Break for Anguilla

Yesterday was the first day of spring, and it’s snowing today in Philadelphia. I’ve finally pulled out my Lilly only to cover it up in a cable sweater and scarf. House hunting is in full swing, and our realtor Teresa has been great about calling me with good options for us to take a look at. But instead of being fun, the stress is mounting and I’m not sleeping. Or when I am, I’m having crazy dreams about my ex-boyfriend making me Mary-Kate and Ashley style videos in the Bahamas. So bizarre. 

So I’m giving myself a mental spring break break. Photos of Anguilla popped up on my dash, and I could definitely use a few days in paradise to unwind.

Seriously, can we go now? This resort sounds amazingly relaxing  Plus look at that perfect water, those swaying palm trees, and a brisk infinity pool to stave off the heat of the day. Sailing? Check. Yoga? I can practice in May, but I could certainly do some of the basic stretches and just soak up the sun. Spa treatments? How many checks can I get there…

The spa asks you to pick a rock to state your intention for your spa session. Do they have a rock that says “Regain my sanity from snow/house hunting/physical exhaustion”?jen darling by j.k.h. nelson

I’m definitely going to get this printed to put up in my office. Hopefully no one takes it personally when I disappear into my imagination for a little while to recharge and take this little boat on the water.

How much more could you ask for? Do grown-ups still get to take spring break? jen darling by j.k.h. nelson

I love this panel of tin fish. Definitely a design aspect to bring into my future beach house. I’ll be adding the Viceroy to my travel list, maybe we can go next year once all the house craziness has settled. Now off to enjoy my mental spring break.

Where would you go on a mental spring break?
