Finding the perfection in the imperfection, She's 15 and treasures natures gifts not texts

While our family day trips up and down the Northern California coast are often, providing an opportunity to appreciate each other and the various treasures along the way. On this day, we were displaying our beach finds, but I lingered, appreciating my 15 year old daughter was seeking shells, not texts. Her nail polish peeling and imperfect. Laughing, playing and holding onto childhood a little longer.
