We survived the blizzard! In fact, it was a pretty great weekend — we didn’t have to leave the house so we got plenty of work done, drank lots of hot chocolate, and ate our way through the contents of the fridge. Which was perfect, actually, because we’re headed to Puerto Rico this afternoon.
By February, we both get to this level of stir crazy that borders on lunacy and we just need to get ourselves the heck outta Dodge. This year, in particular, I slipped into a mild seasonal depression around Christmastime. James quickly ordered one of those little blue lights, which I used while downing great amounts of St. John’s Wort. Once the sun began sticking around until 4:45 and now 5pm, everything got better. But for the past few weeks we’ve been banging our heads going, “WHERE IS IT? WHERE IS SPRING?”
Friends keep asking what we’ll be doing once we land. Scuba diving? Sightseeing? The truth is that we have absolutely no plans aside from sun bathing, spending time together, and trying a few restaurants we’ve read about. Since we’re pretty much constantly working here at home, what sounds boring to some people sounds wholly blissful to us. To be honest, we just want to be warm. Like, outside.
What’s making its way into my luggage? Not much. Here are my essentials:
(I’m not going to say much about these except that I adore them all. I’ve had the J.Crew swimsuit for years and don’t see the need to get another one. Also, even though the Baby Lips packaging (and name) makes me cringe, that stuff is the shizz if you have problem lips, like I do.)
While I’m gone, Frock Files will still be up and running! It’s Valentine’s week after all. So I hope you’ll stop by for my manly dessert (you’ll probably find it craveable too) and some ideas on planning your own budget friendly getaway. And if you’re in need of some sunshine, I promise to post plenty of it on my Instagram feed.
What are your plans for this lovely week? Whatever they are, I hope they’re full of love. xoxo
