Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language. ― Henry James
I’m the girl who gets guilt trips from taking time off. The one who’s answering emails in her hotel room in Mexico while her friends are sipping on margaritas by the pool. Call it the bane of the business owner’s existence— I can never really disconnect when I’m traveling. But I love to travel— to switch up my day-to-day and experience new places. It keeps me sane, relaxed(ish) and inspired.
Right now, quick getaways (with access to speedy WiFi) is my jam. If I can combine my vacation with a work trip— even better. So now that I’ve spent the last few days in New York taking meetings and visiting showrooms, I’m off to the Hamptons where I’ll be working poolside and attempting to not check my emails every 3 minutes. On the disconnecting agenda: beach racquets, backgammon, good books, tennis and a little golf. After all, what’s summer for if not to enjoy a lazy afternoon or two?
