wishful thinking.

January 12, 2011
last night at 10:45 p.m., my friend t. and i bundled up (well, bundled up by florida standards) and drove to siesta key beach, where we scattered our wishes for 2011 into the gulf of mexico at exactly 11:11 p.m. we’d written the wishes on strips of paper, and watching them flutter into the ocean was like watching little butterflies take flight — i felt almost proud. 
there’s something magical about the beach at night, and that magic — coupled with the fact that yesterday felt like a lucky day — made sending off those wishes all the more fun and crazy and auspicious. it was a great, unexpected thing to do, and i came home feeling giggly and happy and full of possibility.
how were your tuesdays? how are your wednesdays? xoxo

    Sounds like a lot of fun! I didn’t even realize it was 11:11 either time yesterday, doh!

    What an incredible idea–and how nice is it that you’re so close to the beach! You should be proud 🙂 The beach definitely is magical at night…sounds like a perfect Tuesday nightcap to me! So happy to have found your blog! xoxo {av}

    I really wish I lived that close to the beach. What fun!

    The day got off to a rocky start, but I’m feeling better now. I’ll be happy when I am at home this evening. xo.
