Every chance I get, I visit my best friend and my goddaughter. They live in San Diego, in a house that is just a few steps away from the beach. You can hear the ocean breeze from the balcony, smell the salty air, you can almost feel the ocean right beneath you. I have come to realize that I belong by the beach. I love how the ocean atmosphere changes me. My skin gets an instant glow, my hair looks sun-kissed, and my mood gets elevated.
I have gotten a criticism that I don’t smile too often in pictures. I’ve always said that a fake smile is always apparent in pictures. I have to have a reason to smile.
This beautiful view puts a smile on my face. Besides being next to my loved ones, the ocean has a way to make me happy.
