A Day at The Beach

{Photo by me from my walk ©09.21.2010}

any of you keep sending me emails and inquiring how the hubs and I are settling in. We are settling is the best answer I have for you. Most of all we are attempting to mingle and become locals, and plant some firm roots here. We were in transient mode for so long that no place ever really felt like "home". We want Santa Rosa Beach to be home, forever for all I am concerned.

I always dreamed of living here along the Gulf ever since I can remember, and this dream well still feels like a dream. It still has not quite set in just yet for the hubs or me that we actually live here, not vacation here but live here. I keep waiting for the moment it sets in.

I thought that moment might come yesterday, however it did not. I went for a long walk on the beach before a lunch meeting I had. It was just one of those morning where I had worked on a problem all morning that had continued on from the day before, so frustration had set in deeply. I walked to clear my mind and try to relax a bit. As I walked I did relax, I became less irritated about the issue and a calmness set in. But that I think was all in part because I suddenly felt like I was on vacation. Yes, vacation mode set in as I stared at the clear water and white sand. So all I can say folks, is here is to never going back and always being "on vacation". Who cares if it never sets in that we really live here if moments like today help me keep my sanity.
