sunshine and sand

happy tuesday, friends!
this is the latest piece, finished late last night.

for as long as i can remember, the coast has been my home away from home. i'm longing to be there again.
i've spent summers working as a waitress, firefighter, and housekeeper on the coast. i've also spent summers relaxing in the sunshine with a cool salty breeze and not a care in the world. today i'm holding those memories close to my heart.
