From as far back as I can remember I have always wanted to be a mermaid. There was just something about the salty smell of the beach and the water that I was naturally drawn to. As I've grown into my adult skin, this mermaid ideology has remained. If I could quit my job and travel to the best beaches all over the world I would do so in a heart beat. But as life takes its turns, and pirates booty must be made I will just have to travel as often as I can. I'm a busy gal, but aren't we all? I crave the warmth and the summer months living in New York where winters are killer (dare I even say that word during a July heat wave!), but I dream about a time when I can just pick up and go on a moments notice. Ahh dreams!!! So if I can't travel as much as I'd like, I have the power of positive thinking and my mood board to inspire me. Take a peak at some of my favorite sunny tropical photos and let me know where your favorite spots to beach are!! Happy travels!
