Newport Beach

Early October we all headed west to Newport Beach.  Jordan's family stays in a beach house there every year and we haven't been able to go for a few years so we were beyond excited.  

We stepped out of the Uber car and onto the beach and I immediately smiled because of the smell of the ocean.  There is something I love so much about the beach that I never seem able to put into proper words.  You know that feeling you get when you are high up on a mountain looking down at the valley and you think for a moment how small and insignificant your troubles are?.  That the world is so large and grand... that your trials and life are but a fleeting moment?  The beach does that for me too.  I feel free, a little less weighed down... and happy.
