blogshop mondays / sunshine souvenirs

Hi, my name is Shoko. I write a blog called sho & tell, and I’m very happy to be making an appearance on My Sea Story this week. Thanks so much for having me, Joana!

As I wrote this blog post Saturday night, snow was falling in New York City. A freak October snowstorm, needless to say, is a bit of a peculiar backdrop for writing a post about sun and surf, and it got me thinking – since not all of Joana’s readers are lucky enough to live in the tropics, what are some ways those of us who are in for a long, cold winter can add a little bit of summer to the days ahead?

Here, a few cheerful pops of sunshine to help make life happy when skies are gray.
