Taking a deep breath before the rush.

 I'm grateful to live near the ocean.

It's comforting to go there,
when I have things on my mind.

Mom doesn't get the chance to visit often,
so we made a day of it.

Always happy to find a heart shaped rock.

Enjoying the last of fall,
with winter on it's heels.
I can't believe Thanksgiving
is already behind us,
with Christmas bearing down,
like a freight train.
