the first weekend of july

remember my visit to southern california a couple of years ago to meet up with family and attend this course on ucla? well, this summer my cousins decided to take some greek holiday. 
so, we took them to syros, our second home. the morning light was amazing on the house and i couldn't resist taking a picture even though i hadn't had my morning coffee yet. 
of course, as promised there was a lot of greek salad and souvlaki....

and just being lazy under the sun - all day long.....

but then deciding to build a castle....
.... and having big family dinners by the sea. i've had so much fun and i can't wait for all of them to get back from their island hopping. yes, i am stuck in athens, while the family travels around syros, mykonos and santorini. but this weekend i'll be showing them around town. i just can't bare the thought of them flying away.
