Sara, Queen of Sea Glass

My sister in lawSara has collected sea glass for a long, long time. She has huge jars of it, and she even makes jewelry with it. It is because of Sara that I, too, now love and collect sea glass. I saw Sara's collection and thought it was so, so pretty. I am easily lured by things that I think are so, so pretty. But I only have about 2 tablespoons of sea glass date, and Sara has about 74 gallons* of the stuff. Dern.

The good stuff is about 3 hours away, at a beach called glass beach. I have never been to glass beach, but apparently the sea glass is as abundant as the manna God provided for the Israelites in the desert many years ago. Someday, I hope to take a trip to glass beach with my new sis. Not just for sea glass, but also because I love her.

*74 gallons is a rough estimate

We're SOOOO there. Winter is the best time - stormy weather = good waves for bringing in the glass! Maybe a girls' night away (you, me, K, N) is in order... Mendo here we come!

I love you too. So much!
