I absolutely love our family days at the beach in the summertime. I think watching all of the cousins laugh and goof around while body surfing in the ocean is the best feeling in the world. This year our home has expanded by three; my niece Brittany and her two kids live with us, (from the East Coast), so let the adventure begin!
Melissa, (my cousin), and I always have long talks with our toes in the sand, making sure we are reminding each other to keep our attentions in the moment, to embrace life, keep it simple and really appreciate all of the blessings we love so much. We're especially trying to concentrate on keeping happy and satisfied with just what's around us, or within reach, (as far as traveling budget or family trips this summer). Lucky for us, we live in a diverse landscape. Our mountains have a few lakes with any summer sports to choose from, and then we're about an hour from the most beautiful beaches in the world. I think we have the perfect spot!
Enjoy your summer,
