This just might be my favorite blog post of yours ever :-) So fun to get a new glimpse into your life with each favorite thing.

<3 <3 <3 for being inches from the stage at concerts and for wonderful road trips. My favorite, though: "high tide in ft walton beach florida brings back the smell of the sand and ocean and the feel of sunburned cheeks." I've never been to Florida, but the way you wrote that made me feel like I was right there with you!
