I just finished the most longest, most relaxing vacation that I've enjoyed in years.  It was 12 days of rest, new culture, celebrating friendship, great conversation, new foods and shopping.  In fact, it took  about 7 days to realize I hadn't thought about work since boarding the plane - something that hasn't happened in at least a year.

And now, I'm back and ready to hit the ground running.  With renewed energy and passion for work, volunteer commitments and all the things that make life great, it's going to be a fantastic spring.

I'm so grateful to be able to take time to spend with my best friend, to rejuvenate my own energy, and to come back ready to take on a world of excitement and opportunity.

Some photos...

Beautiful old street in Sydney.  Much of the city's beautiful heritage has been well-preserved.

Town Hall.  Again, this old building really shines.

These crazy beautiful, noisy birds were everywhere.

Something gross in the Fish Market. 
Sydney Opera House

Sydney Harbour Bridge

Robyn and I making 'tourist' faces.

This storm was coming. We were on a boat. You can imagine the rest.

Seriously amazing dessert.

The San Francisco Ferry Building, where I had fantastic lunch during a layover on the way home.
