My poem of Change

I drive around these old dusty roads
Pitch black with only the light of the moon
My mind is somewhere off in space
How did I even make it home tonight?

Every twist and every turn
Is burned into my memory
As the music plays
I relive the past.

I remember the first time, the first time
I drove down this old road
Now all I want
Is to just pick up and leave
Why can’t it be that easy?

A black night
A blue day
Around here
It’s all the same.

Listening to the music as it plays
Although it reflects
Many darker days,
I find truth in it
In so many ways.

“Through the eye
Of the storm
You are never alone
Even through, the shadows
You are never alone”

I’m so close
To the eye of my storm
Down these old back roads
Just to mourn.

My loss,
My strength
The lesson,
The gain
As I seek change
I will always
Grow through the pain.

(Lyrics by Killswitch Engage)
Poem by yours truly.

So Here We Are

I’m officially on VACATION! I have waited 7 months for this since we¬†first booked our cruise. We don’t actually fly out to Miami until Friday!! But I’m headed to my moms on Thursday since we’re catching the plane from there. I’m so excited. First time on MSC Cruiseline. I think regardless of the reviews we will have an extremely great time!! Plus we have that BALCONY SUITE that makes things all the better!! ūüėČ

Now I have to do all my last minute things.. of course I’ve been packed for a week

ONE Month

Getting SUPER excited for our upcoming vacation. On a day like today when I’m not feeling my best, it really gives you something to look forward to. We’re officially 30 days away from flying to Miami and boarding the beautiful MSC Divina.

We are booked in a huge balcony suite. None of us in our group of 4 have ever even had a balcony so to get the chance to have both a suite and a balcony, it makes this cruise that much more special. Although, we’ve never been on this cruiseline before and knowing it is more of a European cruise we know that we are in for a real surprise. But unlike some cruisers, we are looking forward to the difference in cruiseline.

Something new or different means a new adventure for us and that’s what traveling and cruising is all about. Another thing that makes this cruise special is my Aunt who is going was just diagnosed with Lung Cancer. I’m really looking forward for us 4 as a family to enjoy this vacation to the max TOGETHER and really spend some quality time TOGETHER.

Although this year has been a rough one.. from the time we started planning this cruise back in February we have had many Ups and Downs. But, I know this vacation is what we all need and we will make the absolute best of it no matter the situation.

30 Days………………………………!
