I feel as though I haven’t really been talking to you guys much. Yes, I have written about things we have done and places we’ve eaten, but I haven’t really written anything personal in a while now. It’s time for some reconnecting!
I think that staying in one place for a bit has made me feel stale in what to write about. My traveling spirit doesn’t do well when I am sedentary, it wreaks havoc on my creativity. I hope that you haven’t noticed my informational and not personal trend lately… But, if you had, be encouraged because I have the fire in me to reconnect with you all more than ever now. My groove is back! Hooray!
The reason that my writing “groove” is back, you ask? Well, we had a spontaneous weekend road-trip last week and it renewed my love for all that is Thailand and traveling in this amazing country! As we were driving to our destination (yep, I am leaving you hanging a little about the location, make sure to come back on Friday!), I had an epiphany that I miss you guys! I miss having posts that leave us chatting and getting to know each other better. I also have missed traveling consistently, all three of us had I think, so we made a decision that we are going to explore Thailand… one week/weekend every month we are going off on an adventure. Even just writing it here makes me tingle in anticipation for the places we will get to see and experience!
Many things have been going on here in Phuket for us. Z has started going to a preschool three mornings a week. After trying and trying to keep her little social personality fulfilled, I finally had to realize that the only way that she would be able to be around children her age was to enroll her in a preschool. Most families enroll their toddlers at age 2 or 3 years old here, so the playdates I was taking her to during the day were with much younger children. It was great for her leading/teaching spirit (she definitely gets her”bossiness” from her mama), but I could tell that she needed more stimulation than the younger crowd could give her. So here we are, she is happy and we are happy that she is, but we miss her when she is gone.
Chad has almost achieved his Advanced Diving certificate, he only needs two more dives.. does anyone want to come visit and go diving with him?
I (well, this blog really) was featured in an airline magazine thanks to an awesome friend of mine including me in a “bloggers of Phuket” project. That was pretty cool.
Well, I guess I should probably stop chatting and move onto the pictures I took this past week. We can chat more in the comments if you want to!
I hope that you will leave a comment! I really want to reconnect and say hello! Tell me about what is going on in your daily life or exciting plans for the future. If you have written a post about it recently, leave the link in the comments! Also, if you want to help me with the elance/freelance website decision, it would be so wonderful of you! Thanks everyone!
