What’s on my Monday’s mind


  • Holiday.
  • I need one now.
  • Not in December. Not in January.
  • Now.
  • My next holiday however comes in the form of Europe which is a whole 9 months, yup, 9 months away.
  • But I can’t complain as it’s a 4 month adventure with my best friend & lover Mr M.
  • God that excites me. I don’t know how I’ll ever get through the next 9 months though.
  • Only 27 sleeps till Christmas. 27! Mr M & I have a few days off and will spend it with loved ones and friends creating new memories and relishing old.
  • Don’t you ever wish you could just pack a bag and run away now.
  • Somewhere warm, with cold beverages, large & comfy beds and long stretches of beautiful coast lines.
  • I’m craving that with my whole being at the moment.
  • Runaway.
  • Just run and don’t look back until I’ve found the place I’m looking for. Stay awhile, have a break then sneak back like I was never gone to begin with.
  • I wish jellyfish.
  • I remember being little and holidaying with the family, scuffing my knees trying to keep up with my 3 older brothers and climbing trees like it was nobodies business.
  • I feel the same anticipation and excitement today as I did 15 or so years ago when it’s time for holidays.
  • Care free spirits.
  • That’s what it’s all about.
  • Slow down, roll with the punches and make the seconds count.
  • Remember to breathe.
  • Only 9 more months.
  • But who’s counting?

Happy Monday pretty things xx

    Right now I have exactly the same feeling. I´m very busy with school and I don´t know if I can manage. 9 months will fly by very quickly and the trip to Europe will be here finally, don´t worry 🙂 xoxo Eve.h

    oh how I need to get away. At least you know when you’re going. We haven’t even made plans yet. It’s so high on the to-do list though!

    Where in Europe are you going?! I just started planning a vacation today because I was feeling the same way… San Fran and Napa Valley. Countdown is on: 5 months!

    I love how you wrote this post, it’s really inspiring,
    plus it makes me want to run down to the
    airport and hop on any plane that is headed
    to a beach destination! You are soooo lucky
    to be going on such a long vacation, I’m
    sure the months will pass crazy fast.

    My boyfriend has been in Berlin for the past month and I am so jealous of him! 9 months will fly by if you focus on what ever you’re doing right now but I have to admit, your post makes me really want to get away too.

    I’m totally aching for a vacation right now too, Anna! I also must say I think it’s pretty fitting that the amount of time until your vacation is the same as the number of months it takes to have a baby…I mean, I’m sure the amount of dreaming, saving, and planning that’s going into your big trip is making this vacation feel like your precious baby in many ways. It sounds like you have such an amazing time ahead of you! 😉 FYI, I just passed along a blogging creativity award to you on my site: http://www.cotewrites.com/blog/2011/11/inspired-blogs/

    I hope this puts a big, going-on-vacation-kinda smile on your face, my darling inspiring friend. 🙂 Wishing you a fabulous start to the week! 🙂 -Jennifer

    I can so relate to this post. I want to do the same: pack my bags and visit some beautiful places, chill and not worry about everyday things. At least I’m finishing my job on Friday and have the whole of December off before starting a new job in January – now that’s something to look forward to 😉 Hope you have a good week xo
