“Laughter is an instant vacation.” – Milton Berle
I have had THE BEST 24 hours! I am beaming and grinning from ear to ear. The past 24 hours have been what summer should be: carefree, spontaneous, and one or two “bad” decisions (not that bad actually- don’t freak out mom and dad!) all spent with friends that you haven’t seen in awhile!
Yesterday evening was spent hanging out with a few friends that I haven’t talked to in a long time! We had a few drinks and it was an overall good time!
Then this morning, we decided to go on a little spontaneous road trip. So we packed up the car with water, Gatorade, sandwiches, the four of us, and two dogs and hit the road! We had one rule- NO USE OF ANY TECHNOLOGICAL DEVICES LIKE CELL PHONES! (Cameras were fine! )
Our destination was the Suwannee River State Park about an hour and a half drive from Jacksonville. We drove and drove…
Even though we got lost, we used the time to stretch our legs and let the dogs run around…
We even found some horses!
The “no technology” rule was broken for 30 minutes as we used my phone to navigate to the correct location! Once we finally made it to the park, it was a perfect escape!
We laughed, swam, played with the dogs, ate our crappy sandwiches, and overall had a great time. Yes the giant horse flies SUCKED, but it was nice to just get away from the world for a day! I loved not having my phone attached to me every second!
Sometimes I think we forget to savor the simple things in life. I always have some sort of device to connect with the outside world, but today, it was just me and my three friends.
I’ll say it again- I have had THE BEST 24 hours! My fingers are crossed that another day like this is just around the corner.
What is your favorite way to just escape from the world?
