I had such a relaxing few days with Mom. She's so easy to travel with and we both love to lie in the sun for hours, swim or go for walks on the beach. It's funny, in high school, I found myself always hoping I'd be very different, but now, I find more pleasant similarities then I would have thought.
I made one big life decision on this trip. I want to live somewhere warm year-round. Where I can wake up and see the sun and walk on the beach and sail on my sailboat. This decision is something nice to hold onto, a nice vision of the future, since I often feel adrift in my career choice.
My three days with mom were such a healthy, needed change of pace. I know I'll come back to the memory of us chatting on the balcony overlooking the sunset often.
