The Rain In Spain Is Mostly In the Plain (Or Gibraltar)

I know I’ve been behind on posting all of my photos from Spain, but I was being selfish. And mostly lazy. I wanted to relish in the memories of driving all over the place and talking about it with friends and family. Now I’m back to reality, and wanting to be partially productive in documenting the fun stuff in life from time to time. I’ve also been away because I received a small journal with Audrey Hepburn on the cover from my boyfriend and wanted to go old school for a while with my latest musings and rants.

We’ve been seeing a lot of our friends over the last couple of weeks after the holidays and it’s been fun to catch up and get out of the house. I spent all of my  holiday break (Thanksgiving and Christmas) on the couch sick, and in recovery mode to ensure I didn’t sound like death when I had to go back to work. I received three snuggies for Christmas this year because I’m always cold! One of them is an electric snuggie, but I use it mostly as a bed warmer. It has a timer and automatically turns off after an hour so it’s perfect to fall asleep with it on.

Enough about my snuggies! On to Spain!

Spain, Here I Come!

Craft Camera Cozy

In two weeks I will be traveling outside the U.S. for the first time in my life!

It has taken me a long time to get here, and I’ve tried in the past to travel but I was never able to get things together to make it happen. I always convinced myself something else was
more important. School, money, work, family, you name it and it took my attention away from what I had planned for myself, and I convinced myself I would never be able to afford to take some time off to experience the world.

The big day is around the corner and I’m excited. I got myself a new digital camera, reading up on the places I want to visit (Seville, Granada, Malaga, and Ronda), getting my cash exchanged in to Euros, hotels and flights confirmed. Everything seems to be falling in to place for once and it feels good.

Everything might not be perfect at the moment, but for once I feel like I have control over what I want to do with my life and nothing can stand in the way of my happiness.

I’m really proud of myself for finally being able to do something like this, and I hope it’s not the last I last time I try.

Here’s to trying.
