HOLD ON PLAYA SANTANA, I AM COMING!
As I sit here trying to write today’s post, I keep glancing at baby monitor beside my computer because I swear that I turned the volume all the way down. I check it, yep the volume is off….so how is it possible I still hear my little one fighting sleep through the speakers?!?!?!
“Damn monitor, I can’t even rely on the mute button…”
Ok, finally. There it is. The silence. I now get to drift into wanderlust and reflect on my past travels and go into a state of euphoria for 1 hour; I never thought that one hour could be so amazing!
TODAY I WANT TO RELIVE OUR MONTH IN PLAYA SANTANA, NICARAGUA BECAUSE THIS TIME OF YEAR I ALWAYS FIND MYSELF LONGING TO HEAD SOUTH.
I want to eat jalapeño chicken from Yolanda’s, drink Toñas for breakfast, spend my afternoons taking pictures of Josh surfing; I want to live in a bathing suit, nap in hammocks, watch every single sunset and learn Spanish from the locals.
I want to be on Nica Time.
ALRIGHT YA’LL, I FEEL BETTER. NOW THAT I HAVE REMINISCED ABOUT TRAVEL PRE-BABY DAYS IN PLAYA SANTANA I AM GOOD.
And the funny thing is, these photos stir up my deep desire to take Noah there ASAP because he deserves, more than anyone, to see the beauty of the world. Noah should have memories like these but better with US; traveling is only going to get better.
Sure, I may miss sleeping in, drinking beer for breakfast and having more than an hour to myself all day but you know what?
I’d rather wake up with the sun in Playa Santana to watch the sunrise with Noah, to see his eyes light up when he sees the ocean’s calmness first thing in the morning, and teaching him about the Earth’s beauty that surrounds him.
To me, that is priceless…Looks like I am booking a trip soon!
