Ten reasons I'm glad I'll be at the beach a week from now

  1. A reason to wear a hoodie... I get tired of tank tops and shorts all summer long. I love that it's cool and crisp at the beach in the morning and I need to pull on a sweatshirt.
  2. Asia's long morning walks - every day when we're at the beach house, Asia gets up early and goes for a walk into town. Sometimes I get up and go with him, and sometimes I roll over and am thankful that I can sleep for another half hour.
  3. I always save up my magazines for about a month before we go to the beach... it's so fun to finally get to pull them out and read them.
  4. Sharing a pot of coffee with my brother each morning...
  5. Watching the kids play. No matter how old they get, when you combine water and rocks and sand, the kids play. And play. And play.
  6. S'mores.
  7. Day trips... my brother is really good at finding fun things for us to do together. The Oregon Coast is full of so many fun places to go.
  8. The yellow bedroom Asia and I share is so happy...
  9. Sharing meals. I love cooking for people - and I love cooking at the beach house, with the window open and the breeze blowing.
  10. The inexplicable way the sound of the waves and the breeze and the sand and the majesty of the ocean feed my soul. I'm a beach girl at heart.
