Sand or Snow

IMG_1220Good Morning! I love the feeling of white sand in the early morning running through my fingers.  It always takes me back to the feeling of walking on the beach in the early morning, watching the spectacular light show of the new sun rising.

It's so cold outside where I am today, (Iowa) and we just a ton of snow dumped on us.  But my jar of white sand from St. Petersburg, Florida, is always there for me.  It's such a beautiful way for my my senses to connect with the feelings and memories of a warm beach, filled with white ocean sand.

I realize now, more than ever, that I must connect with nature every single day – and I know this about myself.

Even if it means walking in the beautiful, white blanket of snow in Iowa.
