journal day #1

*I'm not quite sure what happened to the html formatting on this post so just ignore the random gaps and font changes. Thanks!*

There's a super cute little blog I've been reading for a while now and it's called Sometimes Sweet and it's written by a lovely lady named Danielle. She has started a super cute project she calls "Journal Day." Basically, she puts up a prompt on her blog and then other bloggers/readers can not only read what she wrote but they can join in too! So, I've decided to jump in. I loved writing when I was in high school and college classes and my favorite times would be when the teacher would give us a word or phrase to write about and just let us free write for 15 minutes or so. I'm really excited to get started even though I'm getting a late start. She's already got day 2 up! If you want to join too just click here and get started!

Without further adieu, here's journal entry #1. 

"Describe a "first" (first date, first lie, the first time you experienced something, first time in a particular setting, etc). Include as many details as possible to paint a picture."

As some of you may know earlier this summer we visited my brother in Corpus Christi. This was the first time I had ever been to the ocean! It was so much fun! The sky was so blue, the sand so warm and the water felt great! I didn't actually swim in the ocean but I walked out up past my knees. For the most part I just relaxed under an umbrella with my toes in the sand and a nice cold water while everyone else went out and swam. It was so nice and relaxing. I could have sat out there all day and watched the little kids swimming, watched my husband and nephew play and splash and watch the seagulls flying around. I can't wait to go back next summer!  


  1. Hmm, I've been wanting to journal more. Perhaps I'll do this! I will! I will!

  2. I'm so happy for you! The ocean is a beautiful thing. =)
