Beach Inspiration

Last week my husband and I traveled to the coast to celebrate our 23rd anniversary. I don’t know what it is about the beach, but I just love being there and get antsy to return when we haven’t been in a while. The sunshine, the sand, the waves…it heals my soul and boosts my spirit…

DSC_0032…as we start up the boardwalk for the first time after arriving, I feel like a kid again…so much anticipation…

DSC_0039…and then pure excitement at the first sight of the water…

Reminded me of these beach inspired florals and photos…
