Don’t try to work on vacation!


My husband and I decided we both needed a break from the terrible cold and snowy weather we’ve been having. So we packed our beloved Scottie Gillis in the car and drove to southern Florida. We found warm sunny weather and a relaxed laid back style of life that we took to right away.

I also packed my Mac Book Pro and my Wacom tablet and pen. I thought I could work in comfort, instead of freezing. Read my blog to see what happens…

Sorry this photo isn’t an illustration of Gillis… I was just so relaxed and… I WAS ON VACATION!
