have i mentioned my latest addiction of searching for sea glass? all of these were found today while john and i strolled along San Fran’s Baker Beach. mostly green, but a few blue, clear, and amber mixed in, too. they are stunning to me, all gathered and sparkly. it is such a relaxing pastime, the sounds of the birds and the ocean in the background, bella ahead of us chasing her sticks, and the two of us searching together, side by side for little beauties of the ocean.
today, our relationship is 8 years young. we celebrated this morning with our walk on the beach, a slow driving tour through golden gate park, morning tea & coffee, chocolate donuts, and long winded conversations while we reminisced about our beginning 8 years ago. we were just 23 and he was 24, such babies! 3 months after our first date, we left florida and moved to portland (a move that i had already been planning). i’m surprised our parents didn’t have joint heart attacks! but it was a great match, and still is. like the sea glass above, we’ve been on a adventure these past 8 years, tumbling together through the ebbs and flows of life, making us softer, more beautiful in time.
