Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Happy Tuesday! Did you have a good Christmas? This was Caleb's and my first Christmas without any family around. We thought Caleb would have to work through it (that's the military for ya), but his supervisors were so sweet to let him have the day off! So on Christmas Eve we headed off to explore a nearby beach by us. We've been here for almost a year and yet I had no idea this place was so close. To make things even better, when we left the house it started to snow; our first snow of the season!
Walking through the woods was like a dream! It was so quiet, the only sound we could hear was snow hitting the ground and our footsteps crunching against the dirt. It's a bit of a hike down to the beach. The views on our way there were amazing.
We were hoping to see some sort of sea creatures when we finally made it to the beach, but there wasn't anything but shells. To be honest if I was a starfish I'd want to stay off of the cold beach too!
We could barely see the ocean's waters with the fog. It's so crazy how there was no fog anywhere except for right where the water started. It just seemed like this whole spot was out of a storybook.

Isla slept through the whole thing, all bundled up against me in the baby carrier.  It was the most magical Christmas Eve. All I could think about was how blessed I was to be surrounded in such a beautiful place with my loves. I can't believe this life is mine.
