31 for 21: Summers Sweet Return

Fall in New England means crunching leaves under your feet, cool days and even cooler nights. The smell in the air is a mixture of everything that has blossomed over the summer and left it's scent lingering, then add to that the smells of apples and pumpkins, grasses, and leaves.  If you've ever been out in these neck of the woods you know what I'm trying to explain. It's an intoxicating battle of the seasons where sweetness and spiciness battle for the crown.

So to have a day at the beach in October is a rare and delightful treat.  Yesterday we took full advantage of Summers brief return and got to enjoy a day by the ocean. We were even able to swim in the water. 

Emilia ran and ran, her giggles bouncing of the waves and filling the beach.

*btw, You probably noticed that I have no header picture. I tried to change it and now blogger won't let me upload anymore photos. Says I have reached my limit...again! But it obviously is allowing me to upload in to my post. I've switched editors back and forth and that's not working this time. If anyone has any suggestions please feel free to lend some advice.

Sorry - I don't know what to tell you about the header issues, but the photos in the post are beautiful! Looks like you had an awesome time. (I'm so jealous! My hubby doesn't like sand... Kuwait will do that to a guy, so we don't go to the beach. ):

Emily has that same swimsuit, I love it! I have never been to your neck of the woods, but I would love to one day, it's sounds like the perfect place to experience fall!

Love all the pics....especially the one of Em's piggie toes! Adorable! Who knew you could actually go to the beach and swim in October?! It's been gorgeously warm in Michigan too! I am loving it!
