The Summer of Vacations by Kristin Wallace

Sunset cruise
More accurately, this is the summer of packing & repacking for me. First, there was a family vacation in the Florida Keys that included my parents, brother & sister-in-law, and my niece. The Keys is all about the water. The beaches are okay, but the real draw is water sports: snorkeling, diving, fishing, jet skis, paddle boards, etc. We managed to do most of those things. I even got up close and personal with some dolphins. We got in the water and were able to touch them and see how they’re trained.

Made a few new friends
This week I head to Orlando for a few days of R&R as well as a Type I Diabetes Conference. In two weeks it’s northward bound for the Romance Writers of America (RWA) national conference. This year, the conference is in New York, which I love. Such an exciting city and it’s a chance to catch up with people I only see once a year. Plus, there is always the chance I could wind up in an elevator with Nora Roberts or Susan Elizabeth Phillips. Oh yes….and fabulous writing workshops, networking and so much more.

I fly home from the conference and take off the next day to Atlanta with my mom to visit my aunt, uncle & cousins. Literally, the next day! For someone who is a homebody, that’s a lot of traveling. Most of it I probably wouldn’t be able to do except that I am now SELF-EMPLOYED!!! That’s right, it’s been about a month and a half since I left my ad agency job and I am SO HAPPY!!! Since I no longer have the day job I can take off whenever I want…and if I have to get in some work I can do that too with this nifty device called a laptop.

I’ll be sure to post from pics from the upcoming trips in my next post on August 8. I think I might be done with the traveling by then!
