(Please note, I'm only recapping the last two days of January, the month of February, and the first day of March. March is slightly less scary than February, but is still heavy with the FLYING AND OMG WHERE IS MY DRIVERS LICENSE AND ALSO MY AMEX?)
The one thing (okay, TWO things) I will say about this schedule are:
1) Clearwater Beach, FL is easily one of my most favorite places that I get to visit for work.
This is the view from the balcony of my room at the Marriott Suites - Sandkey, taken at 11am on my first full day in Florida.
This is the view from the deck of the restaurant where my co-worker and I had lunch on Tuesday. We ate here two years ago as well, and it was just as awesome. I even got a little sun on my shoulders (BECAUSE IT WAS WARM ENOUGH FOR ME TO WEAR A TOP WITH SPAGHETTI STRAPS - IN JANUARY).
This is the view from my balcony at sunrise yesterday morning, February 1. I was sitting at my desk working when I looked over my shoulder and realized the sun was rising, and gloriously so. These are the moments where I am keenly aware of how blessed I am to have the job I do, and the opportunities to witness these types of moments because of that job.
2) Although I've been home for less than 24 hours, and even though I'll be leaving for Chicago in about 13 hours, I am, at least, going to Chicago for some PTO. Of course, I have conference calls every day, but I'll be taking them in Chicago, so we're just going to call it a win.
