Are vacations overwhelming to anyone else? It's like you sandwich "relaxing" between scrambling to get ready/work ahead and then again trying to catch up on work/house chores.
Regardless—I had a BLAST last week.
We chose to drive all night from St. Louis to Maryland (WHAT were we thinking?!). It's like I was in college (young and dumb). Somehow I recovered with only a 4 hour nap and then spent an incredible afternoon on the beach in Ocean City.
The main purpose of the trip was a wedding, which was simply lovely. Held at the Mount Airy Mansion, where George Washington's daughter was also married. The same boxwood bushes still guard the entrance. Crazy.
Another highlight of the trip was sailing in the Chesapeake Bay. I've never been on a sail boat and OH how relaxing and fun it was. I wouldn't mind making it a regular activity. We stopped by USNA in Annapolis and walked around the harbor. Then also spent a night out at the National Harbor with all the wedding attendees. So fun.
Hours spent with my love. Hours relaxing & enjoying life. Hours getting to know family.
Time well spent.
Do I have any DC area readers? Or East Coast fans? Hard to believe this summer is coming to an end soon!
