Exciting Month

3 May

This is an exciting month. I’m running away to a private island off the coast of Honduras. Well, I’ll try, anyway. If they don’t want me to extend my stay, I’ll make my way to El Salvador. There are children in a village there I want to revisit. Or maybe you’ll find me in Mexico, instead, or Miami or Key West.

Before I do any of that though, I’ll be at the beach for a bachelorette party and back home for a graduation, anniversary party and a wedding.

Like I said, this an exciting month.

I’ll admit that secretly I had hoped all these celebrations, far off places and beautiful people would distract my mind from what happened, and what’s coming, but running away never works the way we intend it to though, does it?

It doesn’t matter where you go, you can’t escape people who never really leave when they’re gone. So instead, I’ll take the time to stop and remember. I’ll embrace it, and feel it. I’ll take time for silence, and to say thank you.

Then with my head held high (hopefully), I’ll continue down the path I’m on in this one wild and precious life.

    Sounds wonderful, and I love your attitude on life. On an unrelated note, I saw Baltimore had some serious damage from the heavy rains. I hope you and yours didn’t sustain any.

        I’m still trying to figure out what I should wear for our Skype date. I don’t want you to think I’m too slutty.

    I hadn’t seen that post before. I’m so so sorry.
    It’s actually kind of nice that he’ll be with you wherever you go, and if nothing else, being elsewhere will give you a different perspective.

    Hope you have a fantastic time, wherever you may roam!

    Good luck to you and I’m sorry to hear of your loss. Time heals wounds but doesn’t handle the heart very well. Enjoy your getaway.
