Good Start…

Looking north toward the downtown Sarasota from the approach to the Siesta Key Bridge.

Every weekday I get to drive over the north bridge to Siesta Key on my way to my part-time office job. Every day that I drive over this bridge I am grateful. I am always grateful for where I live – I have to thank my parents profusely for having me in Florida and not someplace where the temperature is hovering around freezing right now. But I feel more acutely aware of my gratitude whenever I am near the water. Every single time I drive over this bridge I am blown away by the beauty of this amazing place that is my home… This morning the bridge was up, the tide was out and I was fortunate enough to stop my vehicle in a spot that was perfect to take a quick photo. Pretty good way to start a day…
