Beach Time




I really should be packing, really....but how could I resist one last post of some beach pictures from last year? I grew up in this town and have such wonderful memories of this place. Moving here from StLouis when I was 15, I couldn't believe how lucky we were. I've seen this beach while it's been snowing, during huricanes, after hurricanes, in 100 degree weather and in 40 degree weather. It is never the same and yet.....it is somehow.

When we come back for our annual beach visit, we get our fill of the Gulf Shrimp, Raw oysters, crawfish, crab (if we can catch them in Little Sabine) and fish. It's so yummy! It's home!

I pack books, journals, magazines, markers and paper. I grab my camaras and never take as many pictures as I hope to. Sometimes I just take everything in: the sights, sounds, smells, sun and sand. But I bring all this stuff because it's my security, my "just in case I need it".

It's a wonderful gift this vacation and I can never say or do enough to thank my Dad and Bonnie for making it happen.

Hi Eden - Those pictures really make me want to visit the beach now. There is something really beautiful and grand about where water meets sand. I find it one of the most relaxing places. Have a lovely time. :)

About Me

My Photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
