The theme of this months NaBloPoMo is Nourish. As an aspiring food blogger you would think my mind would have immediately thought this would be a perfect opportunity to blog about food.
Interestingly, my first thought when I read the word Nourish was how to nourish my soul.
What nourishes my soul?
My little dude who is sleeping soundly in his bed.
My little girl who is balled up on my lap making it hard to type.
Good food, that I will gladly cook myself.
The company of all the family and friends in my life that I love and respect, who’s presence just makes it all better.
I have all of these things, much of the time.
There is one thing missing, though, and it is my desire to have all of these things at the beach.
Sure, I live in the beautiful Finger Lakes, with no shortage of lakes, sandy beaches, and waterfalls. But I long for the ocean. The smell. The sound of crashing waves. Pelicans. Dolphins. Warmth.
