02. Friday Photo Challenge: “Reward” – A Day at the Beach

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Reward.”

“The cure for anything is salt water – sweat, tears or the sea” – Karen Blixen

The first thing that comes to mind when I hear the word “reward” is money, like bounty hunter rewards or allowance for doing your chores. But after thinking about it for awhile, reward can be many things. It could be a rare and memorable time where families get together. Or maybe after weeks of struggling and pushing yourself at the gym, you reached your goal to lose 10 pounds. Sometimes it could be as simple as getting a chance to finally read your book or a nice warm bubble bath.

After a crazy and chaotic week at work, what was rewarding for me was when I got to relax in the sand for a couple of hours at the beach. The weather was perfect, sunny with a light breeze, not too cold, not too hot. Just me and my fluffy best friend, taking in the sun and watching the boats sail by. One of my goals for 2015 was to spend more time outdoors, and so far it has been great. I feel more positive and energized, even after just sitting in the sand for a few hours!

01. Hello world!

Well here it is. My first entry.

I’m really excited and not sure where I’ll go with this… It’s been a really longtime since I’ve written something and I am afraid my writing skills have gotten worse over the years. “Practice makes perfect”, so that’s why I am starting this blog.

I’m not sure WHAT exactly I’ll be blogging about and I’m sure my first couple of entries will be cringe-worthy. But hopefully over time, if I keep this up, my writing skills with grow and become more natural.

Can’t wait to get started!
