Marcie, this is wonderful! I love the blues (it just looks so summery to me) and the comp and items you used. Great clarity and detail! Congrats on your POTD!

I read where Ronald F says it is snowing in May (I will have to look to see where Ronald is) and just wanted to mention how nice and warm it is in FL now. I could have used that soft towel and those flip-flops after Justin and I got out of the pool today! The pool reached 81 degrees today and felt nice even though we have had a brisk breeze all day (but it has been warm). :) #5911053

My thoughts seem to be a season ahead this year. All winter I was thinking of spring. Now it is spring I'm thinking of summer. (LOL).

Just some fun with a beach towel, flip flops and starfish. Had to purchase some new items to get my creativity flowing again.
