It’s raining outside right now, which makes me so very happy and excited, but I wanted to share a few pictures from our trip to the beach the other week. It could not have been a more gorgeous and perfect day for the beach! There is little I love in nature more than a NoCal beach on a perfect day. I’m not huge into the swimsuit/sunbathing scene of hot beaches, but there is something so therapeutic about listening to the waves and feeling the breeze and tasting the sun. So the beautifully comfortable beaches of Northern California were practically made for me. The boys loved it and James only made me almost mess myself from fear a few times while running (too close for my comfort) through the very shallow tide (those waves come big and fast, people!!). Anyway, we laughed a lot and it was so wonderful to sit back and basque in the beautiful rays of motherhood and my boys’ happiness. It was just what my heart needed that day. And everyday. I want to take time every day to be still and observe my children’s happiness. It is just so rewarding.
