Traditions in Connecticut

September 12, 2012

Yay! I did it! I worked around Photoshop because I love our friend’s beach house and I wanted to share these images with you! It’s so much fun to manipulate a picture that you ALREADY love. It’s easy to see how you can go crazy with your camera in such a gorgeous setting. I have a LONG way to go with photography but I’m just having fun now. See how beautiful Kinsey’s home is? I love, love nooks and especially window seats and she has so many! Here is another…

I would curl up with a book in this room and never leave. Not even to go to the beach across the road. Ever.

My favorite thing about Kinsey’s style is that she mixes and matches. I love the pineapples on the fireplace in the bedroom.

Isn’t this dining room gorgeous? And Kinsey is definitely THE BEST HOSTESS. She served drinks for Diego and Santi in little red and blue glass ware that she used to drink out of as a little girl! I was holding my breath while my little ones drank praying that they wouldn’t break them! The home has been in her family for many, many years and Kinsey has put a lot of work into it herself over the summers. We are honored to keep going back for a weekend to reunite with her and Jose’s old friends. Thanks Kinsey! We love you!

Your friend,

    This house is amazing! I would love a second home like that near a beach. That would be a dream come true. I have yet to venture out to that side of the U.S. I heard it’s beautiful and hope to be taking Jake one day. Love the photography Betty… I’m trying to take better pics myself. Kudos to you!
