I've been meaning to share these pictures for a while. The week before Isaac's birth, we went to the beach late one afternoon. The sea is where I feel most calm, grounded, centered. Being there, knowing my baby was coming at any time, was so beautiful for me. It felt so good. Lighter- both physically and mentally- in that late stage of pregnancy that can feel anything but light. Then, a few weeks ago, we went again. Same beach, now with Isaac on the outside. I showed him the ocean for the first time. It made my heart so happy.

The sea is on my mind today. I feel a strong need for that peace and vastness, that quiet roar.

soon, soon.
