Close My Eyes

Do you ever have one of those days where you wish you could just close your eyes and transport yourself to wherever comes to mind? This morning I opened my iPhoto and this was one of the first pictures I saw...

Our condo out in the Liwa desert, UAE


Don't I look happy?

So today as I sit in a dreary, cloudy, chilly midwestern state that I'm not all that fond of, I'm wishing I could close my eyes and appear here...to sunshine, escape, and anonymity. Yes, that sounds nice.

It has been about 3 months...right on schedule. My traveling urge is back in full force.

I know what you mean; I just got back from vacation and I could totally be transported again, at any instant, swimsuit or not!

Warm weather can't come soon enough. We only have a month 'til we get to travel, although I guess not to a warm desert. This weekend I want to talk about what I can do to help plan. :) Love ya!

Em. Totally! This post didn't show up on my blog reader btw. Weird...
I long for that comfy bed, my toes sinking into beautiful sand, late nights out with my sister on the porch, having people bring me food and fluff my bed and wash my towels. Hmm. Next year?
