Summer Sabbatical

New York City Summer

I’m not sure at what point did I decide to mentally take a break from my musings and from posting this past summer but alas, playtime is now over and it is time to get back to the business at hand of over sharing. Heh!

I wish, my darlings that I could say that I was off this summer doing something magnificent like touring the South of France, backpacking through Europe or dancing down under with my Australian sweethearts but no, it wasn’t anything that spectacular. I just needed to decompress from the sheer magnitude of being me and being everything to everyone. This summer was filled with family visits, a plethora of dinner parties, countless events, exhausting business trips and a staycation that was no vacation at all. Trust me when I tell you that by the time Labor Day rolled around, I wanted to run screaming from the city, leaving everyone a Dear John letter, and sending a post card from the inner bosom of some obscure resort in Tahiti. But, being the responsible wench that I am, the guilt would have had me putting down my coconut drink and leaving my little paradise behind so that I can go home to make everyone’s life organized and tidy again.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the fam and friends but once in a while I think it’s a great idea to just get away for a hot second, regroup and hit the reset button on our minds and spirit. There is nothing like a little alone time to help put a fresh face on those things that we are thankful for.

So, dear hearts, here’s to a great autumn. Salud!
