did you write life's a beach?

i spent all of last week on the beach.

i know. you should feel really sorry for me and my super hard life.

and when i say that i spent all of last week on the beach, i mean that quite literally. i was sitting. on the beach. all week. i did a lot of reading (i recommend "the particular sadness of lemon cake" by aimee bender), i did a lot of sleeping (i recommend this in general, with sunscreen if you are also sleeping on the beach), i did some body surfing and wave bobbing (i recommend being constantly aware of whether your bathing suit is covering everything it should be), and i ate a lot of tootsie pops (need i say more?).

in the very limited hours i was not on the beach, i was at the top of the historic hatteras lighthouse, or riding my bike on ocracoke island to see the wild ponies, or browsing adorable little shops in buxton, or eating homemade bread, or playing cranium with cousins.

but mostly i was on the beach.

all right, fine. you can stop feeling sorry for me now.
