Surrender. Let Go. My mantras for this trip. My father passed away 3.5 years ago, and this trip has been so meaningful because we did things he enjoyed (Narrow Gauge train ride in Durango), reconnected with some of his friends from his youth and in college - Dick, Ed, Tom) and explored new places along with places we have been. While the freedom of being off the grid and on the open road has been amazing, reconnecting with friends has been the best. Never miss an opportunity to spend time with loved ones and explore new places Grief is incredibly personnel and a rollercoaster. Within a short period of time, I lost my dad and my beloved Maltese Leland. A lot of changes in relationships and traditions have occurred within the years following my dad's death. I'm giving myself permission to let go and am excited about my next chapter. New experiences and traveling are all about losing oneself and rediscovering oneself simultaneously
I'll pass on the wine (it's the hubby's) but absolutely not on my @aromaflage. The green beach flies are out en masse, but so far, so good thanks to my bottle of Aromflage spray. Bug bites can be seriously nasty...and ruin an outdoors experience. @aromaflage to the rescue!
