Was it cold?
Well, yes. But my in-laws from Portland, Oregon were visiting & I think the coast there is always a little chilly so we bundled up babies & hit the inlet in Manasquan, NJ for pictures of a new family. And for me, crisp air that tastes like ocean & fills my lungs with nostalgia: I love the beach in winter. Its empty & bracing & gently reminds me that warmer days are coming.
The sun was generous & the smiles full of warmth & joy.
I’m so glad that I’m part of a family that is like sunlight to me. Generous, warm, joyful.
Even as far as the east is from the west doesn’t put a damper on that.
Thanks Jay & Jen & little Theo.
Happy to be so,
This is what brothers from NJ do when they try to “act” the stereotype. (hahahahaha!!)
