There is just something so therapeutic about the beach that I love so much. It's a combination of hearing the waves splash so calmly onto the shore, watching the seagulls in the distance, the smell of salt water in the air... I could go on and on. It is a place I like to go to take a moment to just breath and relax, to watch the water flow back and forth, feel the cool sand between my toes, and shriek just a little when the cold water splashes on my legs. Life can be so stressful and we get caught in our everyday busy lifestyles but somehow, as soon as I step foot onto the beach all my worries diminish. I have childhood memories of spending every weekend of the summer on the beach with my family and memories of saying my vows to my husband on a cliff overlooking the ocean just a few years ago. It is indeed my happy place.
This California girl definitely loves the beach no matter the season. Cozy fall days at the beach are attainable by throwing on a comfy open front cardigan over my white t-shirt and reaching for my taupe booties instead of my usual summer sandals.
This week, I encourage you all to go to your happy place and take a second to just breath, relax, and enjoy yourself before stepping back into your daily routines.
