Marvelous in my Monday – Picture Recap USA


24. June 2013 by swissfitchick

Good morning!!

I am back πŸ™‚ I hope you all had a great start of the week! Even though I am sad that my vacation is over, I am also happy to be back in a routine, and of course seeing all my friends and colleagues again. Expect his post to be a huge picture overload. I downloaded all the camera pics last night and there were so MANY, I could not decide which to post, so I went crazy and took a holy huge bunch of them. Not too much about food, as I save these for Wednesday. WIAW in Cape Cod and all the goodies I brought home – and the ones I found and then couldn’t find anymore 😦

Ok, so let’s just start with the beginning…NEW YORK CITY.


Oh, how much I LOVE fleamarkets!!

And then the long drive back to New York. We had sooo much traffic, but we made it on time! I even managed to prep my plane food beforehand! I was SO glad I had these healthy choices on hand. On the road and on the airport all you could get was junk….

And what is better than coming home after a long flight, unpacking stuff, going for a long run/walk and then sit down to a fresh homemade dinner? After this, I passed out at 10pm and woke up again at 11 am – WHAAATT?? I slept 13 (THIRTEEN) hours. I can’t remember when this happened the last time! Probably as a teenager…drunk…… πŸ™‚


Happy Marvelous Monday to all of you – make sure you head over to Katie’s party with all the marvelous link ups!!


What was your longest roadtrip you ever had? The drive between Boston and New York took us 7 hours with the car and 7 hours with the plane back home to Switzerland. Though we travelled to the Philippines 2 years ago and it took us 28 hours!!! πŸ™‚

What is your favorite snack to have on hand when you are on the road?Β 

Eggs, Baby Carrots, Questbars, Almonds or a bottled green smoothie!

Your trip looks like it was absolutely amazing, Lucie… but I have to admit that I’m selfishly happy to have you back ❀ I'm glad to hear that you had such a good time πŸ™‚ And I remember coming back from my last vacation and passing out for a good 10 hours after being awake all night catching flights.

Who thought I would ever write again. Link in Bio. β€š'In essence, love is the consistent embodiment of care, compassion, kindness, and joy toward yourself, your partner, and each other as two interconnected and supported beings. If you encounter those feelings, you can't work around your own vulnerability.

But: there is one emotion that is stronger than fear, and that is forgiveness. For power is never simply a possession but an exercise; power is about how we understand ourselves. If we can forgive, we can let go. If we can let go, we can detach. If we can detach, we find happiness.' #blogger #heartstories #detachment #happiness
