Dark sky and light ocean at Topsail Island.
We had a fabulous time, but my favorite part of the weekend was sleeping on the deck at the foot of the ocean with Pretty Handsome Guy. Nothing can compare to being lulled to sleep by the ocean!
Some of you noticed that I have a new profile picture. I am forever indebted to John for taking several pictures of me specifically for my blog. (Being the photographer in our house means that I have very few photos of myself.)
So, since I still have summer on the brain, I wanted to go ahead and introduce you to these beauties that hold bottled up beachy goodness in them.
If you have been one of my readers for a month, you may recognize these from the tour I gave of the Painted Cottage in Ocean Isle Beach, NC. Leigh is the owner, and she was so sweet to offer something to give away to my readers. That’s right, these two beautiful glass bottles could be yours. And, because I REALLY want to thank my followers, I’m giving you five chances to enter the giveaway.

Wow, you have up to five chances to win! On October 1st, I will pick a winner using Random.org. I’m looking forward to sending some summer beach love to one of my readers. Good luck!
Okay, now I need to try to get in synch with the autumn spirit. How about if I just stare at John’s beautiful “Fall Colors” photograph!
