Flashback Friday | Pre-career Retirement

Today has been one of those days where nothing seems to go quite right.  Some could even say that I woke up on the wrong side of the bed!  I can honestly say T.G.I.F.F. {yes there is an extra F}

Days like these really make me miss my globetrotting life.  The days where I only worked for three hours  - 20 hours a week and was still able to shop. And travel. And save money.  It makes me miss the countless mornings lounging around the pool, drinking some sort of delicious drink. The endless possibilities to escape the city for some oceany awesomeness.  I long for those days where I enjoyed every minute - instead of wondering why there aren't enough hours.  Or how the days/months have passed me by so quickly.  Is it possible that I experienced a pre-career retirement?

Regardless, I wish I could do this for the rest of my life and feel like this all the time.

Check out other trips down memory lane with the new host  Lauren from 'Heya, Sparky!' for flashback Friday
