Life is a gift...

"Life itself is a gift. It's a compliment just being born: to feel, breathe, think, play, dance, sing, work, for this particular lifetime." ~ Daphne Rose Kingma

Our gift this weekend was getting to go back to the beach. We left at the end of August and usually we don't get to go back until sometime in June, but on Saturday we were able to squeeze in a quick trip. As much as I love the beach during the summer, there was something special about being there in November.
It was quiet and peaceful.
There was something magical about the light.
The sand was darker, the ocean bluer, the shells more plentiful.
We felt more free and more alive.
We were silly.
We laughed.
We played.
What a gift!
What are some of the gifts in your life right now?


  1. We love the shore/beach on the off season so much more than during the summer. Like you said, quiet and peaceful!

  2. Lovely shot! I too love an autumn trip to the beach - it feels so much simpler somehow.

  3. Great photo! What a lovely gift. Right now I feel like it's been a gift that life is slowing down a bit and I can do more crafting.
