The Beach + The Mountains

It is so easy to get caught up in our daily routine that sometimes we may forget to add a little spontaneity or something different to our schedule that we absolutely love doing but may not get as many opportunities to do so.

Today's topic : Describe your ideal day.  Where would you go and what would you do?

It is hard for me to pick just one ideal day because to be quite honest, I am very indecisive and can very rarely choose favorites of anything.  So, I have two "ideal day" options to share. ;)

Ideal Day #1

The day begins waking up just before the sun rises.  The view from the window is one of nautical beauty, the air is filled with the smell of ocean breeze, the sound of waves fill the entire room.  Upon waking up, I leisurely get ready for the day.

A lunch/coffee date with friends in the afternoon is the only plan on the to-do list for the day.  Prior to meeting up with friends for the afternoon, I check out the local shops just along the ocean side.  Everything from antiques, handmade jewelry, to beautifully crafted pottery and vintage clothing.  I make my way to the cafe with friends where we catch up on all the latest news in each others' lives.

From there, we spend the rest of the day on the beach: jet skis, sun bathing, jumping the waves, casually walking the beach with a drink in hand.  As the evening approaches, a bonfire on the beach is completely necessary.  S'mores with Reese's peanut butter cups, music on loud, dancing is seen and laughing is heard.

Ideal Day #2

 Vacationing in a log cabin in the middle of the mountains.  The alarm is not set, we wake up to a light rain falling down.  The sound is faint but just loud enough to hear its pitter patter against the cabin.  Looking outside you can see the beauty of the mountainous terrain through the soft wall of rain.  Still in cozy pajamas, we make our way onto the porch, sipping coffee of course.

Once the rain lets up, we prepare for the day.  On the to-do list...anything considered to be "outdoorsy".  Kayaking, hiking, four-wheeling, mudding, swimming in the water hole, etc, etc.  Nighttime falls upon us, covered in a blanket of stars.  Perhaps the night ends with an outdoor concert.  The smell of fresh air all around us.

Both of these days are easily ideal in my book.  After considering my top two ideal days I realize there are a few things in common: being outside, drinking coffee, and listening to music.

I am a complete beach girl at heart and love to be outdoors taking part in God's beautiful creation.

What would you consider to be an ideal day?  Be creative!
