Summer Staycation

20 May

Every summer we travel which I love and look forward to. This summer, we are planning our first ever “stay-cation”.

Do you know what that means? No resorts, no hotels with someone else cleaning up after my family of five. No sleeping in hotel beds, wearing big fluffy white robes, no lounging at the Spa having a facial, massage, mani/pedi , or anti-aging scrub.

I needed to start looking at the positives of this year’s summer plans in order to avoid utter disappointment over missing our trip to Boston, Chicago, Arizona, Calgary, San Fran or Halifax. I happened upon a magazine article in O The Oprah Magazine, titled 40 Ways to Love Your Summer more. This article inspired me to find ways to enjoy our stay-cation!

I should mention that the reason for our non-trip summer, is that we had an in-ground salt water pool installed last Fall. For our first stay-cation at least we have an in-ground pool to enjoy! In order to enjoy the time off work while staying home, I plan to ditch the normal household routines, read by the pool, mix up pitchers of iced tea and sangria to enjoy by the pool, take day trips to sites close to home that we’ve never seen, watch movies and hire someone to come in and clean the house that week. In the end, I’m quite certain it will be a very relaxing stay-cation/vacation from work and I know it will cost much less than travelling as a family of five.

Bucket list trip

11 Apr

For 8 years I dreamed of our trip to Paris. My daughter would be turning 16 and I, 50. In six days we saw every historic sight we could, walked over 20 kms a day and soaked up the Parisian culture until it oozed out of our pores. We rode the lift up the Eiffel Tower to see the incredible views of the city, but this photo of the magnificent, historic tower is one of my favs.

Words are powerful and can be used to heal or harm. I believe in using my powers for good. Compassion, celebration of Gaia and our shared humanity, random kindness, the wonder of the human spirit, the poetry of empathy, all inspire me daily.
