Any time is better than no time & yet no visit is ever really long enough. Love this little man with my whole heart.

Y'all, three years ago I was falling in love with Southern California for the first time. Now I live here. Never underestimate what amazing things He may have in store for your life. .
I didn't know it at the time, but I left a piece of my heart here three years ago. So moving here has felt like more of a homecoming than a starting over. And for that, I am grateful.

One of my new favorite hobbies is getting to the beach early on the weekend mornings & watching the surfers. It's always a reminder of the power of resilience, & that resilience isn't built without some falling down.

"He brought me into a spacious place..."
.
That was my heart's deepest longing from the moment I discovered those words this past June. And if this isn't a spacious place, y'all, I don't know what ever will be.

Horribly wind blown hair couldn't keep me from posting this photo. .
Lifers are the best kind of friends. And both of these guys, whether they like it or not, are stuck with me for life. .
I'm continually amazed at how life has a way of leading us back to people we love dearly. In different seasons, different states, & different places, but back together...eventually...nonetheless.

"Some dreams stay with you forever
Drag you 'round & lead you back to where you were
Some dreams keep on getting better 
Gotta keep believing if you wanna know for sure...
Keep on dreaming even if it breaks your heart..." .
.
That risk is what life is all about y'all. Will you keep believing for something greater? I won't tell you that's always easy, but I will tell you it's always worth it.
.
.
I'm reminded of that every single time someone asks me my story. It's a story of believing for dreams I didn't know I had, things I couldn't see clearly, couldn't articulate, but He knew. My heart had known what it felt like to be fully alive, and once you feel that, you'll never be content with anything else.

To sit and watch the sun 
Sink into the ocean
Is to breathe out the day
And lean into the hope of a new tomorrow

Them: "Do you miss Nashville?"
.

Me: "Nope. Not a bit."
.

But, is there really any wonder why? After work tonight I drove the 2.3 miles down to the pier & walked 4 miles along the ocean.
