Where’s that place you go to in your head when you’re bored, can’t sleep, feel stressed, or just need a mental vacation? My happy place is most definitely the beach. It’s not just the salty air, the roar of the waves, or the surf and sand on my feet that makes me crave the shore. It’s the entire experience of being in a coastal town. I love the architecture, the décor, the casual clothing, the seafood, the artsy shops, and the locals, but most of all, I love the attitude of relaxation that seems to exist in a town by the sea.
Here in about six or seven years, my husband and I will be able to fulfill our goal of moving to the Outer Banks. In the meantime, I have lots of other goals to complete here in my waveless, sandless little corner of the world. That doesn’t mean that I can’t have lots of reminders of my favorite place surrounding me. Last night, I decided to do a little blog redecoration. I decided that my “Cakes” header is entirely counterproductive as I strive to lose a few more pounds and maintain a healthy weight. I thought my online space needed a little touch of shore life, too. I took the header picture in Kill Devil Hills, NC and the mermaids in the background certainly seem to disappearing!
Speaking of disappearing—it’s time for me to head to the gym! 🙂
Have a great day, everyone!!
Where’s your happy place?
