There is something to be said about just being responsible for yourself. I just escaped for two days, just me and the old man, no kids, no work, just us and island time. And bicycles.
Did I mention Island time?
Kelley's Island. It was wonderful for two days. We biked the whole island more than once. Made us wish that we could bike our neighborhood to get places. Made us real sad that our neighborhood is not bike friendly for living.
Things we did: had no kids. So...anything we wanted, pretty much. Which consisted mostly of riding bikes around the island and eating food. No complaints. And feel like real people.
I love my kids, but it is just nice to love my husband and love myself every now and again. It didn't even matter that it was overcast, cold and sometimes rainy. It was wonderful. This may be a 'duh' statement but my element is water. Obviously, I hear you snicker, of course it is, we all knew that. But, I truly feel so much calmer when I'm surrounded by water. It's a good fun fact to know.
I had more I wanted to write. But...I just got off of the water conference circuit, and back from a major mental reset. I'm pretty blank. And I have one more day of vacation left, part of the back home stay-cation. I'll leave you with a half-ass written blog and some pretty pictures.
