Oh, to be back there! Last week I was lucky enough to escape to Florida to visit one of my best friends. It was an amazing trip! In a lot of ways, it was exactly what I needed.
Thanks to a few long walks to get coffee, a trip to the gym, and a pretty serious dance party in the living room until midnight, I hit a step goal high for me. Over 18k steps! It was nice to stay active while on my mini vacation.
Friday we actually made it to the beach. I got a pretty serious sunburn thanks to it being cloudy, and not thinking I needed sunscreen for our long walk. I’ve written before about how much I love the beach. It just makes me feel better about … everything. Whenever I’m having a hard time, salt water can fix it – whether that is in the form on ocean, tears, or sweat.
It was amazing to see my friend! We also visited a local brewery while I was there, which is always a great time. I think the tasting set up was my favorite so far! Everyone needs a little popcorn while drinking beer!
This trip was just what I needed, but I’ve also been a little sad since I’ve been back. It reminded me of a time when I was really sure about life and was surrounded by lots of people that just … get me. I still sometimes feel out of place here. That’s for a different day.
