You guys! I am on the Outer Banks in North Carolina as we speak. (!!) I am having a bit of a Rachel Zoe moment because everything is ba.na.nas. It is so gorgeous I cant even handle it. Did you know that other than a quick trip to San Diego I have never been to the beach? (I mean, of course you didnt know that. But now you do!) I am here for Click photography retreat with my girl Cara and a pile of other talented ladies.
We flew in with a massive storm brewing and the ocean churning something fierce. The entire street was awakened at 6 am (4 am Utah time) to lightening hitting a telephone pole that is literally 200 yards away from our house. I thought for sure it had hit the house and I was super nervous to touch my doorknob (just in case there was a bit of electricity still lingering.) Cara couldnt be bothered. She had to get her beauty sleep (that is her secret to it all, I am convinced.)
The good news? They are totally prepared for stuff like this. There is so much chocolate here. The bad news?…
So here is just a little glimpse of the fun.
On the decorating front, I feel like I finally get Coastal decor. The colors that you find in nature here are nothing like what you find in Southern Utah. It is so gray, but not in a dreary way. It just is. And the beach is just so powerful and inspiring.
Fun fact: Did you know that Americans spell the color Gray with an A and people in Europe spell it Grey? So either spelling is right, it just depends on where you are. And you can totes remember it A for America and E for England.
You are welcome.
But the best part is that I discovered that I have this freaky (and a little terrifying) hidden talent.
In an attempt to explain to me why Cara loved a certain baseball team, she brought up the soap opera Passions. Do you remember it?!
Apparently it made quite the impression on me. I could name literally every person in it. I was so caught off guard by it. Because while I loved it, I was not a freaky super fan. I mean, I didnt think I was.
But we are talking prodigy level folks.
Theresa, Sheridan, Gwen, Ethan, Whitney, Chad, Fancy, I mean, I can go on for days.
Did you love Passions? Do you love the Outer Banks? How about chocolate?
