Missing the rural life
It’s been 2 weeks since we went to Aklan, we were rejuvenated after that vacation but with the holiday rush in Manila, stress starts to build up again. More workloads, more traffic, more people in the malls and groceries, less parking spaces, less time to mingle, etc…
I miss the rural life where time feels so slow (I didn’t wear a watch during our vacay), fresh air, waves from the ocean (my aunt’s beachfront house), vibrant colors from the garden, and the secure feeling in the province (no holdapers, pickpockets, snatchers, etc…).
Gwen really enjoyed her mini-vacay too, I’m sure! Aside from her Boracay trick-or-treating, just their simple bonding moments with her Daddy is priceless. When you’re on vacation, who needs toys anyway? When you have the whole surroundings as your playground….
Jeff is the one who is very eager to encourage her to be in the outdoors this early, he said that being outdoors helps create a sense of wonder in her.
If only we can afford to leave our jobs here and just enjoy a laidback life…
