Two Week Wrap Up...





Last fall my sister excitedly decided she was going on vacation in the spring and when she told me she was going to Europe, I was envious. I didn't want to intrude because I knew she was going to visit a friend from college but secretly I wanted to tag along. And then miraculously (and because we're freakishly close), she asked me to go. At first, I jumped at the offer but realistically, I didn't think I could afford it so I initially said no. After saving what I could and my parents encouraging me to go, I decided to take a break from work and jet set across the Atlantic. It was nerve wrecking to say the least, I hadn't taken a vacation in at least seven years. After college and exhaustively searching for a job, I dove head first into my first real job and was overly studious in grad-school. And not to say I don't love my work because I do, but I never took a break (including many lunch breaks) and I burned myself out pretty quickly. Leaving work was going to be extremely hard for me! In the end, I'm so grateful that my people - my family, my guy and friends all said I needed to go. So I did and I loved every minute of it. And don't worry I have plenty of content to share about my trip, this is just the first of many to come!!! Happy Monday :)
