I love Santa Cruz, I love surfers, I love the idea of surfing.
I love that I can have amazing friendships that can span many miles, I love the internet for this reason.
I love that I was able to meet some of these friends in real life, on this day, and walk with them on this beach.
I love a good rainbow, isn’t it beautiful Michelle?
I love shadows, chasing a boy in white shorts, seeing green.
I love sand in my shoes, the sound of the ocean, the sun in the trees.
I love a break, a time for myself, a fill up.
I love laughter, the feeling of the nervousness going away, hugs.
I love watching my friend take photos, hearing her voice, catching up where we left off.
Oh Santa Cruz, I love you.
