The last time I had a vacation that wasn't about family or a holiday (or both) was over six years ago. In less than 10 days, we will pack our bags and head to the Outer Banks in North Carolina for a week-long beach vacation that, quite honestly, can't come soon enough. I realized yesterday that I have been, and will be, spending the days leading up to the beach frantically obsessing about it, planning packing lists, coordinating cooking menus, and doing everything possible to not focus on this space. So, I've decided to take the month of August off. I hope that wherever you are, there's buckets of sunshine and good things happening. I will see you all in September.
