I love this. Staying at the same place for at least 2 weeks is cool, because it’s like we are floating in this dream-like lifestyle. A routine is set and it makes everything easier. It helps that we are right on the beachfront of the white sands at Miramar Beach. Truly.
Despite the very cold weather we’ve been getting lately, we are basking in the beauty of our site. Currently, we’re in a hotel to avoid the deep freeze. I didn’t want to deal with using the propane continuously to keep Meraki warm. It’s our first time to stay at a hotel since we embarked on this journey.
The WiFi is way better, that’s for sure, but we found ourselves feeling the cabin fever and anxious to get out. Oh and, the beds are amazing for jumping. It’s sorta like a mini adventure on our adventure.
I’m looking at the calendar and see that it’s already 17 days and we’re halfway through our one month long stay. Two more weeks of waking up to the sunrise, doing homeschooling, some screen time and then sitting outside on the beach with our firepit as the sun descends.
Then it’s off to Atlanta and pretty much nonstop moving until it’s time to go home. I’d be lying if I say that I’m not stressed thinking about the end of this one of a kind bliss… but, for now, we’ll just let ourselves float away in happy boredom.
I also want to share an article I wrote for the UNUM Magazine, about finding my meraki.
Special thanks to: Tricia English for publishing my raw piece and to Elise Nye for bringing me to her as well as my GIF gals for encouraging me to stay real. Love you guys.
just a mother who fled from society's constraints and is super excited to wake up to the outdoors, remain braless daily and teach her boys the art of boredom and discovery.
