Sometimes I wonder if being born under the Aquarius sign has any doing in my love for the water. Whenever I begin to feel restless, a quick trip to a lake, ocean, or even a long bath always seems to snap me out of my disarray.
The day before I was in labor with Sofia, I spent the entire day -- 7 full hours -- floating in the pool at my parent's house. I remember how weightless I felt, to finally have those few, quiet moments in the water to myself.
I feel the pull of the sea often. I hope someday we might even be fortunate enough to call a place home near the water. Until then, I'll remember to take trips like these no matter how short as often as I can.
