Dreaming of Brighton

Whew! It's been quite a long time since I've revisited these vacation photos. In all honesty, it's been really difficult to get back to my normal life since I got home. I lost two very important people the day I left for this trip and then in the following weeks after I got home. It's been extremely hard for me to cope with and needless to say, it's been even more difficult to gain momentum and start up my hobbies again all the while keeping up with school and work. There's been a lot of stress, sadness, and worry for my family but I FINALLY feel like I can focus and think clearly again. I feel extremely lucky for having both of these people in my life and I count my blessings every single day.

So, as I was going through these photos all over again, I realized that I almost forgot how much Brighton stole my heart. I mean WOW, isn't she a beauty?! We stayed for 2 days and nights and leaving Brighton was probably one of the hardest things I'll ever do in my life (seriously). We spent most of our days soaking up the sunlight on the rocky beach and got ourselves into some hilariously sketchy situations at night. We absolutely could not get enough of the sounds the waves made when they rolled over the pebbles, so we watched the sunset and spent several hours of the night on that beach. Probably not the best idea, but we were O.K (aside from me losing my phone on the pitch black beach and then falling asleep on it). We mastered the art of rock stacking and skipping and stayed on that beach well into the night with some drinks and good conversation. Man, we need to go back ASAP!

Not going to lie, most of this time we were completely drunk so it was humanly impossible to get a good photo of ourselves or each other. Yikes! These are hands down the best photos we have of ourselves from Brighton which is sort of sad and pathetic but you gotta do what you gotta do. I have my back turned because we quickly realized that my face and grin were drunk, and Colette is just a big sass. Whoops!
