Damn Sound of Music song stuck in my head....
I love to travel.
This has probably been one of the hardest things to let go of since getting married, having a baby, putting down roots. I chose to live in the same city as my parents because I wanted to have a tight nuclear family, I grew up with my grandparents and loved it and I want the same for my kids.
With that said, I get extremely stir crazy. I love being in different cultures, learning new things and seeing history live. I have learned the most about myself when traveling. Being a fish out of water lets you see what is important and what is trivial.
I love to read.
This is my saving grace. Historical fiction or a topic relating to something I am going through at the moment are my favorites. Reading allows me to mentally travel. When I was pregnant my favorite weekend activity was to read through a whole book. Any problems are forgotten and suddenly I can be in an exotic locale.
I need to make a more concentrated effort to set aside time to read. In the past couple months I have been better. I love seeing what other people are reading, I am hoping to start reviewing books in the next couple days.
I love my friends and family.
I'm coming to NY people!!! I have been blessed to pick up friends throughout my life. These women are an amazing, brilliant and beautiful group. Because I live in Miami with the lure of palm trees I see them on a regular basis but even without seeing them I know they are always here.
I don't exactly know where this post is going and I don't like the way it is set up (it is always so much better in my head).
What are you guys reading?
What is the best place you have travelled to? (My answer is the island of Capri, just off of Naples, Italy. Damn those Italians do it right!).
