It's no secret - since the very beginning of 2010, I have been a working fool. While working a full-time job at the college, I decided to start my own photography business, intern at a local publishing company as a photographer/photo editor, continue to volunteer most Saturdays with Glynn County Animal Services as a volunteer dog photographer, and now I am also rehearsing to perform the role of Gladys in a local musical production of The Pajama Game. Add in there the passing of someone very close to me and my middle sister's beautiful wedding, and it's been a very full year. While I am not complaining by any means - I am super blessed to have had much continued success in all avenues and many wonderful opportunities - I have definitely been running myself hard.
So when Jason and I booked our upcoming vacation, it was the breath of sanity I had been needing to keep me on course!
Coming up in a few months, we are packing up the dogs in the truck and driving to a beautiful cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains, where we will sleep in, lounge around, take some leisurely strolls on the mountain trails, build fires in the wood-burning fireplaces on the deck and in the living room, sip some wine, and completely relax. Ahh...just typing all of that has got me in a comfortable state. I cannot wait - this is just the thing I / we have been needing!
Our cabin is rented out by Blue Sky Cabin Rentals. They are highly recommended and have excellent customer service. Their cabins are pet-friendly, they do not charge extra for four-legged family members, and pet beds and food dishes are supplied, also at no additional cost. And...the cabins are INCREDIBLE! Check them out for yourself.
So as I face a few more very hectic next months, I feel much better knowing that just on the horizon is the vacation of my dreams. Check back for images from our retreat!
