Beach Bulletts

Have I ever mentioned how blessed I am to have married into a family that vacations in Maine every year? No, well I should. It is like being in a time space continuum when you get up here. It was COLD, ok, very chilly, our first morning. It was rainy. Then we woke up to gorgeous blue skies and great beach weather. Then we woke up completely socked in with fog - but it burned off, we hit the beach early.

Amazing to me that in August it can be so pleasant - and that we can find big shells and sea life around every corner. I love it. I find peace (after some family leaves and things settle down), I am able to think about what I want to do or change or be. I can enjoy my kids and kiss my husband knowing that he is off to do what he loves - fish.

I haven't started exercising as I told myself I would - so after dinner I am hitting the beach for a walk instead of going to the ice cream stand... even if it is the best ice cream stand ever.

I haven't blogged, I have twittered , but I haven't had much to say... and even as I started this it was to be bullets but turned into not being bullets, but maybe that is because my husband surprised me with a Swedish Massage at the Inn By The Sea that has me slightly turned to liquid form.

Regardless we are enjoying our trip, enjoying our family, and remembering how to relax.

My children-in-law married into a Disney family. Maybe not as tranquil as a beach vacation, but I've not heard any complaints! Traditions in families are so good for them. Yours sound lovely!
