Back From Vacation


Usually, coming back from vacation means settling back into one’s routine and getting back to real life. How strange it is to come back from vacation right before a cross-country move and the start of a new chapter. Instead of settling into a routine, I have to get packing, job hunting, and moving. Instead of real life, it’s the crazy emotional chaos that goes along with a huge life transition.

Not that I’m complaining. It just hasn’t sunk in yet, I think.

Some highlights from our amazing vacation (posts coming soon!):

~Pina coladas in our quiet corner of the ship, looking out at the Gulf of Mexico

~Making friends with a monkey in Cozumel

~Ridiculous inside jokes that make no sense, even to us

~Dos Equis and guacamole at the beach in Mexico

~Marveling at the Louisiana live oaks

~Po’boys…oh, so many po’boys

~Beignets at Cafe du Monde
