We just returned from a very relaxing, very warm trip to the gulf coast of Florida. We planned this trip way back in late winter to celebrate my Mom’s retirement. As usual, life leading up to the trip was chaotic and I was up late most nights wrapping up projects and meeting deadlines. It almost felt like it wasn’t worth it. To go on vacation, that is. The stress that surrounded my days and evenings made me question why we were even going on this trip.
