I’m Back

What a fun and emotionally tiring week. I am happy to be home. I just downloaded the pictures I took from the cruise to my computer and I realize how few of them I took. I didn’t take any pictures of me except one when I was sitting on a tour boat in Miami on my last day.


And of sand between my green toes:


I had a good time. I didn’t think of my parents and the mess in my life much until I got to Miami after the cruise and Dad called me 3 times. Secret Sister told me he talked about me a lot while I was gone.


The boat, The Majesty of the Seas, while big to me, was a small cruise ship.

I was a bit obsessed with taking ocean pictures. I love this picture.


Look at the color.



I also had a few drinks.


The margarita was good!


I really liked the Hog’s Breath in Key West. Someday I will get back there.


I am still in a bit of a haze from the trip. My mind is playing tricks with me and to be honest, I don’t feel good about myself at all. I feel like I need a bit of a cry. It was hard being “up” all week and I am feeling the down now. Towards the end of the trip, I was my insecure and reserved self. It is hard to describe that feeling of not fitting in. I know it is all in my head but I can’t stop it at the moment.

I will post more tomorrow. I didn’t take many pictures but I will post them anyways. I have discovered Picnik and who knows what I will do to the pictures.


  1. wonderful write up. I enjoyed reading and the pics you took.
    I often find the down side feelings present on my vacations. <3

  2. I'm glad you managed to escape and have a good time. I can completely relate to the exhaustion of being 'up'. It's a sort of false 'up' - enjoying yourself but the worries still lurk somewhere. Have a good cry. I find that helps. Welcome back :-) x P

  3. Its so very normal to feel a bit low after a high. I love the pics :)

    What the heck was in the hogs breath? LoL

  4. I am a Florida girl myself, so I love all things Key West, it is seriously like being in a different world. I second the other commenters, a good cry feels so good sometimes. Go for it!

    PS- It was great to meet you at brunch yesterday. Hopefully we will chat a bit more next time!

  5. Great pictures, Jen. The drinks look so yummy. I'm glad you were able to disconnect for a little while. I hope you're feeling better today.


I love your comments!
