(Inside: The place that calms my busy-mom heart.)
Everyone needs THAT PLACE. Mine can be a few minutes of sitting underneath the evening sky. (Often, simply on my front porch step.) The forever expanse of stars reminds me: God is so big. The beauty: God is good. Obstacles seem a tad bit lower, hope brighter and I feel myself exhale. I’m drawn in by creation to be in awe of the Creator. The beach does that for me too. Getting here can be so #TheStuggleIsReal, but look at us once we’ve made it: two playing, one trying to hold the sun…my heart overflows.

Pictures were taken with my phone and edited in Photoshop. (Specifically, a few swimmers out of the background. I’m telling you photo editing software is a mom’s best friend. It’s impossible to get the same picture twice of our moving targets so good enough works; editing can do the rest. Bless you Photoshop.)
Even though I prefer Photoshop, Photoshop Elements is a little bit of an easier program and cheaper if you are not “all in.” I’ve heard good things about Lightroom as well, but haven’t ever found a reason to leave Photoshop. (Affiliate links.)
