rolling with the punches.

After an incredible nine days away, {cv} and I began our homeward trek toward Providence last night. Unfortunately, we had an extra long layover {otherwise known as a cancelled flight!} in Charlotte. You won't find me complaining about a night in one of my most beloved cities, but I wasn't planning to take another vacation day today. Weather and maintenance issues dictated otherwise...

Rolling with the travel punches--and all of life's other "surprises"--is not generally my forte. I'm the girl with a plan. Sometimes though, the best laid plans are meant to be broken. While lamenting to {cv} about going back to reality after our time away, I wished for a day to just recover from all of our travel craziness. You know what? I got the extra day I wanted, though I didn't quite pick it for myself. As I round out the first week of my 28th year, I've decided this year is going to all about rolling with the punches. Life is way too short to take another route. 

Thank you for sticking with me while my posting has been sparse--I'll be back in full force very soon :) Enjoy your Monday! I'll be soaking up as much of this unexpected day out of work as possible. xoxo {av}



  1. The weather yesterday was terrible, my husband flight also super delayed. Have a wonderful week lady.

  2. I LOVE unexpected vacation days, enjoy it!

  3. Well another day in the south doesn't sound too terrible to me, either!! I'm glad you unexpectedly found yourself with one more day to get ready to face the real world again. Maybe next time you're down this way you'll be hosting another blogger blitz! Happy belated birthday week, and thanks for all the pretty IG's this weekend! xoxo

  4. Looks like you made the best of you bonus vacation day! ;)

  5. Great outlook! And glad you got to take advantage of an extra opposed to being stuck in the airport {which would totally be my luck!}.
