Happy Lunzygras.... belated.

Hello Loyal Seven!!

You ARE still here, right? right?? tap, tap... is this thing on?

I just celebrated my big 4-0 so it feels like a good time to wipe off the dust and cobwebs from my little slice of the Interwebz.  And technically Lunzygras DOES last the entire month of April.... so I'm timely. kinda.

I have just spent a long, exhausting ride on the crazy train.  Our rental went up for sale as a short sale, we found a great house to buy, had a nightmare loan process, moved finally, blah blah blah. total cray cray.   BigDaddy and I went to Maui to celebrate our 10th anniversary and my 40th birthday. alone. as in no little people with us for EIGHT splendid nights.  Don't feel too badly for them, they got to hang out in CA with all the grandparents and get spoiled rotten.   

It was wonderful for us to re-connect and recharge our much depleted batteries.  To say we were spent would be a huge understatement.  Maui was key. and wonderful. and I want to be there... like now.

Me going out to Snuba/Huka in Makena Beach Reef!
Maaaauuuii......Oh Lawdy.... Maui was wonderful.  just what the doctor ordered.  I instantly found myself in my happy place and yes, that happy place included adult beverages. We had a great time and this was our first vacation EVER that BigDaddy didn't work. for reals. So that was a huge bonus!

The trip was amazing for so many reasons, but for me, it had a lot to do with me trying to be a bit more adventurous. busting out of my comfort zone. I tried Huka/Snuba, jumped off rocks into an underwater cave, and we took back roads -- no cell service or guard railings.  And it felt good. I was totally in the zone-- enjoying my Flow. { My full trip report can be viewed here on Trip Advisor if you are interested in all the deets.}

So 40. yeah. I thought I should be feeling all weird and you know, OLD.  But I l.o.v.e. my birthday.  like so much so, that I turned it into a named, month-long event.  And the vacationing didn't stop after Maui.

Aries Girls Rock!
One of my BFFs has her birthday 10 days after mine and threw a full-on, killer event.... complete with a hotel room block, pub crawl and party bus. And a Sober Coach to keep track of us! Thanks Steph!  :D So off to SoCal I went.  It's hard work being a travel bunny but somehow I mustered up the energy to make it happen.  I met up with another girlfriend in LA who had also flown in.  The weekend with my girls felt like playing hokey.  A Non-Mom, Non-Wife, Not-responsible-for-anyone-else-period weekend. I laughed so hard my stomach ached for a few days. I did Jell-O shots and danced on a moving bus with black-out windows thankfully we had the stripper pole to hold on to! and I danced, danced, danced. Can you say Bliss?

But something kicked in. I swear something changed.  Maybe it was that I had finally had the chance to slow down in Maui and then be completely ready to Bring It in CA.  I wasn't escaping, I was whooping it up.  Whatever the case, I soaked it in. relished the moments. appreciated my time with these amazing people that were a part of my life. And I found my Lunzyness.

More coming soon! pinky promise!
