Here’s one thing you may not know about me. I am a migraine sufferer. I’ve always been a girl who had the occasional headache, but following the birth of my second child my body went haywire and I have suffered with grinding your life to a stop killer headaches on an almost weekly basis. This my friends is not something I would even wish on the worst of my enemies. (not that I have a lot of those!) The pain is not something you can even begin to describe. Unless you have been there, you just can’t know. I’m quite blessed to have the most patient of men in my life who when he sees the pain coming, try’s to get me to a quiet place and force me to lie down for a few minutes. The quiet, the forcing me to slow down (hard for a Mama on the go) and some super powerful drugs are the only things that can save my day, sometimes my week. I’ve seen Doctors, had a copious number of tests, and been poked at by the best of neurologists. Apparently I’m a very “interesting” case. Interesting and headache, not something to strive for. The very long story short. I am stuck with these nasty little suckers. My best line of defense, good drugs, a healthy lifestyle, oh and maybe a move to somewhere where the weather is the same every day. Ideal locations as suggested by my Doctors; Hawaii, California or Arizona. Oh if only!
So this week I’m frustrated, tired of hurting and decided if I can’t pick up and move my Canadian butt to the States, at least I can dream of a vacation in one of those perfect places.
Todays travel dream takes me to Arizona.
I’m thinking a nice girls weekend at the Miraval . Have you seen this place? Do only the rich and famous stay here? With a ridiculous amount of activities to choose from and a landscape that is awe inspiring, Miraval is going on the bucket list.
Or maybe a nice romantic getaway with the Hubby at the Sedona Ridge Resort and Spa . Checking out their rooms and list of amenities I’m sure I could convince the Hubby to run away with me and soak up some sun, relaxation and maybe even a glorious treatment or two (Couple Massages or Harmonious Healing grabbed my attention immediately !!). All of this beauty while avoiding any kind of drastic temperature changes.
So, what do you think?? Where would you run off to?
Only about 10 more years until we are empty nesters, it’s not too early to start working on that *must see travel list!
