My Happy Place

My favorite place in the world to be is at the beach. 
It always has been and always will be!
 The sound of the waves, 
the smell of the ocean, 
the sand in my toes, 
the colors of the ocean depending on how the light hits it,
 I could go on and on. 


I love that my girls seem to enjoy it as much as I do and it is something we share together.

There is nothing better than watching them both run around wild and free with the beautiful backdrop of the ocean all around them.

I dream of living near the ocean one day, being able to take a short walk from our front door to somewhere so amazing sounds like a dream come true.
Wouldn't it be nice to wake up to this every morning?

For now I will have to live with packing up the car and taking a drive instead.
I will not complain too much because I am lucky just to be able to live somewhat close to somewhere so gorgeous!

I hope for many more trips to my happy place as Summer rolls around.

Hoping you all get a chance to visit your happy place soon and all of you Mother's enjoy a wonderful Mother's Day Weekend!

I love the beach too! For now I have to settle for lakes instead of the ocean, but someday I would love to live near the ocean!!!!

Happy Mother's Day to you!

I love the beach as well. We are about 2hrs from the beach but it is the cold Northern Ca. waters. I always tell my husband when we retire we are moving close to the ocean. For Mother's Day I asked for a light blue beach cruiser.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day and enjoy your cute little kiddos.

The BE comes standard with painted wheels and front and rear fenders and the white/grey version has painted spokes too, giving it a very clean and classy look.
