To quote a song these are a few of my favorite things.
Last week Chris took me on a work trip to Florida and made me a promise. He said we would stop at every beach along the way so I could get my toes in the sand repeatedly.
Well, we did not stop at each and every beach but we stopped at at least 10 so I was one happy camper.
The problem was the weather in Florida was unusually chilly (as was the rest of the country) so the beach walks I imagined did not happen quite as I had anticipated.
The scenario was more like this:
Get ziplock bag and label it.
Run to beach.
Fight blowing sand and wind and fill ziplock with sand.
Run back to car.
Turn heat seaters on.
I have a big glass jar that I keep sand in from different beaches we have visited and my goal was to add to it. Of course I just started doing this not too long ago so there is no way it has all of the beaches we have visited over the years. But it is still fun to see the different kinds of sand in the layers.
It’s kind of like the sands of time. The sand represents different times in my life. Different beaches. Different memories.
Do you have anything that reminds you of vacations or favorite places? I would love to hear about it in the comments section . Each comment this month means a 50 cent donation to ASPCA through our Comments for a Cause
If you need a little beach view feel free to click on this very short video. You can hear the wind and the surf which may not be a bad thing depending on what your weather is like in your corner of the world.
And what about that husband of mine? Pretty wonderful, right? I am blessed.
