I don’t know about you, but I could not be more thrilled that today is Friday. This week has been dragging it’s feet and so have I. I partially blame the gloomy weather (we Angelenos thrive in the sunshine and wilt in the shade), but I know that’s not totally it. I am taking a little holiday next week for the first time in way too long and the hours between now until when I leave have been crawling along. As I count down to a vacation, there are a few things that usually get me in the mood. I love to plan our dinners out. Even though this will be a beach vacation, I always make a mental list of activities I’d like to check off and this time is no exception. I case you’re curious, this trip’s agenda is short and sweet: surfing, reading and getting a little color. And, believe it or not, packing also gets me in that island state of mind. Don’t get me wrong. I am a major last minute packer, like night before or day of. But, that doesn’t mean that I haven’t started thinking about it. I am hoping that my hard work at the boxing gym will have paid off when I slip into the bikinis I’ve selected. And I am (mentally) setting aside a lot of brightly colored dresses like this one here for nights out on the town. I always try to dress for the location and occasion; for me, island escapes are all about swimwear and cheerful dresses. Hopefully I’ll return with a nice little tan and we can bid adieu to my whiter-than-snow legs. Until then, I’ll just keep packing in my mind. Side note- wouldn’t it be amazing if I actually packed instead of just thinking about it? Well, I am “writing” about it, so I suppose that’s a step in the right direction, activity-wise.
