he fully immersed himself in the sea and he loved every minute of it. It felt good to spend the late afternoon near the water. It's pure summer to me.

Summer needs music too and I am so happy to have found this CD. Mike was a few years above me at school and for as long as I've known him he's always sung beautiful songs. But this new creation is by far his best. It's folky, bluesy and earthy - sweet sounds to lull us all on summer evenings. Go ahead, have a listen. You'll like it, I promise.

Gratitude today for the sea water and a good tune.


  1. That is so cute - heading off into the water - so brave!

    I am so loving the Madame's tea. Thank you for the post!

  2. Love the 30 days of gratitude idea. There is truly so much to be thankful for. Summer days at the beach with the babe- how lovely! Makes me miss the sea.

    Now I'm off to check out that music CD you mentioned.

  3. can never get too many photos of a cute babe at the beach, lovely to see him enjoying it.looking forward to swimming weather coming my way (been in dresses and skirts but havent braved the water yet! soon...)

  4. Those bright bots are such a great idea - I have a pair for melli too.
    Love your sweet stories of your toddler's adventures.

  5. Very beautiful, watching them explore their environment.

  6. Oh that's beautiful! Makes me want to head to the beach right now. Not quite the weather for it here today, maybe tomorrow.
