It’s been 3 years since I got on a plane without my camera gear, and while I love being able to travel to so many unique places in the name of love, my heart yearns for sandy toes and a light carry on bag.
So this Sunday Jay and I are going just that. We are taking a week off to explore a little island that I know only in fond memories. Recharging, hiking to waterfalls, drinking Mai-Tai’s on the sand, reading, and spending time with family are top do-to items.
For those that feel burnt out, I get you. I ask you today to find a open week in your calendar, even if it’s a year out…and mark it. Take a permanent black marker and color it in so much you aren’t even sure what dates are behind it. You might be tempted to move the dates around a bit if the “perfect job” comes in, but trust me when I say Murphy loves making vacations nonexistent. Because if you are anything like me, in the moment your life is just too crazy to “take time off”.
You need it to be creative.
