Refresh, Please


Hi Guys!  I’ve been away for a while and I’m sure you missed me (just kidding, I bet no one even noticed!)  My husband took some time off of work this last month.  We had been planning his time away from work for almost the last year and I had big plans for blogging.  However, a few days into his leave, he decided to turn off his work cell phone (which usually rings at all hours of the day and night) if I turned off the computer.  No facebook, no blog, no twitter, no email.  At first I may have gone through a bit of withdrawal, but we both quickly realized that life isn’t happening on a screen.  We disconnected to reconnect as a family. 

And that’s certainly what we did!  We’ve spent the last few weeks inDubaiandThailandhaving the time of our lives.  InDubaiwe went on a desert safari (complete with dune bashing and a Bedouin style bbq) and played in the snow at Ski Dubai.  I love that that the first time my kids have seen or played in snow was in the middle of the desert.   InThailandwe rode elephants, visited a temple, traveled by Tuk Tuk and enjoyed some of the most amazing food.   

But alas, all good things must come to an end, but at least we return to reality refreshed and reconnected!


p.s. I was able to have some fun with my camera while we were gone aside from just snap shots of the family.  If you want to check out some of my pictures, click over to my Flickr page!

Chef and Steward - We did the very same thing when we went on vacation. It is easy to forget that real life happens off-screen. Happy you were able to strike that balance. I am sure you all felt rejuvenated and reconnected. Sounds like a really fun trip!
