the weekend. sunday

February 09 2014 096

Lily was around three months old when Will and i first dipped her tiny baby toes in the ocean

she loved it

from that moment on, because we lived in southbeach and the beach was within walking distance, she and i spent many mornings, early and late afternoons at the beach

many weekends were also spent at the beach as a family and with friends

i am not sure if it was all the swimming i did while she was in my belly or, the fact that Lily is a water sign (scorpio) but, she loves the water

she loves the pool, yes

but she really (really, really, really) loves the beach and the ocean

since moving across the water from where we lived and since Lily started school, the beach is no longer a place we regularly visit

not like we used to

two sundays ago, because winter was acting like summer again, even though we were all tired from a very late chinese new years eve party the night before, we stuck with our beach plans and we went

it felt good to be at the beach

but mostly, it felt good to see Lily’s big smile and her happiest truest self while at the beach swimming in the ocean

happy monday friends

hope you all had a great weekend
