Beach and Ballet

The beach and ballet are 2 things very dear to my heart.  

I love the beach.  I grew up camping with my family on the beach every summer since I was a pipsqueak and grew up surfing with my dad since I was 7 years-old.  Ballet is also something I did as a small child and a bit here and there just for fun.  I tell people I think God created my body to dance.  It makes my soul happy!  So many things do, and  now I get to share these loves with my loves!

Daphné and I at the beach on windy day.


January coastline.

Welcome to the French Riviera in the winter.


Seagulls will be seagulls.

They were playing in the wind currents.

My sweetums.

When did she get so big? 

Oh man, I love this kid!

Watching the seagulls.

Morning café and a pain au chocolat.

Trying on mama's heels.

She's back in them after her bath.

Mama getting ready to go to the ballet with papa.

She's such a sweet little tiny person.

And here we are inside the Théâtre National de Nice (TNN) where I actually danced in 2013 and 2014 =).  We saw a ballet rendition of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" by the Monte Carlo ballet company.  It was lovely.

What else makes my soul come to life?

Dancing // dancing myself, watching others dance
Hiking // exploring God's beautiful creation 
Live music // playing it, listening to it
Singing // it makes me so happy 
Beach // just being there, surfing!
Traveling // flying, airports, new places
Tonio // sharing life's adventure with him
Daphné // being her mama, learning so much from her
Jesus // without Him my soul has no hope, I love Him so much!
He has given me life, my every breath.
If you don't know Him, I invite you to read how.

What makes your soul come to life?

Love Linz


  1. Subscribing to your great blog or posting a comment are not very clearly described when one only reads the posts... Maybe it's just me ? or you could put some info about that in the general info about your blog?

    1. I hope to have remedied the subscription. As far as comments, blogger is lame and works best in some browsers, not in others. I have no idea. It's a free blog, so I get what I pay for (or don't). Ha!
