Michael and I just got back from a 4 day vacation in San Diego. The weather was absolutely perfect, and the beaches weren't too crowded--probably because we were there the week after Labor Day!
Moonlight Beach. Isn't that the coolest name?!
A few days before our vacation, I used Google to search for local events happening near the hotel we were staying at. The first event I found was the Super Tasty 5K: a 5K "race" near the beach that included sampling food from 17 restaurants along the way. You can bet we signed up for it! It was such a fun opportunity to discover some nearby restaurants, and a great way to enjoy the warm, sunny day!
Michael's first 5K! ;)
My favorite part of the trip was boogie boarding!! We were out in the water for hours.
We found a pink board for 50% off at Big 5 a few weeks ago, and Michael asked me if I wanted it. I have only boogie boarded once in my life -- while in girl scouts -- and I didn't remember if I actually liked it or not. I'm not much of a swimmer to begin with. I couldn't say no to 50% off though, and my husband said he'd teach me so I said eh, why not?
The cool ocean water felt amazing against my skin. It took me a few tries before I caught my first wave, but after that I was hooked! The waves pushed me over the water fast, and it was the most fun I've had in a long time! I made a silly little "Weekend Goal" to ride a wave allllll the way to the shoreline. I didn't get it the first day, but I did the next day--twice! It was a silly little personal goal, but it made me wonder what other "waves" in my life can I ride to the shore? What am I hesitant or afraid to try that might also make me feeling like I'm flying, if only I can will myself to take that first step--er, paddle?
I took a big step in a personal area of my life this week, and I can't wait to see where it takes me! Fingers crossed it brings me in all the way to shore. ;)
Have a great week! We're all in this together. :)
