It’s true….this year I celebrated the start to a whole new decade. I was completely freaked out – not so much because of the whole turning 30 thing (though it does sound weird to say)….but because ALL OF A SUDDEN I am 30. The past 10 years have gone by SO quickly that I’m worried in the blink of an eye I’ll be 40…Life is going so quickly and I want to make sure I REALLY enjoy it….remember it….and love it.
I really think that is going to be the best phase of my life (and yes i thought that when I turned 20…and yes it was true, I did get married and have our 2 kids in that time – among other awesome experiences)…and I wanted to do something to start it off with a bang.
So here’s what I did – my cousin and I and our three kids (my two and her one) took off on a three week adventure to California and had a FABULOUS time!!! Despite having weather that is unusually cold for California, we spent our time in t-shirts and flip flops, welcoming any and all shocked faces and questions – it really was nice weather for us.
In total – through three weeks of traveling, we drove over 52 hours (not including stops) and 3314.67 miles.
Wanna know where we went? That’s the best part and I have been so excited to blog about it…the hotels, the activities, the beaches, the spontaneity – this was a seriously fabulous way to ring in this new decade of my life – I jokingly called this my *mid-life crisis vacay #1* making room for many more.
