Dobra dan, from Croatia!

It’s wonderful to truly unplug.

Two weeks ago, I greeted you from Italy. Now, I say hello from Croatia! And, yes, I am still on holiday with another 11 days to go. It feels decadent to be away for so long, and I know not many (Americans) are able to vacation for this amount of time.

I’m happy that I have been truly able to be present with my hubby and take in all the amazing experiences we have had.

Since Lake Como, we stopped by Venice briefly and then have been island hopping in Croatia. We started on Korcula, supposed birthplace of Marco Polo, and are now on Brac. Next, we visit Hvar.

We have taken incredible hikes, eaten yummy food (Croatian olive oil far surpasses all others!), seen VERY old sites and never slept better.

The most successful professionals understand that R&R is as mandatory as productivity, The fall will be incredibly busy, and I am thankful that I have had this time to rejuvenate and prepare. I’m excited for what’s ahead, rather than overwhelmed and stressed.

In the spirit of R&R, we will take next Friday off from the newsletter in honor of Labor Day. See you in September—fired up and ready to go!!
