Bring Back That Vacation Feeling

Back to life! Back to reality! That late 80’s song by Soul II Soul is the anthem that rings through my ears as vacation comes to an end and life as normal will soon resume. But I think to myself, why does this vacation lifestyle have to end just because we’re going home?  We had […]
