afternoon picnic

she shows you a picture of the summer you first met. you smile, the happiest time of your life rushing over you like a gentle wave, a reassurance. timeless. a summer of whispered promises, of two pedicured pairs of feet. morning hikes, afternoon picnics, evening strolls through the park. morning cuddles, her voice raspy with sleep and limbs clumsy. matching dresses and kissing away tears from her cheeks. a summer of the sand and the sea and her, always her.


The lovely girls from the tea house I work at have been getting together to have tea! This is our little Summer Picnic Tea party! On the East Fork Lewis River in Washington.

The Fencing Excuse Ch. 2

Here’s the second chapter! Hopefully this will be a seven chapter story in total. I’m having a lot of fun writing it! If you have feedback, please let me know!

Also, I’m tagging @imagine-miraculousladybug again, because I got the headcanon from her blog. (If you don’t me to tag you anymore, it’s fine, just let me know!)

Summary:  When Marinette’s entire class finds out how muscularly toned she is, she panics and says it’s because she fences. One thing leads to another and suddenly she’s talked into dueling Adrien for fun. She needs help, and turns to her superhero counterpart for it. The help she ends up getting takes an unexpected turn, but she’s not sure if it’s for better or for worse yet.

My new rule is to never leave the house without my camera.
And today it paid off.

I spent this afternoon having a picnic for the birthday of a friend in Treptower Park. When I noticed the light change, I quickly said goodbye, grabbed my bike and quickly headed to Elsenbrücke where I was greeted with this.

Afternoon Picnic || Sam and Sebastian

Sam had been at Pandora for about a week now, and so far he’d met and talked to a lot of different people, people with strange powers like him.  But he hadn’t really hung out with a lot of people thus far.  Mostly, he’d spent his free time with Puck, as they’d become best friends (at least in Sam’s mind).  There had been the perfect opportunity last night, but Sam hadn’t gone to the party because of what had happened with Puck.  But still, Sam wanted to branch out and make more friends.  Most of the people he’d talked to so far seemed pretty cool, like Santiago, Kurt, Cole, Blaine, Quentin, Ev, Joe, and Sebastian, and the latter was whom he had plans with this afternoon.  Sam took a quick shower before choosing what to wear, smirking as he thought of what Sebastian had said about hating clothes.  He ended up going with a white t-shirt and shorts.  After grabbing a bottle of water, Sam headed outside to the courtyard, where he was to meet Sebastian for their picnic.
