I have a lot going on these days behind the scenes…putting pieces of a puzzle together to make something very important and exciting happen.   I’m only missing one part of the picture, but I know it is going to all come together very soon.  Have you ever just had a gut feeling that something was the right thing to do?  That’s how I feel right now about my near future.  It’s a little hard to contain my excitement, but I need to hold off on the celebrating until I get all my ducks in a row.  And most of them are in line as we speak.  🙂

Another exciting thing happening in April is my sister’s wedding in Santorini, Greece.  I can’t wait to set foot on the plane… that’s always when my vacation begins.  My brain turns off, and all my cares are left behind in the dust.  I learned over the weekend from my friend Laura (who is an international flight attendant) that the beaches of Oia (where we will be staying) are basically nude.  Ha!!!  The weather will be nice and warm, but too bad the water will be frigidly cold.  I believe that we have a pool at the place we are staying.  I’ve never been to a nude beach… so that will be a new experience.  And who knows, maybe I will partake! The things I am looking forward to the most are experiencing the culture, eating authentic Greek food, drinking wine (which I hear is hit and miss) and just being present in one of the most beautiful places in the world.  We only have 3 full days there, and one is the wedding itself, so time will have to be spent wisely.

This week I have a whole bunch of nothin’ planned… and it’s just what the doctor ordered.  I am going to take advantage of this time to eat well and exercise.  I want to start working out my upper body again since I’ve been neglecting it for the past 5 months or so.  It is so wonderful having those few extra daylight hours in the evening to be outside.  I’m turning the little alley outside of my mini house into my own personal fitness center.  😀  I want to start doing sprint repeats out there, as well as some meditation before calling it a night.  Doesn’t that sound wonderful?

The future bride-to-be doing a little research. 🙂
