In the summertime when the heat sizzles on the city streets, I escape to the water. I feel so lucky to have a home away from home at the beach. It has always been my go-to place on summer weekends, or any time I’m feeling stressed, emotional, or too wrapped up in the minute details of day to day life. It’s funny how when you take a step back, certain things become clear. And, after what feels like weeks of rainy weather in Philly, the clouds also cleared and it was nothing but blue skies and sunshine all weekend – we took full advantage by spending every waking moment outdoors. The beach at sunset is a truly beautiful thing…the sun may not set over the ocean here on the east coast but it splashes it with color as it goes down, turning the beach the most breathtaking shades of pink and violet. It was of course 4th of July as well so we took the opportunity to snap some patriotic pics. How did you guys spend the holiday?
