The Ocean

Growing up in New England, I've spent a lot of time on the beach. Building sand castles. Rolling in the sand. Making childhood memories last forever. Since moving to Maine three years ago, I have made sure our children have had the same chances to make childhood memories at the beach. There is just something about sandy toes and salty kisses from my girls that I just love so much.

Living just a short two miles from several beaches, our girls have grown to love and adore the beach. Building sand castles, catching hermit crabs on the shore, making sand angels and eating too many peanut butter & fluff sandwiches to count. Kevin and I are true water lovers so watching the joy on our children's faces as they develop a love for the water just makes Kevin and I excited for our future together as a family.

Moving away from the open water and ocean air later this summer is something I do not look forward to. While we will have access to a pool, it just isn't the same as spending the day at the beach. The salty air just does something a pool cannot. I love watching our girls make new friends and use their imagination as they build castles in the sand. Until we move, I have promised myself to spend as much time at the beach as humanly possible. This past week, we spent five lovely days at the beach. Building sand castles, playing with friends, collecting hermit crabs, and for Clara, exploring the beach, n aked. Yes, n aked.

I love the many memories the ocean has made for me in my life and I look forward to making even more memories with our sweet children. Here's to life with an abundance of sandy toes and salty kisses...
