When I first moved back to Florida during a very difficult time in my life, I turned to the beach for comfort and peace. I had grown up near the beach in Miami, but I had not lived near a beach since I was 13 years old. Nearing 40 and struggling to rebuild myself and my life, I came home to the beach. Once I got somewhat settled in, I took my bible and my new beach chair to the nearest beach and began my recovery. Sitting in my chair and feeling content and at peace for the first time in many years, I looked down at my feet and snapped this picture. I added the "Happy toes" caption and sent it to a friend who said it looked like a postcard. This is what gave me the idea to combine all of my passions under the Happy Toes name so I thought it only fitting that this should be my first blog post. Welcome to my world!
