It's pretty obvious everyone is excited for the winter break to arrive. Ensen and Avery can barely contain themselves knowing there two weeks of fun ahead. Photo Credit: Nathan Kam
I’m on vacation! It’s a phrase I rarely ever use as a busy public relations executive where the work never seems to end, but boy does it feel good to say it. I’m on vacation!
For the next two and a half weeks my goals during the holiday break are simple. Completely disconnect from the office, avoid the temptation to check my work email, and spend some real quality time having fun with my family and friends. The first two are going to be a challenge (since I’m kind of a workaholic), but I have a feeling Ensen and Avery will keep me in check while there are at home on holiday break also.
While Kelly is busy working through the end of the month, the kids and I have already started plotting a handful of activities to keep us busy and out of the house. Of course, these plans could be sabotaged, depending upon what Santa Claus brings this Christmas. Assuming there are no curve balls, our plan is to spend quality time together learning, exploring and enjoying. Our agenda looks something like this:
My wish this holiday season is that everyone can enjoy some time off with their loved ones. I’m truly cherishing this quality time with my family and friends. Every moment I spend with Ensen and Avery is a reminder of how quickly they are growing and how important it is to savor every minute we have together. As my colleagues at the office say, “The work will still be here when you return.” They are right.
Sorry to cut this post short, but I’ve got to go. I’m on vacation! ;-)
