I had such an amazing trip this last week, and now that I’m headed back home (and back to reality), I’m realizing more and more that this vacation was exactly what I needed. The timing couldn’t have been better – I had just finished up some huge projects (one in particular that I can’t share yet, but am super excited about), was starting to feel completely drained (creatively speaking), and I turned 30.
I’m feeling full of energy and new ideas, that I hope to start implementing asap. It’s kind of amazing what starts running through your mind when you allow yourself to just unplug for a day…or recharge for a week.
It has reminded me that travel is really important for me, both personally and professionally. The time away from my normal day to day environment has made me think about things in a totally different way. And has resulted in countless emails to myself (yes, I email myself usually instead of just adding ideas to my notes app) with ideas for DIYs, workshops, online classes, etc.
I even created a new Pinterest board called Vacation Inspiration to keep the travel spark going and help me catalog all the new places I want to go (and the places I’ve already been). You can follow that board right here, if you’re interested.
So…now that I’ve gushed about this trip for way too long, I’m curious to know what kinds of things fuel your creative fire?
Is it a trip to a place you’ve never been? A long walk around your neighborhood? An afternoon coffee with your best friend? I’d love to hear about in the comments below.
P.S. I took a ton of photos while in USVI and will be sharing them soon. There are some photos posted on Insta already, if you want to take a looksie.
