This is the first January in 20+ years I'm not on the road. As a young person, I'll admit I found business travel exciting and even a little glamorous. New cities, new restaurants, new friends. But eventually it became more of an obligation than an adventure.
Even so, as I watched the stream of social media from friends and old colleagues traveling to the cities and shows I'd attended for decades, I expected to feel a twinge of envy, sadness, or even regret. Yet for some reason, it wasn't there. Instead I felt...free? It was weird, but it was good.
I do really miss the people, but not the travel. If I miss it at some point down the road, perhaps a vacation will help!
Home Sweet Home
This week we had our first real snow of the season. Of course by "real" I mean enough snow to sled and build a small snowman - not like the 18" snowstorms of my youth, but for my 5 year old with nothing nostalgic to compare, it was awesome! And I was here to see it - even better!
As part of my New Year's resolution, I also got out into the local community. Getting to know the residents, businesses and non-profits at gatherings and events was fun - more on that in the weeks ahead!
For now, whether you're here in Bucks County or on the road living the glamorous life....
