A dear friend blessed us with a night at a hotel on the beach, just this weekend after I returned home. This isn't something we could do for ourselves right now,
and the lavish generosity just made it that much sweeter.
I've been to beaches all over the country (and world!), and I can truly say that we have some of the best right here where we live.
It was a magical 24 hours of Tommy's Snoballs and pool playing and shell hunting and castle building. We got to watch the sunset and the sun rise, and they were both breathtaking. There were so many creatures out: everything from butterflies to man-o-wars to sea slugs.
Such a respite for our little fam.
