Savannah, Month THREE
This was our last consecutive month in Savannah. I will be returning for the month of May and October for weddings, but this was sort of the end of our beach walking, yoga loving, book reading days.
I set several intentions at the beginning of this trip and I really feel like they were all accomplished. I wanted to make yoga a daily habit. I have practiced on and off for several years but I wanted this chunk of downtime to start feeling the benefits. And it worked, I am totally hooked and have been committed to fitting this me-time into my schedule on the road and at home. I also wanted to get more comfortable with cooking and to check many books off of my reading list.
Vlad had to fly home to be with family halfway through the month whichwas a total bummer and an agoraphobic flare up, but per usual, despite lack of sleep and appetite, I survived. We don’t get the chance to spend a lot of time together back home, but after being inseparable for 75 days, dropping him off at the airport made my heart ache BAD.
After leaving Savannah I had to head down to Key West, FL for a wedding. Thankfully my very close friends were able to meet me and spend the week keeping me company and even took me snorkeling along the rock reefs where we found starfish and numerous crabs and other unique and sometimes scary little creatures. From Key West I was able to reconnect with Vlad and we spend a couple of days laying on South Beach and lounging around our amazing AirBnb treehouse. And then of course, on the way back north we couldn’t resist making a stop in Asheville for dinner, our favorite Himalayan gift shop, and sunset mountain views.
We had to return to Michigan for a few days to get some work done and pick the van up, but we will leave early next week for our road trip out to the Grand Canyon. Last year I was sick during this leg of the trip and we missed out on backpacking down into the bottom of the canyon. This has always been a goal of Vlad’s so I am really thankful that we are able to do a “makeup” trip.
We spend a lot of time and money chasing my dreams, so this coming month we will be chasing his.
