This makes me sad even as I type this…many days I don’t see the beach even though we live a few miles from it : (
I hate it when life gets so busy or I keep adding to my to do list without appreciating the beauty right down the road from me.
So today I am picking my son up from school with his suit in the car and our new puppy.
It will be Romeo’s first time at the beach and I can hardly wait to see what he thinks : )
I asked my son ” What if he digs to China ? We will have to go get him!”
That made my son crack up.
He’s at that great age where Mom is funny and not yet silly or annoying.
For those days I can’t make it down the road I made this table decor to remind me of the peaceful feeling I always get at the beach.
It fits right in with the beach theme I have in my familyroom.
I even found a tiny starfish to put on the beach : )
If you want to make one too:
The bowl is from Hobby Lobby.
The sandcastle and jar of shell bits I found at Petco in the fish section.
I added a little sand on the bottom before putting the shell layer in.
You can add any tiny treasures you find on your trip to the beach!
I wasn’t born at the beach, but I got here as fast as I could.
