A Weekend By The Sea


Last Friday Sam and I decided to pack the car up and head away for a weekend by the sea. We both love living in Leeds and we've made a very happy life here, but with the nearest coast being at least a two hour drive away it can sometimes feel a little bit land locked. Luckily for us, Sam's parents live right near the water, so when Sam got booked for a gig in North Wales, we decided to make a weekend of it and get our seaside fix. We had a lovely couple of days - there's something about being in the middle of nowhere that seems to make time slow down a little bit. We ate great food (mostly cooked by my lovely mum-in-law, Diana, who is quite the domestic goddess), took in some local sights and slept more soundly than we have done in ages. It was bliss, and just what we both needed after a hectic couple of weeks.

As it was our first time visiting Anglesey since the wedding, we decided to follow a route that took us past the church where we got married and the beach where we had some of our photos taken. Just like on our wedding day, the weather surprised us and the blue skies made us feel like we were somewhere much more exotic than North Wales!

Plus, it gave me a very fitting opportunity to wear my new favourite jumper (which just so happens to be in the sale now - thank me later!).

We only spent half an hour or so strolling along the beach but it was blissful - there's something about listening to the crashing waves and and admiring the deep blue water that just makes me so happy. It really is the best medicine and I hope I get to live by the sea one day.
