I am currently sitting with the lake water lapping off the rocks, being cooled by the salty breeze wafting through the air carrying the sounds of children laughing and screaming, seagulls squawking, and the stunning view of the shoreline.
The beach has always been my home. I remember the first time I was taken to the beach in South Carolina as a little, chubby cheeked girl. One look at the rolling blue waters and sand that stretched to eternity and my arms were flailing out to the side as I clumsily dashed my way down the beach, leaving the others in a swirl of sand like the dust of the road runner. You could almost hear the passionate “I’m a bird,” reminiscent of Allie in The Notebook (one of my favourite movies by the way). As much as this may seem like rambling, it paints the perfect image of my love for sparkling water and boundless shorelines. How, when I need to remember what’s important in life, you know where I’ll be found and why I will one day live along the water’s edge. Here, right now, seems like the perfect place to begin my journey with you.
THANK YOU. It is no accident that you found this blog. Everything I’ve been through has brought me to where I am now. The same is true for you. I hope you connect with the material on here and with me, and my greatest hope is that in some way, shape or form, this blog will help inspire you to live in the moments of that chubby cheeked, beach loving girl. Those moments when time stops and you simply ARE.
I feel so truly blessed to have the opportunity to connect with you. I wish you all the peace, health and happiness in the world. It’s waiting for you.
WITH SO MUCH LOVE,
