This year, finances are tight and probably most of my vacation time will be stay-cation time. I love stay-cays!
Basically, I'm a home body and any time I can hang out at home, especially if I can do some kind of organizational project, is golden to me.
These words need to be at the forefront of any of my vacation planning, because I'm very prone to being out of balance. I have to remember I'm supposed to be resting. So, in order for a stay-cation to be a success, in my mind, it must be a balance of accomplishing something and resting. Ideally, I'd like to work hard at my home for two days, go to the lake for 3 days, and leave the weekends open for whatever strikes my fancy.
It rarely happens that way, but a girl can dream!
When I say I want to go to the lake, I mean I hike around the lake, take photos and then veg out sitting lakeside with a good book, a notebook, my phone, some snacks, a sweet tea and Hubby. There is just something so relaxing about being in nature. I can think. I can hear from God. It's quiet. Usually, there is a breeze, It's beautiful to view, and I can't clean anything.
My summer vacay is scheduled to begin on July 1. I'm praying for good weather, no appointments, and nothing pressing.
What is your idea of a fun vacation?
