we love it here.


We have only been here a few days and we already love it so much. 
The weather is gorgeous. It’s good for the soul. 
Especially a hurting soul like mine. 
I have always thought I was made to live near a beach and the past few days are proving me right…California is fabulous :).

    SO ADORABLE as always!!! I'm a little jealous though. I would LOVE to be cooler weather by a beach, instead of baking in this 100+ degrees we have going on here in TX!! Enjoy it girl!!

I just wanted to let you know about a friend of mine that went through a similar loss to you … she has written about it here – ( … check out the April issue.

    Living by the beach is amazing. Not only is the scenery beautiful but it wears out the kids in the best way possible.

    How did I miss this post?? I totally agree with you Mama! The beach is fabulous and it soothes the soul! I was raised on the Oregon coast and can distinctly remember waking up early some mornings and going out on the misty beach for sunrise…it was awe inspiring and takes your breath away! So happy that you guys can have this experience and can't wait to meet you!
