After a husbandless week filled with errands, exercise classes, homeschooling, more errands, projects, blog post-writing, and very little cleaning, my house is in need of some serious attention.
There are tubs and toilets to be scrubbed, toys to be organized, floors to be mopped, laundry to be done.
The list could (and does) go on.
But before the cleaning/organizing
bloodbath whirlwind begins, I thought it might be nice to stop and take a moment to…
…of places I’d rather be right now.
1. Prince Edward Island
As an avid Anne-fan from an early age, PEI was always on my travel bucket-list.
I got to check it off over 10 years ago, but I would go back in an instant.
If you’re wondering whether the pictures overstate its beauty, they don’t.
In fact, they only barely capture the extent of just how breathtaking its green meadows and blue skies truly are.
2. Costa Rica
This one may actually happen (thought not today, obviously).
3. Manly, Australia
Two years ago, just Shaun and I took a trip to Sydney over New Year’s 2010.
It was, quite possibly, the best trip of my life, and one of the highlights was visiting the little beach town of Manly.
We took the ferry over several times because we loved its quaintness, its fantastic restaurants, and the solitude of its beaches at night.
4. A spa
Okay, so this one’s a bit more generic because I honestly don’t care where the spa is (although a spa retreat in Costa Rica doesn’t sound too shabby right now).
Pretty much anywhere where they’ll make my toes pretty and massage my head sounds good to me.
That last one is only marginally spa-related, but I’ve always been in awe of mamas who take the time to Bento-ify their kiddos’ food, and this spa-themed plate blows my mind a little.
5. A bookstore
…with a really good mug of hot chocolate.
Again, it doesn’t much matter where, but this particular bookstore is in Boulder, Colorado, which is a really fun city, so that would be just fine by me.
So, what about you?
Anywhere else you’d rather be right now?
P.S. Just in case you missed this week’s Thrifted or Grifted results…they’re in!
