Hello Online family!
I’m currently in New Zealand. Seth, the kids and I made the trek from New York. We’re staying outside of Hawks Bay, and it is magnificent! I’ll have more photos and details to share, but mostly I’ve been hiking, reading and journalling - meanwhile Seth and our very adventurous friend/babysitter have taken the kids' mountain biking, white-water rafting and went to Splash Planet! I cannot say how healing it has been to have this little respite of summertime in the middle of winter. The length of the day is especially magical. Sunset is around 8:30ish. And the food is unreal. So fresh! Summertime food! On our way here, as we were boarding our third consecutive plane my 11 yr old was like, “this is a far way to go for a vacation Mom!” But here we are only a handful of days into the holiday, and he is in HEAVEN and already planning new places to visit in New Zealand for next winter break!
Being in this hemisphere over the new year I imagine that I exist in a little extra pocket/dimension of time. It’s Jan 1st, and yet back home it’s Dec 31st. So today I am living in a… let’s call it a liminal state of possibility! I am between the two years:) So I’m going to spend today chilling and dreaming between 2018 and 2019.
Happy New Year/ New Years Eve depending on your home hemisphere!!!!! #nzmustdo
