Back From the Beach

This has been one of the most amazing weeks that has brought me back from the land of depression. We had a fabulous trip to the beach- even though it was pretty cold. Watching Ella see the beach for the first time as a child (the last time she went she was 18 mo.) was the best thing in the world. The pure beauty of her running down the beach, kicking sand, chasing birds, and making sand angels was priceless. Then we had a day filled with seeing old friends and their children. We walked around a huge park, went to the NC aquarium, and got to see a mini ballet. It was tiring, but sooo much fun.

And now to the big news... The next day Ella got to see her father for the first time in almost 3 years. Which turned out to be a really good thing. It truly has been one of the best weeks of Ella's and my life. :) So I'm fully back in high spirits! And not to mention today we got a little bit of snow. We got to see the beach and snow plus being reunited with friends and family in one week... doesn't get much better than this.

  2. Charbit sent me your pictures! It looks like you had so much fun! It is good to hear that some old wounds were healed. I cannot imagine what it was like. I love you so much and want all the good in the world for you! Youre my buddy!

  3. That is a beautiful picture of your daughter on the beach! The shadow under her and her arms out stretched, love it!


  4. I agree with #4, Ella on the beach is a fantastic pic. (Love to see her playing in the snow too.)
