Everyday Inspirations


~ a better you ~

A very small sampling of some of my extended family members, with whom I spent a week on the Oregon coast.

Ah, vacation! That blessed time where you get to leave behind the same old routine, job, house, food.

I love that vacations also offer a chance to improve relationships. I know couples who take vacations to spice things up, best friends who travel as a yearly tradition, and families that get away to improve their bond. Vacations are an almost magical way to discover new aspects of yourself (and to allow others to discover you as well). You're more likely to relax and open up--and so will your travel mates. I love learning new things about the people I love when we're away from home. It reminds me of how much I adore them and how lucky I am to have them in my life.

Best of all, you don't need to go far away to strengthen your bond. Taking a day trip to a nearby place will also make a difference. How do you and your loved ones get away from it all?
