There’s just something about the beach: the warm air, the smell of the ocean, the feel of the sand between your toes. The second I take that first step onto the beach, I immediately feel relaxed. I feel at ease, my mind clearer, my worries suddenly put into perspective. I spend all winter dreaming of the warm weather and when summer comes, I can never get there enough. There’s work, the kids, the house ... the list is endless.
But this summer, I vowed to get to the beach more often. To feel the sand between my toes. To smell that wonderful ocean air. To relax. My husband and I took the kids every weekend, and during the week, I brought my laptop with me and worked, the ocean waves my only soundtrack.
