I have a confession to make: where we live isn't my first choice. I'm an ocean girl. The ocean fascinates me with its ever constant waves, sandy beaches and life underneath its surface. I love those silly little sandpipers darting in and out of the waves. I love watching the antics of seagulls. I am fascinated with jellyfish and their gracefulness in scooping up their food. I love whales and dolphins, and have been known to shed tears watching them. (Causing me endless teasing, at times, from my family.) I love the incredible, wild color combinations on fish like the clownfish. I love sea urchins and anemones. And sea stars. So, what does this have to do with a facelift? It was time to update my blog template, and I found the one with a lighthouse and harbor theme. Perfect! Summer's almost here and at least we have Lake Michigan nearby...not exactly an ocean, but a wonderful body of water none-the-less! In the meantime, here are some recent beach pictures: What feels better than dipping one's toes into the cool water and walking along the beach? And especially walking with a sweetie, a family member or a friend? Here Wes and I are on the beach in Texas at Galveston Island. And, by the way, I don't think I'll be one who ever gets a facelift. It is what it is. I am what I am.
