I am coming off a five-day holiday. I’d been saving up my vacation days, and decided it was time to spend a few. So I did.
And it was awesome.
I didn’t “accomplish” that much. But I totally separated myself from work, and focused on relaxing. I’m still feeling a little bit overwhelmed in general, but I definitely needed a break.
I want to share some of the little events from the week.
The day with the smallest number of photos is Friday, so I’ll start with that, since I don’t have much time before work.
P. and I took a day trip to the beach! It was July 19, and I hadn’t been there once this year.
We had a gorgeous day.
For most of the morning, I laid and read, and P. napped. No photos other than what I posted on Instagram about reading #girlboss. I was all about soaking up the sun.
For lunch, we went to the pizza place on the boardwalk. We sat down like it was a real meal, instead of grabbing some slices and spending three minutes eating them. The waitress was the sweetest, from California, sounded like a hippie, and gave me a free taste of her favorite gelato at the end.
I ordered a mini pizza with artichokes, fresh spinach, tomatoes, and gorgonzola, and swapped the chicken for tofu.
When we got back to the blanket, we were overrun with people, so we packed up and took an awesome long walk. We were so distracted, we forgot to play skee ball. I guess that means we have to go back soon.
