here we are, on the beach
Greetings from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina! We are wrapping up a little family visit with some ocean-front quality time. The photo you see above is from last night, when we went for a sunset walk - the kind where the ocean felt like bath water on our toes & the sky was pink & then orange & then navy & then black. Today, after we make a couple of deposits at the airport, we'll be headed back to Wilmington for a day of lying on the couch & watching One Tree Hill. Oh, & maybe some laundry, too. And definitely some Chipotle for dinner. Because, Chipotle Sunday. Obviously.
C U R R E N T L Y . . .
R E A D I N G has been put on hold recently. So much LIFE has been happening. We've had visitors since the last week of June, & I've been trying to give my undivided attention, to be really present. It has been wonderful.
W R I T I N G has been an afterthought, too. And it's the writing that I've really missed the most. Thoughts have been bouncing around in my head, though, of course. And I hope to soon turn them into blog posts. Or perhaps diary entries. Or perhaps both.
L I S T E N I N G to fireworks echoing off the ocean last night was a treat. Especially from our room on the sixteenth floor.
T H I N K I N G that things often turn out much better than you think they will. If only I could stop worrying. If only I could just relax & enjoy & savor.
S M E L L I N G perfumes at Banana Republic yielded a new obsession of mine: Rosewood . I must have it. I must. Hopefully soon.
W I S H I N G I only needed about four hours of sleep per night.
H O P I N G for safe, smooth travels back to Wilmington today for us, as well as safe travels back to Shreveport today for our guests.
W E A R I N G my new duds soon, I hope. I got two striped sleeveless blouses from Nautica, a striped dress from Banana Republic, & a pair of green flats. School clothes, but also clothes that can be worn anytime.
L O V I N G family. And that my mom liked her birthday gift from us. And life.
W A N T I N G the most relaxing day today.
N E E D I N G to do laundry & to clean the house this week.
F E E L I N G very sleepy. Surprise, surprise. I'll have a different answer next week, I hope.
