Ahhh. It’s good to be back.
Like every time we go away, we’ve made some more realisations post-holiday.
As much as it’s exciting and fun to go away, as you’re seeing new things and going to new places…
We are people of routine, Hubbie especially so.
He is SOOO happy to be back. Back to routine. Back to his food. Back to his bed. And as much as his homebody comments have annoyed me ever-so-slightly today, I also feel like, I don’t know… I kinda agree.
I also, like routine. I also, LOVE my bed. I also like eating well, and I love the set-up of our house, where baby girl sleeps, where we sleep…
I love our town. I love our beach. I love our main strip, in fact it quite frankly smashes other coastal town strips…
And that’s when I realised. We find it hard to enjoy being away fully, because where we live is SO DAMN GOOD.
We live in an area where people travel and holiday to, and we’ve become so used to it, we don’t realise how good it is until we leave!
Also, we are setting up our lifestyle, our house, to be an everyday holiday house. Sure, we still work, we still do the groceries, we still do chores, and all the other day-to-day monotony that drives us insane at times.
But we love our spot. We love where we live. 🥰🌅
We don’t really need a holiday from here. We just need to mix it up at times.
We get to see beautiful water views in the morning when we wake, and watch the sunset glowing over the water at night. I drive baby girl home from school the scenic way, past the water. We visit the beach on Wednesdays when she is at school (when the wind is absent!) after we’ve been to one of the many incredible cafes on our main strip.
We’re trying to live a holiday life already, and we are comfortable in our home doing it.
We WILL still go away. There’s no doubt about that. But the fact that we’re going to be a lot more home-bound in the period after baby arrives, it doesn’t upset me in the slightest.
Home is good. This town, is good. We like it a lot.
In fact, we love it. Which is why we moved here in the first place. 🙏💖
