Vacation All I Ever Wanted

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Beach Vacay

I just came back from a weeklong vacation on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I read The Help, ate way too many hushpuppies, played with my adorable niece Sammy, lamented the sad selection at the Barree Station in Duck (no more J.Crew, and no more tent sales! I miss the good ol’ days), breathed in the seascape and accompanying seafoam (to match my pedicure, natch), admired green pond moss that looked lice lace and sparkled like glitter at sunset, and was, as always, a sucker for great packaging.

    Thanks to all who replied here. One thing I find myself doing these days is unsubscribing to high profile once-favorited blogs and then using the contact and/or comment feature to let a site know why I'm giving up on them. No one can force them to be honest, but I'm no longer willing to tick up their viewer-count so they can keep their advertisers happy and show up as worthy peacocks at blog award events.
