I’ve been traveling since I last blogged here at Inspired by Life! I arrived home to Dallas yesterday and thought I’d take this opportunity to give you a peek into my Travel Journal.
I don’t do much writing during the summer months when my kids are out of school. For one thing, my kids are out of school. For another, I typically turn in my manuscripts at the beginning of June, and after the toll my deadline takes out of me, I’m in need of a vacation.
We writers use the term, “Creative Well.” Essentially, in order to write, we need to draw heavily on that creative well. Which is perfectly fine so long as a writer is always adding fresh water to her well. If she isn’t — if she drains it dry– both she and her work are destined to suffer. Summer is the time of year when I pour fresh water into my well!
This year, my parents, my two sisters, and our families took a trip to the Hawaiian island of Maui to celebrate my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary.
We kicked off the trip with a lazy beach day during which we attempted to align our Central and Pacific Time Zone body clocks with the Hawaii-Aleutian Time Zone.
The next day, we set out for a jumbo family photography session.
Next up, we attended a fabulous luau at the Old Lahaina Luau. If you’re planning a trip to Maui, I highly recommend it. It was a highlight of our trip!
We celebrated July 4th together in patriotic fashion…
And we did a lot of relaxing amid the stunning natural beauty of Maui…
All in all, it was a trip to remember and treasure. Aloha until next time, Hawaii!
Which vacation spot most fills up your creative well?
