There's something to be said about the enthusiasm of a child. 4-and-a-half-year-old Zara (remember when you insisted on including the half-year?) was absolutely thrilled by the wet sand she discovered on Lido Beach in Sarasota. She ran to the water, scooped up a handful and ran back several times, each time just as excited as the last, proudly displaying her slimy find with a smile and a laugh. Love that zest for the simple things in life! Zara and her mom were my house guests over the weekend -- great fun! I'm now preparing for Sarasota Spring Break House Guests Part II, which unfolds later this week. There's nothing like living in the Sunshine State in March! Rest always takes a back seat until April.
