I am at the coast again this week, but this time it's a mix of work and vacation. I am alone, and the space is welcome. Don't get me wrong--it was so hard to leave my wonderful husband behind, but I'm realizing I needed these few days to myself.
Tonight, after work, I took myself out for dinner....I rarely eat alone outside of my house.
Then, down to the beach I went, making only one stop along the way at a candy shop. And there, I sat, watching the sunset and eating dark chocolate seafoam, breathing in the salty sea air.
Sometimes, restoration comes not in yoga, or tea, or meditation.
Sometimes, a girl just needs the ocean and some chocolate.
