Ahhhh, I’m back from 10 days of sitting at the edge of the Atlantic ocean. Truly, my only worry being would the tide dare to reach my chair. And, when would the 8 kids be hungry again, oh to have their metabolism and energy!
We clearly had a house full. It was mayhem at times but oh so much fun. I love this time of year and the 4th of July at the beach is the best. I love it because like Thanksgiving, it is a holiday that’s about family, friends, relaxing, and being thankful. No stress of gift exchanges in sight.
Throw in sunshine, sand, surf, and good company and I am recharged to take on the rest of Summer. I truly believe getting your dose of Vitamin Sea is essential. If you can’t get to the ocean, a pool, a lake, a sprinkler will all work too. Look at that smile! Kids making memories.
I’m a big believer in a mid-year pause to reset your intentions and energy for the every busy back half of the year. If I lived by water, I would never tire of the sunrises or the sunsets – it’s truly a spiritual experience that would be a blessing to set your clock to. Enjoy some of my favorite sunrise and sunset pics – my phone camera just can’t quite capture the magnitude of the free show the sky puts on daily.
I hope you are finding time to enjoy lazy Summer days. Visit new places. Spend time with family. And make new friends. Enjoy!
