time in a bottle...

If I could save time in a bottle, the first thing that I'd like to do...

 ~I do try to save everyday like a treasure~ here's a glimpse of some Nauset Beach sand that we scooped up on a visit.  It's a treasure to us.  I love having it nearby!  

Was there a moment that you treasured today?  I treasured my son getting a new pair of sneakers today - oh my his feet have grown so fast - and watching him wear them ALL afternoon around the house.  As soon as he hopped out of the tub, his new sneaks went right back on.  The little things put such a smile on my face - I love my little man!!  :)

seeing blue

I've been seeing a lot of blue lately~ maybe the cold weather is finally getting me down...Well, my collection of blue bottles perked me up the other day.  I moved them to a sunny spot in the dining room & am enjoying them much more.  They're different hues remind me of the many colors of the ocean.  Find something that makes you smile today!

fishing pier

~We had so much fun exploring both old & new finds at the Cape this past weekend...we walked Main St. in Chatham, went out for breakfast, poked through a Thrift Shop, shook hands with a photographer (we've always admired his work, but never met him in person), visited the Candy Shop (& of course, bought some candy), stopped by the fish pier, and walked a couple of our favorite beaches.

~We'll be back again, Cape Cod.  Hopefully our next visit will be a little bit warmer...
and maybe a little longer!!

there's nothing like ocean air...

There's nothing in the world like breathing in ocean air to rejuvenate the soul~ and we needed it!!  Next time, we'll stay for more than one night...but it was sooooooooooooo worth the drive!  Family time on Cape Cod...
Where do you go to renew your spirit?  It's an amazing feeling to have such a special place to go to!!

have a little faith

I LOVE beach rocks!  They're in my dining room (like these), in my planters, on my nightstand, and scattered in my gardens.  They remind me often of my happiest place on earth!  I need to collect more rocks on our next visit to the Cape - I can never have enough.  I believe "one is closer to God at the ocean than anywhere else on earth..." It's time to take a road trip!!

missing the beach...

"Patience, patience, patience, is what the sea teaches. 
Patience & faith. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach- waiting for a gift from the sea." ~Anne Morrow Lindbergh

We are missing the sea immensely, and need to get there for a visit to simply breathe in the ocean air.  We promise to roam Main St. in Chatham soon, and throw a rock in Nauset.  We're coming Cape Cod, we promise!!
