Last week, my family and I took a much needed vacation. Very Much Needed.
We were able to get out of town and head to the beach for some sun, sand and relaxation.
I had plans to blog, but the Internet access was slow, so aside from occasionally checking my email, I kept the computer turned off.
Instead, I slept in until 8am, I went to bed early, I ran/power walked every morning, I played in the ocean with my kids, I looked for seashells with my 4 year old, I watched my 2 year old climb a big-girl jungle gym, I spent time at the pool, I ate Oreos, I ate ice cream, I ate donuts, I pushed my kids on the swing, my kids pushed me on the swing, I spent time with my parents and I watched my husband's stress melt away.
I breathed. I exhaled. I returned to center.
And now I'm back and that feels good too.
