Each day, I go check flickr to see more photos of your favorite family memories. It’s a bright spot in my day! This morning, the photos reminded me of one of my own favorite memories — the day we waved goodbye to the Atlantic Ocean.

It was just a few weeks before we moved to Denver. We had lived in New York for 8 years and were broken-hearted to leave. To help my kids say goodbye, we made a list of all of our favorite New York activities (like walking across the Brooklyn Bridge) and put them all on a calendar. One of the very first activities, was waving goodbye to the ocean. I remember that day so clearly! The fog, the empty beach, seeing my kids climbing the boulders. I’m going to tear up just thinking about it…
