I am a wife, a mother, an auntie and a friend. I love thrifting, garage sales, re-purposing, creating, painting, anything that makes our little rental home more welcoming, comfortable and cozy. I have discovered the "art" of amateur photography & I love the idea of capturing the beauty in the ordinary everyday things that surround us. Blogging is a wonderful way to make new friends and share with people who have the same interests. My personal taste in decorating leans towards "casual cottage/coastal decor". I now have a small shop on etsy, called "SandySeashore" where you'll find some of my vintage finds, my photography and some handmade things. I hope you take the time to check it out! Thanks for droppin' in!

Back to reality but still in awe!

Back to reality.....but definitely still in AWE. The Caribbean Ocean and the Mayan Riviera are truly the most beautiful place in my world.  I say in my world, because I haven't travelled to a lot of places, so to be fair (lol) to other beautiful places, I'll say "my world".  No matter, the Ocean is what makes it so beautiful to me, so whatever your "most beautiful place is", it's yours to hold in your heart.

I just wanted to say "Hi" to everyone and show you some of my favorite photographs...

Once again, 
I find myself here, 
in this beautiful place,
watching the sun rise,
with a smile on my face
 I walk on her shore, 
enjoying sights and sounds, 
her waves gently crashing,
Tropical birds singing all around.

Softly She calls me,
I feel her breath on my skin,
I taste her saltiness on my lips,
and feel so content to be here again.

As I walk slowly, 
enjoying the peace,
I look down and see this
just by my feet,
a little castle right here in the sand
built by someone special
with tiny hands

 I lay in the warm sand,
to take this photo for you,
hoping you'll feel some of the warmth too.
A Father holds his daughter,
as he walks on in the sand,
 He sings her a lullaby,
In a language I don't understand
Tears fill my eyes,
As I can't help but cry
Remembering my own Dad,
and our special times.
My time here is amazing, 
It means so much to me,
I come here to replenish my soul,
and to recharge my battery.

It's my moment in time,
Where I just get to ``be``,
It`s the moment in time,
When She is just here for me.

I hope you enjoyed the early morning sunrise as much as I did!
