Howdy' y'all!

We're baaaack! We had a BLAST in Nashville - this was one of the best vacations I've ever taken!

I really think this is the best picture to sum up Nashville. Right?
I can't wait to recap everything, but I haven't had a chance to get all my pictures in one place yet, so I'm not going to do it just yet. Let me just say this: we did not let some rain torrential downpours stop us from having ANY fun. We busted out the umbrellas and ate, drank, and sang our way all around town. C & I just keep looking at each other and saying, "That was FUN." ...because it was! That doesn't seem like a descriptive-enough word, but that's really what it was. The whole trip was fun!

It's back to work for C and I today, and I, for one, am definitely feeling some post-vacation blues. I hate that our time away seemed like it went by so fast. I'm pretty sure we could have spent two full weeks in Nashville and not felt like we'd seen and done everything there was to do. We were happy to get home to our own bed and our own shower last night, and Mac the Cat was very happy to see us - I think he thought we'd abandoned him! Never fear, kitty - the humans always come home. I am plugged into a country music station on Pandora, though, and I'm trying to extend my carefree, relaxed attitude for as long as I can. I feel refreshed and recharged after some time away - that is definitely one benefit of being completely unplugged from work for a few days. It's been a while since I took paid time off and actually didn't do ANY work while I was away - I must admit, it was nice. It's good to be reminded sometimes that even the "urgent" things really can wait.

Anyway! Can't wait to "show" you around Nashville over the next few days - there is lots of food, drinking, music, and country music coming your way, as well as some fitness. In case you were wondering, I did rather well with staying on track exercise-wise while we were gone. I'm proud of myself! Proof that you don't have to abandon your normal habits when on vacation - just be flexible! It's back to the regular grind today though - I'm getting my diet and my fitness routine back on track. The next few days will definitely be consisting of laundry, salads, and regular gym time - it's back to normal life around here. Sigh. Take me back to Nash-Vegas!
