I have so much to blog about, but as I forewarned you – I'm doing a lot of traveling which is making it difficult to find time to write.
I know, I know …
You feel terribly sorry for me … travel stress going to and from Hawaii.
What a catastrophe my life is, right?
I have a really shocking travel story to share with you as soon as I get the chance.
I also have some interesting photos to post in upcoming days.
Today is a transition day as I unpack from Hawaii and prepare to leave for BlogHer11 (the world's biggest blogging conference) tomorrow.
Next week my life will (hopefully) begin to settle down into a more normal routine.
Hawaii was wonderful, of course.
How could it not be?
I'll be honest,
As of today, I'm not looking forward to attending BlogHer.
I signed up to attend the conference a year ago, and now I find myself less than enthused to go.
The reasons why are a soap opera unto themselves, and for the time being I'm going to keep them to myself. I'm hoping, once I do arrive at the conference, I end up getting everything out of it I originally hoped for. (Regardless, I'll let you know either way.)
The days in Hawaii were lazy.
Every morning I sipped coffee on our lanai, listening to the waves crash just a few feet away.
I spent my time walking, hiking, reading, swimming, taking photos, hanging out on the beaches, being amused by sea turtles, etc.
(My Internet access was very sketchy which was probably a blessing.)
Every evening we indulged in fresh sashimi and other appetizers, along with libations, out on our lanai.
Most nights we barbequed dinner on the beach as the sun set.
Have I mentioned how beautiful it is in Hawaii?
Occasionally, we treated ourselves to a meal out.
It was great to have some very concentrated "family time" with all three of my kids present.
I fell asleep each night with the large sliding glass window of my bedroom open. The sea breeze and the crashing waves lulled me to sleep.
Oh, how I wish I could live just feet from the ocean every day!
Now, instead, I'm doing a couple quick loads of laundry and heading down to San Diego. I will be blogging as I continue my travels.
I return to Orange County next Monday.
I appreciate your patience as I take you along on my journey!
