This is what I need!
This! This beach!
We didn't get to go this year and next years trip will remain up in the air for several months yet. Let's just say we'll be lucky to find a way to go next year. I try not to think about that too much as there are several factors way beyond my control.
That doesn't stop me from missing what we missed. The beach trip makes the nonstop schedule we live with worthwhile. It brings balance, and perspective. There is nothing better than waking up to the sunrise - drinking coffee on the deck and watching night creep away.
I find I've been thinking about the beach a lot lately. Trying not to be too sad and trying not to worry too much about next year. I remind myself that the next time we go will be even sweeter - that the absence will definitely make the heart grow fonder.
I know I'm right but that doesn't help much.
