Nothing special, but it's the everyday moments like this that make life worth living :)

Shortly after 11:11 I left to go teach at the Craft Beach Retreat in Santa Monica. It was a perfect day when I arrived.

Every seat in the class looked out the window onto the beautiful beach.

Over the course of my class the clouds rolled in and it started raining a little bit. I loved the cloud formations and all the different colors of them.

I couldn't leave without walking along the boardwalk and taking all the scenery in.
