Thankful Thursdays: we love the ocean!

It’s funny. Since moving to our Boston neighborhood 4 years ago, one of the questions we get on a regular basis is if we like it here – and if we miss VA.

For sure, there are many things about the beautiful Blue Ridge Mts. that we miss. And of course, we miss all of the lovely people we left behind – especially our family. But we’ve come to love our new city too. A lot. Boston really does feel like home now.

One of the things that we love about being in Boston, especially our neighborhood, is that we are right by the water. Our house is literally just a couple of blocks away.

Being so close to the ocean, one of our favorite things to do as a family, is to take walks beside the water. And the girls oftentimes end up running around and playing in the sand. Even when it is cool outside!

For me, being near the ocean is like therapy. I love the smell of the salty air, the peace I feel when I am near the sea, and the couple of moments I can snag reading a book while the girls are distracted building forts in the sand ;).

So, today, I am thankful for the ocean.
