There is something magically simple and romantic about impromptu trips to the beach. It may be that the moments or hours before (depending on how many kids you have) are never filled with the excitement of making certain everyone has a towel, snack, drink, flip-flop or two.
My heart always blooms when a quick decision to alter from the plans end us up at the beach. The sea spray on my check and the rhythm of the crashing waves makes me feel like one with the earth. Glancing over at my son and I'm filled with happiness at the excitement and wonderment in his eyes as if it was the first time to enjoy the sand.
Today's trip proved to be the perfect retreat from the everyday ritual and has prepared us all for the days ahead.
Wishing you a very happy and refreshing Sunday.
