Happy New Year!! We are back from Mexico! Amazing what 10 days away from tv, phones, internet and even a clock can do for your life... the first few days I was riddled with anxiety from not being able to check my email or read the news on my phone, but after the initial shock wore off I felt such an overwhelming amount of calmness (so much so that I cancelled my facebook account the first chance I got and have continued to spend less time online and on the phone since I have been home)... In our 10 days away from reality I was able to catch up on some much needed sleep, reflect on, feel ok with and move on from an issue that has bothered me nearly my entire life, start and actually finish a book, eat as much guacamole as my heart desired, witness my son play with and try to conceptualize sand for the very first time (best. thing. in. the. world.) and hear the ocean crash from my bedroom window every night. Most importantly, I walked off the plane in San Francisco feeling so extremely grateful for my sweet husband + precious son... truly blessed to call them my family. Can't wait to see what 2012 has in store for us!
