this saturday i'm grateful for beaches

I'm a later in life beach baby. I loved swimming and beaches as a child, but couldnt have been more disinterested in the beach as a teenager and early adult (probably influenced by my goth phase LOL). But in the last few years, I cant get enough of the beach and luckily Little B is just the same :-) So this Saturday after a few days of sunshine, I'm grateful for...

* the beach - we've wiled away quite a few hours at the beach the last few days. It's weird but we live up amongst the trees & ranges near a national park but it's only a 30 min drive to the beach!! Bonus!!

* friends - I've had the pleasure of catching up with a few besties this week and there's nothing better than having someone to dissect your life with and have them be supportive.

* dads - Mr B is simply a fab dad and I have loved watching him grow in this role. He impresses me with his patience, his thoughtfulness, his protectiveness, his advice and his ability to remember what pretend character we built out of Lego last night xxx

Checkout The Beetle Shack, where Emily is hosting grateful loveliness this week..

  3. Hi Mrs B! what a lovely post. I've been reading your blog for a while now, this is the first time I have added a comment but wanted to let you know that it's a really good read!

    I feel the same about the beach - you've reminded me just how good it can be at any time of year. I love the feel of sand between my toes!! You are so lucky to have local besties... I left mine behind when we emigrated here 2 years ago and I have yet to make new ones. Hope you have a great week!!
