Summer Wishes x

Two whole days of sunshine. Maybe we will have a summer.

I hope so.  It’s my favourite time of year for many reasons – but one is the gentle pleasure of walking along a shore line in bare feet with my daughter, looking for Sea Diamonds…

Maybe one day I’ll get to go to a glass beach like this one near Fort Bragg, California in Mackerricher State Park…

I want our collection to be made into a piece of jewellery for Bella’s eighteenth birthday – a creation of companionship and shared joy where for a little while we lived on a planet of our own peace.
