Clear Head Friday

Tomorrow morning I am off to Costa Rica with my family! My mom retired from her job a few months ago and is taking all of us on a fun vacation to celebrate. I haven't seen my brother in...jeez, I can't even think of the last time I saw my brother.* That's bad. So, yeah, I haven't seen my brother and his girlfriend in a long time, and I've never been to Costa Rica. This is going to be an amazing vacation, and I am so looking forward to doing nothing but relaxing.

Yup, this is the beach where I will be relaxing! PURA VIDA!

Tomorrow is also my six-year wedding anniversary...

The husband and I have been married for six years and together for lucky thirteen. Yeah, that's a long time. Go us! Amazingly, we haven't killed each other yet. I celebrate this fact every single day.*

I can't thank you guys enough for the amazing response to my post yesterday. It means so much to me to know that I'm not alone. I'm going to spend a lot of time over my vacation just thinking about things. Not writing, but planning. I'm hoping to return with a clear head. I hate being so insecure.

That's what vacations are good for, right? Clearing your head? I sure hope so.

Thanks for the love.

*Ok, it turns out I last saw my brother in February, which really wasn't that long ago. I just totally forgot. Sister FAIL, for sure. 

**As you can see, I'm not very sappy.


  1. This trip will be amazing for you and SO deserved! Yes! Relax relax relax and if in one of those moments you have some clarity, great. If you don't - don't let that eat away at you. Just enjoy!

  2. Wow...congratulations on your wedding anniversary and the trip to Costa Rica. I'm jealous. Please bring back pictures and stories of how beautiful the beaches are. And maybe post a shirtless man pic or two if you can find one with suitable muscles.

  3. Wow! You're going to have an amazing time! Have a great trip and happy anniversary:)

  4. Have a blast! Can't wait to hear all about it!
