Hi friends, hope all is well! It is Monday morning here, and my gosh I have a case of the Monday’s. I’m generally not like this, but I’m blaming today’s Monday blues on two things:
1) This is my first day back to class after “winter” break
2) My parents vacation has ended and they have gone back home : – (
It’s hard to believe how quickly time flies when you’re having fun. Exactly two weeks ago, we were just picking them up at the airport and it honestly feels like yesterday! Oh how I wish I could turn back time. As I look through my pictures, I truly can’t believe how much we did just two weeks, and how much fun we had. I must admit I was very worried that my parents would have a hard time adjusting here. Between the 24 hours of flying and the outrageous heat, I thought they might never want to return, so I’m extremely relieved to say I was wrong. They both declared this “their best vacation ever.” The time I spent with them was two of the most memorable weeks of my life, and I’m forever grateful that they came all the way here to see me. Love you Mom and Dad!
Since I took well-over 300 pictures in the last two weeks (clearly I am camera obsessed and have a slight problem), I’ll just share some of my favorites with you for now. Some of the key highlights included: Holding koala’s, petting and feeding kangaroos, touring Sydney Opera House, watching fireworks in Darling Harbour, eating gelato almost daily, visiting the aquarium, and much more. It was truly two memorable weeks.
P.S. Thank you so much for your kind words and prayers for my dear friend Michelle and for the people of Boston. Michelle has had her third (and hopefully final) surgery, and while she is still in the hospital, she is on the road to recovery. Please continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
I’m feeling 100x better after writing this post…one of the reasons why I love writing so much! Such.great.therapy! In the next few days, I’ll be back with a full Sydney recap of our long-weekend there, too. Hope you have a fantastic start to your week!
What do you do to beat the Monday blues? How was your weekend?
