Since signing up for eHarmony, I have noticed there are A TON of single people out there and MOST of those people are passionate about travel and learning about new cultures. It isn’t that I don’t enjoy traveling to new places. New cultures are very interesting and I love learning about them. But…I don’t feel wanderlust. One vacation a year is plenty.
I love the mundane, ordinary, vanilla flavored days. Spending two hours watching my kid jump of a diving board, swim to the end, and repeat. Rides to the park. Trips to the store that end up costing more than they should. Blogging on the couch while my creative genius builds with his Legos. These days never get old. I love every minute of these vanilla flavored days.
I have a life that I don’t need a vacation from. Maybe I don’t have an adventurous heart. Maybe I get enough travel through the books I read. Or maybe teaching and parenting are filled with enough unexpected challenges, I don’t need to look for more. Whatever the reason, I love these ordinary days!
