This was my last week of freedom before school starts marking the end of summer. Two months is the most I have had off since I was 16-years-old. I have always had corporate jobs where you were lucky if you got two weeks! I thought in the beginning that it was so much time off and I didn’t know how I was going to fill it. Now, I realize that it isn’t that much and that I could easily fill a years worth of time off if I could. Sadly, that is not in my budget. I am incredibly grateful for this time. It has been amazing.
As a send-off to summer, I have spent the past week with my mom on the coast. We have mostly been in Brittany with a brief jaunt into Normandy to see Mont St Michel. The coast is beautiful and I have been posting way too many beach photos on facebook. I have gorged myself on seafood and crepes and relaxed into this last week of summer. I feel incredibly lucky as I get ready to embrace this next part of my journey. Merci!
