About Me

day full of simple pleasures
~the warm breath of my husband and a morning hug
~hot strong coffee
~morning fog creeping down the street
~the plants swishing in the mild breeze
~the hardwood floors on my bare feet
~morning doves cooing on my neighbors roof
~the smell of low tide in the air
~the sound of waves crashing
~bike riders intense energy as they pedal past my house
~peace of knowing I am lucky to have good health
~after glancing at the newspaper~happy I don't live in a country fighting a war
~plenty of healthy food choices and drinkable water
~seagulls screaming in the distance
~bare footed teenagers in wetsuits run past my house towards the Ocean carrying surfboards
I have only been awake for an hour and I am in such an excellent mood. I live with awareness of all I am blessed with~off to the beach soon to soak up more! sun, wind, salty air, poppies dancing in the garden, dolphins playing in the surf, sand crabs burying themselves after each wave, surfers and paddle boarders ride the waves.

I am going to run on the sand~I love life it is amazing~so happy I don't have to work today!

after my run

~super foggy
~high tide, SW swell fishermen and runners, walkers,bikers, skateboarders, scuba divers, Dolphins, gull, pelicans, rosemary, lemon blossoms
~Ran 7 miles in 1 hour and 30 mins. cool fog, sweet energy found at the beach this morning
~baking chocolate chip+oatmeal cookies aroma is intoxicating!
~happy to be a Mommy.... lucky 2 of my 3 kids are home
~tri tip roast slowly roasting with last summer's tomato sauce
~love my neighborhood, sweetest people live next to me!
