We returned from another amazing Izzo vacation on Kiawah Island last week. Although reality gets easier with each day that passes…nothing beats biking to the beach, forgoing the kickstand, running to the water, splashing through perfectly tempered salt water while feeling that warm Southern sun beaming on your face.
Especially when you’re now sitting inside with a bag of frozen corn pressed to your swollen face, eating applesauce and starting your seventh episode of Mad Men.
Maybe scheduling my wisdom teeth extraction the weekend after returning from paradise wasn’t the smartest move for my mental health. But hey, least rinsing with salt water brings me back to the beach for a few minutes each day.
What a pathetic picture I’m painting here, huh? To be honest, I was expecting to feel/look a lot worse than I do. Saturday was a bit rocky (and fuzzy) after I got back from the doctor’s (Matt said I was hilarious, giving thumbs up to all the doctors as they wheeled me outta the place while also trying to say, through a mouthful of gauze, “that only took two seconds! Two seconds!”) but I finally starting to feel a bit back to normal. Partly because of the meds, partly because the Vitamix. Green monster smoothies are a cure-all, people.
Well, green monster smoothies and Don Draper. And since I have so many episodes to catch up on before I heal/have no excuse to lay on the couch and whine, here are some simple snapshots from our lovely week in Kiawah.
Hope you all had a wonderful Independence Day celebrating this amazing country of ours. Now who wants to bring me fro-yo?
