We're back from an amazing 16 days in London, Oia-Santorini, Rome, Florence & Venice - a trip the four of us will long remember for all that we saw and did! Have to admit - it's very hard adjusting back to real life. Which only makes me think that I'm not interested in returning to it exactly as it was.
I like to think of a vacation as vacating your life as you know it; leaving behind old routines and opening new doors. On this trip I really noticed the routines and habits of my back-at-home life that are more of a burden than a joy and the things that matter more to me now that I'm close to turning 50 :)
Here's a few of the changes I'm making:
- a lot less time on the internet
- saying yes to opportunities that just pop up. Just said yes to a week up in the Thousand Islands, the pre-vacation me would have turned it down
- focusing more on staying in touch with extended family and friends
- returning to the book project I started this winter. It has nothing to do w/design or this blog but it's something I'm really excited about it. More on it in August.
Hope you're been having a great summer. Curious, has your vacation time got you thinking about any life changes?
