Hey hey, I’m gonna post on a Thursday. Go me!
2. Write a blog post inspired by the word: sunkissed
There’s something very ethereal about the smell after you’ve been to the beach. It’s a combination of sunscreen, the salt water, sand, and the way the sun has touched your skin.
About three years ago, I remember we went to the beach all day with a friend and his daughter. We had been drinking most of the day and once we came home and put the kids to bed (it was late) my husband and I promptly fell into bed. I hadn’t even showered. I remember how intoxicating the smell was; how sunkissed my skin smelled and felt. This memory has stuck with me like so many sensory moments. Smell plays such a huge part in my reminiscing. I have yet to replicate the exact way things smelled that way but I guess that’s what makes that day special.
I spent a huge amount of time looking for an image that exemplified this feeling but no one image would suffice. I have a Pinterest board for all my beach stuff and you can see it here: BEACH DREAMS.
By tomorrow afternoon, we’ll be on Daytona Beach. Our hotel is right on the ocean and I am finally allowing myself to get excited. It’s been a long week and I have a lot to do before I even get to the beach. But now that I have written about this memory and how the beach makes me feel, I cannot wait!
