I am back in business today kids. Hopefully I didn't lose too many of you :(
Thank you for understanding my need for a little break. Now that we are home, I can spill the beans on our vacation. I was worried about sharing too much on the internets before we left.
We were gone for TWO whole weeks. It was beautiful & much needed. We went on a 7 day Caribbean cruise with my parents and grandmas. Then one grandma and my parents left and we got right back in line with the other grandma and went for another 7 days. Back to back cruising they call it. I on the other hand, call it genius.
The trip has been planned forever and since the grandma that did both weeks with us is an avid cruise goer, we get tons of amazing perks and have now made it our life’s goal to be on her privileged cruise level.
I know cruising has gotten a bad rep but honestly I think it is the best way to travel BUT more to come on all that when I do a recap of the vacay.
Today though I guess I just wanted to talk briefly about the perspective that comes with escaping reality for so many days. Traveling to new places and finding small things like sea shells important again and eating dessert after every meal, slowly without guilt, brings a different kind of perspective or awareness if you will.

Yesterday kind of sucked but today I made it a goal to remind myself all day that the beauty and peace I found on vacation doesn't need to stay on vacation.
Everyday has beautiful and exciting parts of it, you just have to be open and aware of them. No, they won't always include sun or a Pina Colada but there is no happiness in just being miserable with your routine.
