Last week my husband and I celebrated our three year wedding anniversary in Puerto Vallarta.  It was a wonderful time to get away with my husband and have tons of quality time together relaxing and going on little adventures together. 

But as I am back home and getting back into the swing of things I cannot help but feel changed.  I know so often people talk about how being away and disconnecting from the distractions from life is so refreshing.  And I get that.  But I feel something more.  I feel different. 

Being away challenged me to rethink almost everything.  All these things that I have been aspiring to be has been put on hold because I always found something else to distract myself with.  And then I realized that those distractions were no longer worth it. 

I do not want to forget how our trip to Puerto Vallarta changed me.  How it awoke a part of me that was lost in busyness and distractions. 

So today I am thankful for time away.  I am thankful for Puerto Vallarta.  And I am thankful for my husband with whom my deepest desires in life are for. 

What are you thankful for this week?
