Where I Can Breathe

As my husband and I strolled around Annapolis on Sunday night–our first date night in many, many moons–we were stopping to take photographs. The city looked amazing; the sky was a blue that’s tough to forget, and there were few clouds on the picturesque canvas.

There’s something about being near the water. Quite simply, I can breathe when I’m there. And it has to do with the water: it’s the way it looks, the way it smells, the way it shimmers, and the way it rolls and dances.

I feel like an entirely different person when I’m there. I wouldn’t have written a contemporary romance novel set in in Annapolis had I, myself, not felt a certain passion for or had a pure love affair with that city.

Here are some of the shots I took that night. So here’s to Annapolis, the place where one can breathe.

  1. Those photos explain so clearly and beautifully why we chose to settle here…and why we are here to this day. It’s lovely to hear you have the same appreciation for the area. Mom
