The Beach

We went to the beach on the weekend, first time since last Summer.

I saw the ocean through the fresh eyes of our kids. 
They were jumping, splashing, squealing, it was pure freedom and joy for them (us too). 

We forgot the beach umbrella, but it wasn't too hot, it felt so nice to get out in the sun.
I forgot my togs, but it didn't matter, so I got a little wet, my clothes dried out eventually. 
 I forgot my diet too, and ate pistachio gelato without feeling guilty, so what? 

Stole a cheeky kiss from my sweetheart on the shore,
there's something about the sea, it seems to bring out my relaxed, spontaneous side.
I couldn't stop smiling!

Of course I forgot to take photos of all of this, guess we were too absorbed in the moment.

Yes, Winter is well and truly behind us now,
with Summer just around the corner saying, "I'm waiting!". 

I'm so grateful for days like this.

How was your weekend?

Hi Sam..I am so glad to find you here. I love your bunting and the fact that you've used calico shopping bags to make it! I was intrigued by using a 'neutral' space for play..maybe that's why my kids always wanted to play in the lounge room? And... your cake...mmmm, delicous looking! I'm now following you too.
