One set of footprints

So I’ve been in Thailand for a couple days and it’s taken some time to get use to being on my own. I travelled alone many times before I met my husband but it’s been a long time since I’ve done something like this alone – over 16 years! The silence and space has been freeing but honestly, it has taken some time to get use to it. I mean, I only had to pack one bag to come here and I literally did it in 10 minutes when a normal family trip can take me a couple days to get everything sorted and organized. Even standing in line at the airport, I found myself looking to see what my youngest daughter was doing or what I had to do next until I realized I just needed to be… present and breath. It’s been wonderful.

And while I look forward to our next family trip and just regular life together, this trip I am grateful for the space, the ocean, the stars, the sunrise and only one set of footprints in the sand.

Until next time!

Only joy, only love,

I am a Canadian from Newfoundland and Labrador who has done a lot of moving around and has some pretty amazing experiences. I currently live in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada with the love of my life and partner in crime and our two beautiful and incredibly special daughters. (Totally biased but I'm cool with that). I started this blog because I wanted a space to share the people, places and things that bring me joy and give me a good laugh. Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy! Only joy, only love. Michelle xo
