We’re just back from a lovely vacation in Aruba – ah, sun, sand, salt water, salt on my margarita… 🙂 It was wonderful and a much needed family-focus time, away from our computers.

Chloe had so much fun playing in the sand, and she loved swimming in the sea and the pools, too – and we just had a blast with her. I think my favorite part of each day was walking the beach at sunset each night after dinner ~ just the three of us.

I also took some time to revise my Vivid Vision for my business and well as put together a personal development plan for the next year (which I do around my birthday each year – which is next week!). I first started doing this regularly while in my MBA program, and then made it part of an annual retreat at the urging of my mentor coach, Chris Barrow. Two years ago, I filled a pad of paper while on the beach at Grace Bay in the Turks & Caicos; last year, I spent time at the lake doing the same; and this year, I "imagineered" on our balcony overlooking the Carribean Sea in Aruba while Chloe slept.

I am most definitely rejuvenated and recharged, and after having envisioned so clearly where my life, business-wise and otherwise, is headed, I couldn’t be more excited about what’s to come. Here are some photos of our trip – click on the photo link of Chloe in the right-hand column for more…
