In August, I was fortunate enough to spend a week in the humid depths of Florida with my love.
The year before, we fell in love with the Nevada desert on a week-long trip to Las Vegas to celebrate my impending adulthood. (Turning 21 and still being asked for ID in a casino was pretty sweet validation.)
already inspired by and enamoured with the arid emptiness of Nevada, I was surprised how much I adored Florida. for me, an unending source of inspiration is the ocean – I think I just have a Thing about vastness – and to be able to spend two days swimming in the Atlantic was a gift I’ll cherish for many years to come.
we stayed in a typical motel, and spent the humid mid-afternoons beside the pool. I was scrolling through my tumblr feed and came across this delightful retro blog, bleedhoney, and there was something about the juxtaposition of those two words that I fell in love with. I spent the rest of the week obsessing over the phrase and turning it into lyrics.
Luckily for me, it obsessed over me too. I hope you enjoy it!
