My Last Day of Vacation

Today, Tuesday June 19th is my last day of vacation.

I mean, like a real bona fide freakin’ vacation.

I flew somewhere and rented a car and everything.

Honestly, this is my first real vacation in 10 years.

Sounds unreal I know, but it is the truth.

Up until now I have had multiple (times 100) staycations (which still totally rock in my world), BUT a real vacation….yummy and for real, thank you God.

I met my sis and family in Lake Tahoe, CA last Thursday and I returned home on Father’s Day.

I honestly have not felt this sense of freedom and gratitude and awe… in…I don’t know…10 years.

I cannot even explain how peaceful and refreshed and grateful I feel.

Vacations really are good for the soul.

I have the time to take another vacation later this year, a solo trip, me and God, exploring places that I have dreamed about seeing, like I have done in the past.  Alone.

When I return to work on Wednesday, I may be slammed (most likely) with all that is wrong or overdue or needs attending…but in this moment in time, and tomorrow, I am so happy and fulfilled, I could cry.

Tears of happiness.

I am more than thankful for the break and I am returning refreshed and stress-free.

Until I fire up my computer at work. hahaha

But then again, that is what is to come on Wednesday.

Today, Tuesday, I will remain present and grateful.

Side note, I received a message just now from WordPress.

Today is my “anniversary.”

I have been blogging for 7 years.

Pretty cool in my world.

I “clean house” every few years blogging wise (and in real life) because I am always striving to continue creating a better story for myself.

Another side note, using terms like always and never are signs of slight deception. hahaha

But for real, whether it is always or never – I do strive to create an evolving, better and new story for myself and my life.

I hope you do as well.

BTW.  The above pic is now my work and home computer background pic.

Holy Bleep!  I am a Princess, a Real Life Princess!

I have not watched a Royal wedding before.

Not start to finish.

I did not watch Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding even though I thought/think they are a great match and are very much in love.

In the past, I have been more than happy to watch the highlights on the nightly news shows.

And I did not set out to watch Harry and Meghan’s wedding today either.

I woke up at 5:30 am, like normal, and turned on the TV.

And there it was – streaming live.

I thought I’d have it on in the background and go about things on my computer.

I was wrong.

I was sucked in like almost everyone else, and happily so.

I didn’t get a thing done on my computer because I was hooked to my TV for 4.5 hours.

4.5 hours!

At times, I had tears streaming down my face, and I even found myself thinking….I want to get married.

Um.  That is unheard of in my world.  I am not the marrying type.  At least that has not been a “goal” of mine to date.

And that thought didn’t just pop into my head (and maybe even into my heart this time too) because of today’s ceremony and all of the regal and “royalness” going on.

It stemmed from the connection Meghan and Harry share.

These two people together are very special on so many levels, in my opinion.

I think they are going to do a lot of good in the world together.

I have never been married, so I am not sure I really have a wise say in the matter, but, I really do think that getting married in your 30s (or later) is perfect.

In doing so, each person has had the time to “live a life” on their own, as well as define who they are.  And in doing so, each person really does have something to share with the other.

The fact that Meghan and Harry are in love, for real, wow, that makes this union just about perfect for/to me.

Not to mention the fact that I would love to date (and/or marry) an English or Australian man just to hear him talk! hahaha

Now that really has been a goal of mine for as long as I can remember, not the marrying part, but the being in a loving relationship with an English or Australian man. hahahaha

For real.

I could listen to him talk about…just about almost anything,…and I could do so for…um, just about forever.

Meghan and Harry are changing the British monarchy without even trying.  They are changing it by being who they each are, and by being in love and uniting.

But.

I could not help but to think on many occasions during the event, Meghan and her mom, at some point or another (or many), had to have the thought…

Meghan: Holy Bleep!  I am a Princess, a Real Life Princess!

Doria (Meghan’s mom): Holy Bleep!  My daughter is a Princess, a Real Life Princess!

I am sure they don’t cuss, but that is how it played out in my head.

Meghan walking herself down the aisle was priceless and powerful.

You go girl.

For Real.

If I ever get married, I am walking (or rolling) myself down the aisle.

I  really do wish them the best of the VERY best in their life together.

I look forward to seeing what they create together in the years to come.

PS – Her mom has a nose ring, teaches yoga and is a social worker….um, that totally rocks.  Plus some!

Another PS – Meghan really isn’t a Princess.  She has become…Her Royal Highness Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.

But still.

She is now royalty, and that is absolutely amazing!

There is NO way she or her parents, back in the day, ever really thought….You know, one day I think (my daughter) I will straight up become royalty.

God Bless America.

God Bless the Queen.

But in all seriousness, God Bless us all (as in the world, all religions, all colors, all anything).  We all could use it.

Best Wishes, and then some, to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex…
