I recently did one of my best friends a favor by watching her little one for the day.

I love doing these types of favors.

Instead of the “you want to see a movie?” babysitting day, I opted for sailing in our nearby neighborhood of Dana Point. –>
This was our view heading out.

Picture postcard perfect!

I love spending time with kids. I find myself answering questions I didn’t realize I had the answers to. Ok, maybe not answers so much as my take on things. I always learn a lot about myself through the things I say to children.

Also, I love seeing the world through a child’s eyes. I think somewhere on the road to adulthood, our perception of life gets somewhat tainted. It’s nice to keep it simple and notice the beauty we sometimes take for granted.

All and all It was a wondrous day filled with laughter, love and awe.

I really do live in paradise.

“The colors of a rainbow, so pretty the sky.”

“…and I think to myself
what a wonderful world.”

  1. I can't wait for my niece to be old enough to do this stuff with. To be able to answer her questions.I think I'd take her sailing or something like that as well. Something memorable and fun instead of just another movie.


  2. Thanks for stopping by, Anna! 🙂 I only wish my whale footage was as cool. We were pretty far away, but still, being there live was amazing. Just to see the tip of the whale's tail pop up and dive back down. 🙂


  3. I am the proud mom of the daughter she took sailing, and the proud of friend of one of the greatest people I've had the pleasure of being friends with!Thank you, thank you, thank you!!From both of us=)
