bring it

When the winter exchanges weather plans with spring, the beach beckons and we promptly answer.


There is nothing like the feeling of warm sand and ocean breezes in January.


As I watched my boys play, collect shells, and taunt the waves, an overwhelming feeling of joy made me certain the 2012 is sure to bring good things.


After our beach fun, we walked to the end of the pier together to eat.


I had one thought swirling through my brain as we walked hand in hand along the weathered pier.

Bring it.

Much love,

life rearranged

Isn't this weather amazing? Are we sure it is January? I agree. God has big plans for 2012. I can't wait to see His plan. Bring it on... like donkey kong! xoxo

gotta love california weather. i had a friend mention earlier that she saw kids running down the street to their house soaking wet. pretty cool that kids can swim at a friend's house during the "winter"! :) i'm super jealous that you're so close to the beach, though.

First of all, I'm jealous of the beach! Second, love how you framed them. Did you do that with Instagram or some othe program? Stopping by from the InstaFriday hop.

Warm one week, cold here the next. Crazy weather. Would so love to be on the beach! Adorable shots. Visiting from InstaFriday.

Oooh that first sentence is good stuff.
I can't imagine living within driving distance of the beach any month of the year. Like the names on all the pic's...nice touch.
