How to have the best vacation, ever

The suitcases are finally unpacked, the laundry is done. The only evidence of my trip is my bridesmaids dress in a pile on the floor waiting to be dry cleaned and the new bromeliad hanging in my bathroom.

I'm back from a two week vacation: one week spent in Jacksonville, Florida, and another week in Austin, Texas. Jacksonville was for my big sister's wedding, Austin was for funsies. Not that I didn't have a great time in Jacksonville, because let the photo booth evidence show, I really did.

All good things come to an end

After many years of nomadic life   I have settled into a comfortable life in a familiar area.  I know my way around without a GPS,  I have a go-to Chinese restaurant for lazy Sunday dinners, and  until recently, I had a trusted person for my personal care services. But one by one, in the short span of two months, they've begun to slip away. It started with my hair stylist.
