We are so lucky to be within walking distance to a lovely sandy beach on the shores of Lake Michigan. My children have grown up with frequent trips to our beach, combing the sand for sea glass and heart shaped rocks. They used to refer to our lake as an ocean, which is quite understandable since you can't see the land on the other side. I am always amazed at how even a short visit to the beach feels like a vacation, an escape, and we are minutes from home.

Hi Linda!! Thanks for leaving a sweet comment on my blog! I am so jealous of you living by the ocean! It's my dream to live in a cute cottage by the ocean and to have a rose garden, too! The last post was so funny about your shopping nightmares! I have had very similar dreams!! LOL!! I'm off to read more of your blog. Very nice to "meet" you! Oh, and I love your cute doll icon- so similar to mine!
