Wheels Up; Vacation Time

It seems like June and July have gone on forever. Between winding town the slowest close of the year that I've ever experienced, moving to a new apartment, leaving the island, and experiencing extreme temperatures, I'm overdue for a vacation. My July's vacation will be more of a weekend getaway.

I'm a bit too pooped to frolic properly through the South of France so a North American stop it is. It's a place that I've never been, so it will count towards my Twelve Countries in 12 Months Project. Thereafter, I'm going to spend a bit of time with my sister in DC. I can't wait to go to my favorite Ethiopian Restaurant on U Street and walk around National Mall for morning rejuvenation.

Before I leave Abu Dhabi, I need to pick up a few souvenirs for my family. I will probably stop by a few of the small souqs to get things unique to the UAE.

I'm looking forward to grilled dinners with my family. My step-dad thinks he's the grill master and I gracefully oblige. He's quite the cook and I'm ready to taste flavors from home.

Most importantly, I am going to get some much needed rest. World news has been heavy, local news unfair, my national news disappointing so it is time to take a media break.

In the meantime, the blog is getting its annual redesign, the professional site is underway, I've pitched a few mainstream publications and after break, I will be renewed.

Starting Monday July 29, Her Perfect Black Dress will be Poised in Print. The site should redirect but if does not, please visit Changes will occur on FB, Twitter, LinkedIn, and everywhere we're connect.
