Feed Your Brain And Learn To Let Go Of The Guilt.

I’ve spent many many years of my life feeling guilty for taking time off. 2019 is not exempt but I am a work in progress. Rewinding the clock, it’s safe to say that for the last 20 years of my career, I’ve felt bad asking for time off and even worse when I returned. Now, as a co-founder of a bustling social media agency, I still feel guilty which is weird because it’s my company!

I can't believe we have a mere three days. <cue the tears...for me, not them!> We took a short drive up to Saugatuck, MI which is only a 2.5 hour trip from Chicago. Yep, puppy, kids and all!

Guadalajara: Day 3 <1 tequila, 2 tequila, 3 tequila...floor!>

If you're going to do Mexico right, you have to drink tequila. As an aside, I also drink tequila in Illinois. I'm versatile like that. My husband is so lucky. 

Day 3 was one for the books. We experienced our biggest surprise yet...as if this trip couldn't get any better. We woke up to our usual program and were dressed and ready to go early. We knew one thing and that was that we were going to tequila country to learn and tour for the day. No complaints there. But how we were getting there was the big question mark.
