It's a Shore Thing

I have just spent the last two days on the beautiful island of St. Simons!! Anna  and I have been at the retreat center at Epworth since Thursday, and it has been an unforgettable trip!! We have shopped, ridden  bikes around the island, strolled downtown at night, gone to the beach, and ridden a Tandem bike!!! Riding a two-seater  bike has been on my bucket list forever!! And let me tell you, it is harder than it looks. You really have to be in sync with the other person. Overall, the trip has been a much needed breather from work and school, though today when I return to "real life" because I have to study. Test on Monday.  -_-...  my UC hasn't bothered me much on the trip due to me monitoring my diet (but only with Anna's help) appropriately. Praise the Lord!!!

It has been a serene reminder of how short life is, how precious every moment is and how in the biggest scheme of things there is always time to take a break. I have to give some of this credit to my father. He is a huge advocate of vacations. He is always asking me when I am going to get away and slow down and focus on something other than work and school. to be completely honest, he put the fire under my butt that I needed to follow through with the original plan. And thankfully it was another wonderful adventure!

Well, check-out is at 11:30 and it's already 10:34 and I haven't even gotten out of bed yet. Time to get up and get dressed and pack up. We've been on island time all weekend but unfortunately, it is time for me to snap out of it... Praise the Lord while it lasted!
