Justin secretly snapped these photos on our beach stroll home from whale watching and I absolutely love what they represent: the appreciation and joy of the simple things in life. Choosing to walk along the shore instead of the paved path allowed me to feel the warmth of the sun on my back, the cold water rush over my feet, my toes sink into the wet sand, and the wind blow through my hair, to listen to the waves crash as little ones screamed with excitement and seagulls cried out for food, and to breath in the salty, fresh air of the ocean. A moment of perfect serenity walking side-by-side silently with a loved one. A moment to appreciate all the decisions that led to that day and place. A moment to soak in the thrill of the journey.
Hope you enjoy the simple things in your life this weekend! Happy Friday!
