Free Write: Travelin' Mama

Yes'm - that's been me the last few weeks.

Minus this one.

I went to New York. Then to Maine. Then back to New York on the way home.

And then I came home and here I am.

It's been a weirdly longish and shortish week - being home without my loved ones nearby.

I did lots of stuff on my travels. I'm kind of opting for pictures to share them with you - since you probably think - yeah yeah - she traveled - okay. Lah-di-dah.



I went home with my daughter. We stayed at my mom's. We spent some time with family and took a long walk together - enjoying the summer night near the water - sweating way too much - and logging over ten thousand steps on my Vivofit.

And capturing this sunset.

After some time in Brooklyn and a few 1-day conferences in Manhattan I had time with friends and family. And food. Loads of amazing, delicious, incredible NY food. See?

* I also tossed in a quick pic of the hotel room I stayed in for Type-A NYC. Cozy beds worked perfectly. I just wish I would have had more time with my roomie Christina of WELL, in THIS House. *

My husband joined us and our whole family headed up to Maine to spend time with the in-laws after NYC. That's another post in and of itself, so I'm going to stop here with my pseudo-free-write and share post for the weekend. And next time I'll toss up some pictures from Maine so you can see how beautiful it was there, too, and how much fun we had with family. Sometimes I wish I could simply teleport my family to my house - and/or - teleport myself with my husband and daughter to visit family and life would be so much simpler, easier, happier and just plain better. It'd be pretty awesome if I could have NYC pizza delivered tonight instead of Papa John's AGAIN.

Sigh. C'est la vie, right? Or something.

See you tomorrow with a great book recommendation. So make sure you come back around - you're not going to want to miss it.

* I'm going to link up my free write w. Jaime this week, even though I'm not really doing a complete stream of consciousness kind of post. I think she'll be okay with that, though. *

  1. I'm totally cool with you linking up whenever you like!! I miss New York, but I have the travel. I wish NY and NC were so much closer in distance. It would be nice to have pizza (and other foods) on a whim. Like Buffalo wings. I could go for good Buffalo wings (and not what I find in my city.)


Comments are like air to a writer.

So please - say something - help me BREATHE!
