My Happy Place

The "place" that makes me happiest, isn't really located in one particular location. In reality, I am happiest where the ocean meets the land. I love the beach.

Galapagos, Baja, Maui, Fire Island

It doesn't really matter where, what state, country, continent - as long as I can dig my toes into the sand, smell the salty air, hear the crashing of the waves. Something inside of me just lets go. I can breathe deeper, sleep longer, smile easier.

I'm lucky to live only 45 minutes from the ocean - but really, it's no quite close enough. One day I want to be able to live somewhere where I can hear the ocean as a lullaby and walk the beach every night to recharge. One day!

Maybe growing up in the desert made my love for the beach stronger, who knows. I hope my little guy loves the beach as much as I do...I'm spending my day dreaming of the beach. Hope you have a Happy Monday too!

  2. I'm totally a day at the beach girl too and I prefer the sand with a dash of sea water. I am deathly afraid of the deep sea though.

    1. I am a little too. My husband like to scuba dive but that just makes me nervous. I like to snorkel closer to the shore!

  11. I too love the beach. I was taught as a child that when something is bothering you go to the beach, when a wave comes up, tell it your problem. When the wave goes back out, it takes your problem with it and you no longer have to worry. Granted it does not always work, but I still go there and try.

  13. I finally made the connection with who you are and your blog =) Yay for that. The ocean is very nice, and it's nice to be so close to it... but even 45 minutes away is a lot closer than states away =)

    I'm sure you'll get there one day!

  17. My happy place is in the mountains. I like the enclosed feeling. At home my bedroom is my happy place. When I get a house I'll have a craft room and that will be my happy place!

  18. I to miss the beach so much! I grew up in the Monterey Bay area, and I always had access to the beaches in Monterey and Santa Cruz. That is the sad thing about living in Arizona, I am so far from the beaches. My kids love going to the beach when we visit in CA. It is so relaxing and peaceful there :)
