Pretending I'm Happy To Be Back, Minus The Pretending And Happy Part.

And just like that, vacation is officially over. If they made emoticons to properly display how somebody feels once vacation is over I would enter those here, but rather I'll just keep pounding my head on the desk. Same/Same. California was one of the better (if not the best) vacations we have had. Ample amount of relaxation plus ample time actually doing "stuff", including but not limited to: eating, drinking, falling madly in love with the ocean a million times over, drinking, eating, and so on. It would be foolish of you to think that I won't be posting three thousand and forty pictures of our vacation so no worries, I won't let you be a fool and will post exactly that many. Starting now. Enjoy the show while I go do the 62nd load of laundry in this house. I swear. I am moving to a nudist colony soon. 

ps. I am thinking of writing a blog post about how to travel well while on a budget...anybody out there interested? If enough of you say yes, I will write it. If enough of you say no, I will most likely still write it. 


And on that gem of a city landscape, I will save the rest (only three thousand and thirty-four more to go!) for another day. Like I said, laundry and banging my head on the cement is calling my name. ttyl. lylas.

  3. Just in the planning and prep stages of our European vaca for August, but oh so excited! I'm debating taking a DSLR or just my iPhone with me for pics. Were your gorgeous pics from your phone or with a "real" camera? Can't wait to see more pics! Also, traveling while on a budget would be great!

  13. Yes! You should do that post on traveling on a budget. Better yet, you should make one specifically on international travel on a budget, since it's so expensive but it seems like everyone wants to travel abroad.

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
