morning walk

morning walks with my mom are my favorite.
the sand beneath my toes, salt air, and white sugary shores of Florida serve as a pretty spectacular backdrop too.  
i have a lot to learn from my momma.
  as i’ve never met a more grateful, giving, or sweeter human being.
she’s also the best listener. period.
love you mom.
thanks for the endless giggles, advice, lessons, and ya know – giving birth to me.

    Beautiful pictures. My mom and I don't talk, unfortunately. It's hard for me, but I find strength and hope in my dad. I also remind myself how lucky I am to have a close knit family consisting of two very loud and loving aunts. They are the greatest teachers and I have a log to learn from them as well 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

    My mom and I always have the best talks when we are about to part, when she's dropping me off at the airport or unpacking me at school she magically remembers all these stories she has been holding back!

    The foot picture in the water is so fun! I love my mom too. I miss her. She lives in the midwest now and I only get to see her 3 to 5 times a year =( So sad.

    Walks with mumsies are THE BEST! Looks like you have a beautiful location to walk at, too, although if I'm compleeetely honest…lol…after having grown up in florida, I prefer my North Carolina mountains to beaches any day! 😀 Crisp cold air and turning leaves beats humidity HANDS DOWN. 😉

    These are sort of some of my favorite photos from you. They FEEL like florida. Is that strange?

    Also. I love moms. Wish I was closer to mine.. but darn that woman she won't change her whole life just to move to LA for me. It's not like I'm asking that much..

    Hope you are having a great week!

    Those are sweet words for your Mom.
    Love the pictures that go with it as well.
    And I got a little envious of you saying how you had your feet in the sand.
    Well, I did have my shoes in the sand today. But that was because of a sandbox. Not exactly the same thing.
