Ocean and I have spent a lot of time together this year. No coincidence since it’s been a stressful year and Ocean happens to live at one of my most favorite of happy places. Last week, I visited Ocean again.
I had forgotten what a letdown the days after meeting a huge challenge/goal can be.

Seeing how busy the calendar was going to get soon (at work, blech), I decided that respite (and reward!) by the sea was required.

Happy birthday to me!
