life is good today.

My toes sink between the sand as the hot Southern California sun breaths down my sweater. I closed my eyes and let the sun fill up my soul. Behind me, palm trees reach the sky and they dance back and forth against the ocean breeze. We were spending Thanksgiving weekend in one of my favorite…
