Spring time always reminds me of euphoric memories of me hanging out with my friends after school. That is until the ice cream man came around the corner. You would have thought I was a track star, since I used to take off like a bullet when I heard that famous jingle (laughs). By the time I found my mother, to ask for ice cream money, she would already have my favorite ice cream cone ready for me. My mother was smart and figured, why pay the ice cream man when I can save money and buy my own ice cream and cones.
She also had popsicles (remember the red, white, and blue one *laughs*) and other treats stored away. But of course, I could only have one a day. As an adult, I find myself still loving the same spring/summer treats. The only difference is, now I can have more than one a day … just don’t tell my mother.
Currently, my bucket list consist of 10 foreign destinations I’ve been dying to travel to. And since they’re at the top of the list, I’ve somehow forgotten to complete the three things at the very bottom of that list. Has that ever happened to you?
I thought I would’ve completed at least one of these things by now. Hey, real life happens. And instead of beating myself up about it, I’ve decided its time I check these items off my list. What’s on that list you might ask…
Well it’s just another manic Monday and truthfully, I had no desire to get up this morning. After a weekend of bliss, who’s really happy to get back to work… not I. Which is why I always have to find a way to coach myself out the bed. One day I told myself, if I didn’t get up I was going to miss out on all the chocolate in pastry shops (laughs). And somewhere in my conscious I thought, ‘Hey, I need chocolate today‘, so I proceeded to get up with a vengeance. Since I can’t use the same excuse each week, today I told myself, if I didn’t get up I’d miss out on a good deal to go to Greece.
The deal might be non-existent, but traveling to Santorini, Greece by photo with you today… was inevitable (smiles). Monday’s are hard enough, so why not take a break, sit back, and enjoy the beauty of Santorini with me.
