We have skipped spring and gone straight to summer in my neck of the woods. So this week, I drew inspiration from the water. To me, summer = water.
I long for the water. The beach, the waves, the shells, the smells.
If you get there before I do, save me spot in the sand and a drink for my hand.

Every shell is unique. Different shape, size, color, and texture.
Every shell has a history. Loved by an animal, battered by the seas, washed onto the shores, chosen by an admiring hand.
Loved, and lost, and loved again.
Most shells have been chipped, broken, and bruised over time. However, that only adds to their beauty.
I can’t help but thinking shells are a lot like people. We are all bruised, lost, and worn…
…but we are also all unique, and beautiful, and loved.

Winter, spring, SUMMER! Yes, the arrival of spring means summer is not far behind! I fully intend to savor every moment of spring, but that doesn’t mean I can’t also look forward to the excitement of summer. There are a million smells, tastes, and textures that come to mind when I think of summer.However, one beats out all the rest…
I look forward to wiggling my toes in the warm sand and walking along the water, letting the ocean waters wash my worries away.
The beach waits for no one…and I can’t wait for the beach.
