RE-Connecting…back from vacation & hello Fall

Oregon CoastI just returned from travelling up the coast from San Francisco, California through Oregon and ending up in Seattle.

Within the first hour or so of driving, we were hopping in and out of the car at almost every turn to take pictures – the scenery was absolutely beautiful!

To me especially, I loved being near the ocean along the drive which took us days.  Growing up as a swimmer I have always had an affinity for water; I grew up going to summer camp which involved taking canoes everywhere we went and I went with my family to our cottage most summers as well, right on the lake.

I love being near water, I find it calming and soothing, almost magical in a way – I could listen to waves crash against the shores forever.

Now that I’ve returned from the trip, I’ve realized the drive along the water re-inspired me – I need to be near it more often than not – I need to walk on the sand, feel the water rush up against my toes.  It is my happy place.

It’s given me a spark again.

It’s also perfect timing as we transition from summer into fall; a new season brings new dreams and aspirations, I can’t wait to share with you fresh ideas and stories moving forward.

What inspires you? Is there a place you just HAVE TO travel to that reinvigorates you? We can’t wait to hear from you.

Until next time,
Jess
