Ever feel like you are going to combust if something in your life doesn’t change, even if it is a change of pace for a short little time? I think I may have hit that point. The other day, while I was at work, my manager told me I need to take a vacation. He is a little concerned that I may lose it since I have this really bad habbit of not leaving the office. However, I can’t go anywhere until February due to crazy deadlines. I am okay with that because you know what that means?! I have time to plan something fantastic! Now, the question is where on earth does one go? The options seem endless, well because they are. I love Europe and loved going there last year by myself, but I am not sure that I really want to do that again – there is something about getting to travel and experience beauty with others that I want to make sure I do next time I head over to the other side of the pond. Though, I sure do love Paris…especially this little place called Laduree…
The default option, and I by no means think that is a bad thing in this case, would be New York. Naturally, as it is my favorite city and it has been awhile since I have been able to go out there. Plus, when I left my last job part of my going away gift was a gift certificate to Magnolia’s Bakery – and well, that only leaves me with two options NYC or LA need to be in my near future so I can cash in on that and all the amazingness that is awaiting me. Seriously, Next to macaroons cupcakes are my favorite. It is the perfect size, and you get to eat the whole little cake – no worries of messing up the way you cut the cake since you are eating the whole thing (I know it may be a little weird, but cupcakes are a work of art and if I am going to destroy part of it by consuming it, I might was well destroy the whole thing by enjoying the whole piece).
And with NYC in February, I could make my trip be conviently be from the 10-17th because then I would get to be there for the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. We are talking every little fashionista’s dream come true. The tents filled with the 2011 fall fashion of so many amazing designers, and the streets filled with fabulous dresses and some maybe trying a little too hard – either way great people watching. I may be convincing myself as I type…
Or there is always going back to Cali to soak up some sun, which would be extremely needed in blistering cold February.
So, friends, where shall I go to break free from MN for a bit? Where do you dream of going next when you hit the point where you need to get out of here?
Thankful it is almost the weekend (and sort of is for me because I worked crazy hours early in the week!) and then I will get a brief break.
