Walking on Sunshine

8 03 2011

Remember that song by Katrina and the Waves, Walking on Sunshine? I have always loved that song.

I’m Walking on Sunshine right now. I flew down to Florida yesterday morning with my sister Lisa, and we are staying with our sister Julie, who lives in South Florida. Good times and gentle breezes that are good for the soul.

What are we doing?

Whatever we want and a whole lot of nothing.

Watching movies, like Bye Bye Birdie and Eat, Pray, Love. Telling old stories about our days growing up on Greythorne Trail in Farmington Hills, Mich. Eating really good, really healthy food — I’m serious about this. Lounging by the pool. And getting ready for a walk on the beach. There aren’t many things that can reconnect you to your very soul like a walk on the beach.

Most of all, we are just being sisters. Laughing, loving, being our crazy selves.

Just what the doctor ordered! (Or should have!) Have a wonderful sunshiny time. Wiggle your toes in the sand for me…Close your eyes and listen to the gentle roar of the waves…Feel the breeze run through your fuscia hair! Love ya!
