I’ve been paying close attention to what makes me happy and making time to do those things. I’m canceling things that I’m not excited about. If I keep putting something off, I ask myself why. Is it worth pushing through to get it done or might I just let it go?

We scheduled a break to slow down. Meandering down Route 17, we made our way to Yorktown, where we stayed in The Duke of York, a locally owned hotel overlooking the river. We sat along the water’s edge, waiting to see the double-spring-span bridge open for ships to pass between Yorktown and Gloucester Point. We watched the Coast Guard in-training and walked along the shore, wading in the river. We enjoyed fresh crab cakes at the Water Street Grille and talked about our plans for this time in our lives.
