Tonight I watched the sunset from the Santa Monica pier. The past week has been really rainy, but it cleared up today to leave us with a gorgeous view. I could see clear across the bay to Catalina Island and beyond. The pier was jam packed at sunset, yet strangely quiet. Everyone was mesmerized by the orange sun sinking into the navy blue water and the only sound was a violinist performing a hauntingly beautiful tune. I felt a sense of camaraderie with the crowd, as if we were all silently asking each other, “How did we get so lucky to live in a place like this?”
I hope you are able find beauty around you this long weekend friends. Have a good one.
Hello friends, I hope you are enjoying a slow Saturday morning, sipping coffee and watching cartoons (do people still do that? I hope they do)! I’m taking my sweet time this weekend after a crazy busy week of school, work and rushing for a sorority!
Last night was my definition of a perfect Friday night. No, it didn’t include any wild toga parties or big adventures, but it was just what I needed. A friend and I ate dinner at Chipotle, grabbed McFlurries at McDonalds, and headed to the beach to watch the sunset (pictured above). There’s something about being near the ocean that makes for good conversation, don’t you agree? Then we went back to my house and sat on my balcony laughing and talking for a long while. It was chicken soup for the soul, a deep breath, a moment to reset.
What are your weekend plans? Can you believe it’s almost October? I sure can’t. The holidays will be upon us before we know it! Have a good (relaxing) one friends.
