And then, just as I finally felt a little more back in the game, we flew down for a vacation to Jamaica. Clearly when we booked the trip, I had no idea I would be signing a new lease on a new space in January (and opening it Feb 26th... come on out 7-10 pm. if you are in the area!)... And I did feel super guilty about leaving... for about 17 hours and then I got over it and decided to just have fun.
And fun it was.

There was a group of 6 of us that went together and as much as I love little getaways with Matt, I think all inclusives are way better with a group. It's kinda hard to put into words exactly how amazing this getaway was... Jamaica is a beautiful country, the weather is just the right temperature to hang outside all day without feeling like you might actually hate the sun and the people are so kind and welcoming. The resort was both relaxing and high energy. Not sure that makes sense... But I have never danced so much in a week and I have never written so few to-do lists. As a chronic list maker, this was a beautiful thing.
It also helped that my friends are pretty awesome. And by pretty awesome I mean, really awesome. When you are with fun people, you can make any time a good time. Quote that, reference me...

In return I left a few things in Jamaica. I gave my baseball cap to one of our new friends down there because apparently Blue Jays hats are a hot commodity... who knew? I also lost a favourite bracelet when I did a little cliff jumping (Me? Heights? What!). And I left my favourite bathing suit drying on the inside door handle of the bathroom! I loved my Triangl top mix and matched with my super favourite high-waisted Victoria's Secret bottoms (size up, it's a really sturdy material)...:( I guess I either need to re-order the bathing suit or... just go back to Jamaica.
*no doubt I missed spectacularly actually. My volleyball skills are all just good intentions.
