Its cold in Oklahoma. Its not as cold as Virginia can get, but man, this wind will just rip right through you. I am dearly missing warm weather. So, this is my ode to the beach. To the days we lived in sunny Florida, a 2 minute drive from a white sand, clear water beach. It was absolutely perfect, except for when the smell from the paper factory would whiff in over the bay and the stench would flood the air. Then all you wanted to do was puke. Haha, it really wasn't that bad and it didn't happen that often. We would walk for hours, collecting shells and throwing the baseball. I loved it. It was our first year of marriage and it was such a gift from the Lord.
