July July!


For the month of July I set one simple goal. . .  to get in the ocean everyday.

The salt water has a way of making everything better, a way of effortlessly cleansing my mind, body and soul.  I am instantly humbled by the vastness and power that the ocean holds.  All my problems wash away, or at least feel a bit smaller than they were.

Getting in the ocean everyday has made me so much more happy.  It makes me feel beyond blessed for everything I have.  I could be anywhere in the world, but for some lucky reason, I am here, now and couldn’t ask for anything more.


My favorite beach.

I have been wanting to watch the sunrise for a little bit now, but can never seem to wake up early enough.  Today though I made it a point.  I woke up at 5am, grabbed a coffee and headed out.  I was not disappointed. . .


The sun starting to make its way to the horizon.

Glistening sand.


Greeting the day in a beautiful way.
