A Kite Festival

Apr 29, 2013

These pictures didn't quite turn out the way I had originally envisioned they would. I had my hopes that it would be sunny and that it'd be warm enough to wear shorts or that I'd feel inspired enough to wear my hair down with more than just lip balm and a swipe of mascara. Nope. It didn't quite turn out. But that doesn't make me any less happy. I had a great day out watching the kites (I didn't fly my own- sadly, haven't done that since I was about 5) and walking through the warm sand. Even though the weather doesn't change much near the coast (one minute it's breezy and foggy, the next, it's sunny and windy), I'm looking forward to the arrival of summer because I'll be more inclined to take advantage of any nice, sunny days should they appear and also, I will (hopefully) be more excited about my wardrobe choices. What are the summers like in your area? And when was the last time you flew a kite?

P.S. Tomorrow, I will have been blogging for exactly one year! I've enjoyed every minute of it and am so pleased with myself for sticking through with it. I definitely have you all to thank for that motivation because it's so nice knowing that a lot of you can relate to my posts and vice versa. You keep me feeling inspired. Thank you.

  1. Oh wow, a kite festival! I am so envious, I had no idea things like this existed :) I love kites! I haven't flown one in forever, but my boyfriend bought me a brand new lovely kite with bows on it for Easter, as flying a kite is on my 25 by 25 list :) can't wait to go out and play with it! It looks so beautiful where you are. Our Summer's here in England really vary, but it's safe to say we don't usually get much warm weather. If we're blessed with a week we'll be lucky!! xx

    1. I had no idea they existed either! It was my first time going :) Oooh that'll be so nice! I hope you'll take pictures of you flying the kite! I can't imagine what England's weather is like although if it's unpredictable, I suppose that's what we're experiencing here on the coast...and I'm not the hugest fan of unpredictable weather! haha
