bring me home beach
my husband served an LDS mission in Ventura California for two years. he woke up faithfully every morning for two WHOLE years and served with all his heart. it's in my top ten FAVORITE THINGS ON THE PLANET to hear my husband talk about his mission. he LOVED those two years. he met some of the most INCREDIBLE people that took care of him and became his family. he lived for those people and for the gospel of Jesus Christ. my husband is the ULTIMATE man because he learned how to truly love complete strangers and create life-long friendships.
this last summer we had the WONDERFUL WONDERFUL opportunity to return to this mission. i got to see first hand the places that created the memories and the people that were lucky enough to have dillon in their lives. although he didn't go to a foreign countries, there were parts of his mission that seemed third-world! there were slums and ghettos one day and the next day we were on the coast passing mansions! it was an EPICALLY beautiful experience. i fell in love with the people and the scenery in merely a WEEK :)
this painting was inspired by beautiful MORRO BAY :) someday i WILL live there. it's your classic beach town right on the coast with the ocean stretching for miles and MILES! this was one of my husband's favorite coastal sites, just this random view around a bend of the road. ABSOLUTELY BREATH TAKING. i loved the memories that we made in california and can not WAIT to get back there asap! my heart just belongs to the coast! and the mountains... i pray that there will someday be a beach in provo canyon! YESSS then life will be complete! until then, morro bay will MORE than suffice :)
