It’s been nearly a month since I last blogged. YIKES!! Since my last entry, I have been spending a lot of time working as well as just spending more time with family and close friends. I trust all of your holidays were well and that everyone is back into the swing of things. Before I begin my foray back into the blogosphere, I wanted to talk about the importance of keeping in touch. You may jump to the photos below as this is one of those babbling on posts =P
Every year, I make a list like many do. I took a hard look at my list for 2009 and you know what? I did not make it out to the gym at least once a week, nor am I a White House photographer (not yet), but rather than focusing on where I came short, I found that I accomplish a lot. I exceeded some personal goals, I got things done around the house, I even created (now perfecting) my work flow. All this was great, but the one thing that I was most proud of was that I was able to make some time to re-connect with some old friends I have made along the way. It’s always way too easy/convenient to just live our lives, we seldom take the time to just chat and touch base. This is important to me because I value all my relationships with people. They help me do better, they help me be better and heck, it just fun to catch up. I do have a point to all of this, although it played out better in my mind. The re-connecting/staying in touch reminded me about my recent trip to Greece. I was there to help Joee out for Michelle and Vince’s wedding. I like Joee found myself packing like mad a day after Roselle and Stephen’s wedding. I left on the Monday morning, armed with my Boda bag and Think Tank Airport Takeoff loaded with all my gear. Two layovers, a myriad of security checks and 3 planes later, I was greeted by amazingly warm weather in Santorini Greece! Here’s a photo break…
Joee and I spent the day getting the lay of the land and exploring the island. We were later invited to have dinner with Michelle, Vince and the rest of the gang. Over copious amounts of wine, beer and what seemed to be an endless supply of Ouzo I learned that everyone has known each other since high school and that they were all really close. They shared stories and had their own inside jokes, yet they were all very accommodating and made me feel like part of the group. I know how easy it is to have life get in the way of keeping in touch, they all gave me advice and stories about how they stick together and there is no way to articulate it other than it was nice. Enjoy the rest of the photos, there is definitely more to come.
Man, those were good times ! It was fun having you there. Thanks for not stepping on any donkey poop and bring it back to the hotel room haha
Thanks again for everything.
