So my family and I had to make a quick trip to Florida
this past week-end. We have never been to
Florida nor have we ever been to the beach there.
So off we go on a 15 hour drive from
Oklahoma to Florida......
My kids are older so it did make it a little easier.
But like I said before, it was a quick trip.
We left out Thursday evening and drove
for 6 hours and then stayed in a hotel.
In the morning we drove the rest of the way and
did what we needed to do. We did take the
time to go to the beach for about an hour. I know
it wasn't long, but sadly we had to get back home.
But while we were there, I was taken
in by the beach, the sun and the ocean..
The simple waves that came across on the shore
and the peace that I felt.
Even through the hussle and bussle of
Panama City Beach, I still felt that peace
while I sat and watched the waves and
the beautiful colors of the sea. Thinking
to myself, how this large body of water
was created by a wonderful God.
I now have an understanding for those who
live on the beach in their cottages.
I wish I was one of those people.
I love Oklahoma and how we are a
slower pace kinda state.
I love how friendly everyone is here and the
only thing we have to tackle is tornadoes.
Now, I know that scares some of you but
really it's not that bad. And yes
we still say, "Come on back ya'll".
But come on... How could you not want to live
on the beach and hear the waves and feel
the peace that comes with it.
It will always be a dream of mine to live
on the beach in the cutest little cottage.
For now though, I will finish raising my kids
and run to the tornado shelter when needed.
I will be taking some more pictures tonight
from the Ugly Yellow House.
We now have half of the kitchen cabinets up
and the tile guy came and layed the tile
this past week-end while we were in Florida.
So, I will be posting them soon.
