Mermaids and Unicorns...

on a delightful trip to the beach
~ where summer was extended with September's warmth and sunshine ~
a mermaid appeared

and long haired dogs were filled with joy

we enjoyed the sun setting on the ocean

{and I decided to be Queen of the Beach}

and one golden evening a unicorn pranced on the sand

I wonder, if I walked on the beach, would I turn into the queen of the beach? If I wished hard enough? There is magic to be found in every grain of sand, and you found it. And to top it off with this unicorn ? You did it.

My friend, thank you for this journey and for sharing it with me. I LOVE THE MIST OF THE OCEAN!

Oh, Violet it's been far to long, and now I must go catch up on all your postings of inspiration.
The most beautiful thing on the beach was you, and of course your afghan hounds. I have something in common with you, and that is the love of this breed. I had one that I adored and one day the gardener left the gate open and it happened to get out without notice, I searched up and down the streets and neighborhoods to come to the conclusion that she must have been taken mislisously.

They are so smart, and what beauty in there up keep. Yours are so pretty, and yes you are the queen of the beach.
I love how you inspire beauty here, so I am off to see what else you have inspired, thank you dearly for taking the time to visit, the book will also have some beach scean in it as's so much more then a book one would think only someone planning a wedding would purchase, it's a design book as much as a wedding book.

See you soon dear.

Well hello there, BEAUTIFUL friend! I just love your new profile photo my dear and I should also change mine too. We both have our hair the exact same length now, and I am loving it on me and on YOU!

Many hugs and thanks for always being there for me; your visits mean the world to me and thank you for commenting. Oh, to be day, ONE DAY! And together, we'll ride white horses on the shores of His ocean of mercy. Yowsers, just the thought of it is enough to make one giddy with JOY!

Have a wonderful last few days of September!
