Like I mentioned in my Motivation Monday post, Matt and I went to Seaside for the long Memorial Day weekend and I’m still trying to get it through my head that I’m no longer sitting on the beach without a care in the world. A co-worker came into my office yesterday afternoon to see where I was on a certain task and I literally just kind of stared at him like he had two heads for a few seconds. I had to refrain myself from asking him to please speak slower, bring me a mojito and my magazine. The struggle is real, y’all, and so is coming back from the beach to immediately be submerged into the endless to-do’s of my everyday. It’s hard to adjust and succumb to the fact that life must go on and bills must be paid. I always come back from vacation with this newfound desire to say “screw it” and just hop off the crazy hamster wheel, move to a small beach town, live in a little house and find easy jobs that provide just enough income to sustain a comfortable life. Anyone else ever feel this way? Surely I’m not the only one. Alas, I always come back down to earth, count my blessings, and pick right back up where I left off.
Anyways, we had a great time and were able to unwind, relax and enjoy not having any agenda. We always have to laugh at how boring the days can be without Asher Wade around, lol. I mean, seriously, what in the world did we do with our time before he came into the picture?! I know we weren’t, but I feel like we had to have been so bored. I found myself just walking aimlessly around Seaside throughout the day, or taking long bike rides, just for something to do. Not complaining – it was certainly nice for a change to have all that downtime. I honestly missed the chaos though. Matt and I did enjoy the alone time and being able to do what we wanted, when we wanted. Our dear friends were vacationing nearby, so we got to spend some time with them as well, which was such a treat. I missed my little buddy though, especially as I watched all the families running around and playing. This was actually the longest we have ever been away from Asher Wade, and I felt it. AW on the other hand was totally fine. He was living it up back in Chattanooga with GiGi and Pop-Pop (and yes, AW renamed them to this…so no more Granberry and Coach like my parents had picked out before he was born).
In other news, it’s June 1st! This year is flying by! I’m so happy summer is here. We have several fun things planned and I’m looking forward to getting outside and exploring more of our new city and state. Matt’s parents are coming to visit this coming weekend. There’s a week-long music festival starting next weekend and we have all access passes to that. Then we are taking AW camping over Father’s Day weekend for the first time. We are spending the July 4th weekend in Birmingham at Ross Bridge. So…lots to look forward to! Trying to figure out how to fit in another beach trip as well;)
I will leave you with a few pictures from this past weekend…
