I will be heading out of town for the fourth of July. I am feeling much better and am no longer contagious so it's time to get out of the house and head out on a road trip to good ole' Illinois. I will be staying at a friends parent's home where we will enjoy lounging at the pool, doing a little shopping, some hiking, and of course relaxing.
I was a little hesitant to go as sometimes I can be a home-body but then I remembered a quote I read by the lovely Sabrina Ward Harrison in her book Brave On the Rocks:
"If you don't go, you don't see."
So that gets me thinking...if I don't see then I won't know and if I don't know then I won't experience wonderful things! So that is why I said yes to going and I will always try to apply this philosophy when it comes to travel.
Thanks for all of your comments and sharing this week. I am really enjoying my blog lately. It's like a home away from home, a home that lives in a screen, full of friends and strangers who strangely like hearing about my day to day meanderings.
Be back next Monday or Tuesday!
