In The Swing

The week away from my blog and the weekend away from my home couldn't have been more perfect. The past two months have been challenging, to say the least. Going to camp with four new and amazing friends was exactly what I needed to 'reset' myself. I enjoyed three days of not cooking, the ability to start and complete thoughts, great conversation, quiet time, and beautiful views like this:

One of the many highlights was the 'giant swing'. After being hoisted some 40 feet into a tree by a group of cheering ladies, there was a very silent moment when I had to decide to pull a cord at my waist to drop and start the ride. As I psyched myself up to pull the cord, I thought about letting go of all the things that held me up in my 36th year. I took a deep breath and let it fly.

The 'Waaaa-Hooooooo!" I let out was probably heard all the way to Canada. What a great way to start a new year.

Good for you! I am very happy for you that you took this trip. It sounds fantastic! I wish you all the best and will think for myself a little about what's holding me back! Thinking of you, Veel Liefs, Miss M.
