A few of my favorite things ~

Sea Anemones

I love the ocean. I feel at home and I can spend the entire day here. You have to literally pull me away. I like to walk on the beach and feel the sand between my toes. I can sit just watching for hours and love to feel the coast wind blow a misty kiss on my face and how it makes my hair dance. I love the lullaby that the waves sing to me when I close my eyes to sleep. I like to to check out the tide pools and peak under rocks to see what is living down underneath. I will always walk away in awe and amazement in the beauty of how everything flows in this great big grand scheme of things and the wonder of it all.
Now, let me introduce you to my daughter Diandra. I love this girl with my whole heart and everything that I am, want to be and more. She amazes me and I find myself wondering... did she really come from me? I am so proud of her!
I love you my baby girl!!


  1. O! Angela Marie! I LOVE the ocean too and really have to travel some 7 hours to get to a beach!!! The ocean is really calling my name this year though! I'll go meet that sweet Diandra now! Happy Monday! Come sign up for a prize! hehe xo, Cinda

  2. So beautiful Angela....I don't get to the ocean enough! Love this post!

  3. Angela, first of all, thank you so much for guiding me to your daughter's blog. There was a post there that I very much needed to read, so you and Diandra were both blessings to me today. I know I will come back to her place again!

    I loved the ocean photographs. Being at the beach is paradise to me! I often dream of being able to live or retire there. The sounds of wind and surf, the primal scents of saltwater and marine life, the muted blues-grays-greens-browns, the rhythm of the tides pulling and pushing, not to mention the sheer playfulness of building sandcastles, jumping waves, discovering beautiful shells, and watching little digger clams burrow out of sight...oh I do love the beach! You gave me a mini-vacation!

  4. Your pics are gorgeous.
    I will make a point of visiting your daughter, after all, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree!!!

  5. I love the we don;t have an ocean here :)

    Although, I have been at the most southern point of Africa: where the two oceans meet. That was a wonderful experience.

    I'm going to check out the blog of Diandra later today. Work calls :)

    Have a wonderful day!

    XO Sophie

  6. Ahhhh, the sea and all we see.....

  7. I too love the ocean as you can tell from looking at my blog. Love readng your blog since findng it.

  8. Ohhhhhh...the ocean. How I miss the ocean and everything that goes with it. I moved from Boston to Austin back in 2005. I miss gulls circling our house (6 miles inland). I miss the smell of the ocean. I miss the beaches. At least Austin has some gorgeous lakes. But this post reminds me of how I miss the ocean.

  9. hehe! Of course I came from you! Where else could I have come from!! Silly willy..
