The girls and I have been fortunate enough to spend the past four weeks staying in a townhouse on Pensacola beach, enjoying the sun, sand, and surf. My husband has been attending a training school up in Alabama and spends the weekends down here with us to soak in life. We've had wonderful weather almost the entire time we've been here and have created so many fun and lasting memories. We got my oldest daughter her first big girl bike and she rides it around the beach roads every day. My youngest daughter has discovered a passion for feathers and will spend upwards of an hour creating feathery forts in the sand. I've enjoyed walking on the shore at sunrise, either drinking in the first rays of of the day or letting my thoughts drift into the shrouds of fog over the waves. We'll be returning to Oklahoma this weekend, but the ocean never leaves my blood.
