Dreaming of hot summer days by the pool. I'm in love with these beauties.
|Newport Beach California|
Every once in awhile I get a pang of childhood whimsy. Growing up we spent a great majority of our time on the beach. The days seemed endless with squelching sand to warm us after swimming in that crisp Pacific Ocean. When I think back on those times a playlist of early 90's radio streams in my head and I feel as though I can smell that salty air and feel that coastal wind whipping through my hair. I can see my brother teaching me how to body surf, my sister digging for sand crabs and gathering them in a bright red bucket and my parents on striped beach towels wearing oversized hats and sunglasses. It was simply blissful and somedays I wish I could go back there, if only just to appreciate it more.
I am so grateful that I can look back upon my childhood and remember glorious times. That goodness is the first thing I think of when I remember being a kid....
And I hope that no matter what happens in our lives now that my children will think back to these young days with fondness - and that they will one day wish they could dissolve themselves back into these times.
How about you... What are some of your favorite childhood memories?

|Never thought I would want to buy a Ford, but we LOVE this car, the Ford Freestyle! Hoping to be purchasing one before Spring. I am super excited to have my own vehicle, we've shared 1 car for 5 1/2 years and it has saved us a lot of money, but we're ready to try out a new season of not being trapped in the house with 2 babies all the time!|
