I was able to get away for the weekend with one of my closest friends to Santa Barbara. It was a fabulous, relaxing weekend–complete with a great run along the coast on the UCSB campus and lots of delicious wine! Taking time for myself is not something I do often enough. Sure, I get little bits here and there, but any time I have an opportunity to really relax, I always think to myself, “now, why don’t I make this a bigger priority in my life?” Getting away also helps me gain perspective and appreciate the comforts of home. Cheers!
