Shades of Blue

It's no secret that I'm a fan of the color blue. I like it in all shades (just take a look at the walls in our house) - I don't discriminate. In fact, my wedding dress was even blue. What really blew (no pun intended, honestly!) me away though, was the variety of "blues" found in the waters around Bora Bora. I never knew blue came in so many lovely options - I may have to repaint the walls, yet again!

During the honeymoon, Jason and I took some time to REALLY relax... not your garden-variety lounging, we did some serious my-butt-is-sore-from-not-moving-in-six-hours resting. And when not reading a book or examining the insides of my eyelids, I stared at the water and constantly wondered how it got so blue (deep thoughts by Sarah). When I (rarely) chose to come back to reality, it was usually due to some enormous fish (in shades of blue, purple and green) that caught my eye, or even an octopus or sting ray, depending on the day!

If anyone reading this thinks they need a vacation, I'm here to back you up... go make your reservations and find your own shades of blue! There's nothing like time away from your normal routine to make you realize what's important in life... mostly, living it.

Here are my favorite "blue" pictures from the wedding and honeymoon...
