Weekly Photo Challenge: Escape

Escape is defined in the dictionary as a verb meaning to slip or get away, as from confinement or restraint; to gain or regain liberty.

In today’s world of fast paced work and constant busyness, escape to me means to “slip or get away” from the chaos of society, the pressures of work or school, the drama of co-workers and the pressures of life everyday.


For me, the greatest escapes and most beneficial escapes are the small escapes we can take each day…in order to survive in our hectic and busy lives.  It’s taking a nice quiet walk along the waterfront, listening to the water, enjoying the warmth of the sun and allowing my mind to wander in my own thoughts.  It’s  jetting off in a boat across the water and going as fast as possible on the open sea…leaving all my worries on the land and taking out my adrenaline on the water.  It’s getting away with my husband for a night out to enjoy our favorite foods, talking and forgetting about the stress of the day.  It’s taking bubble baths and reading a good book.  It’s eating donuts and watching a mindless chic flick.

How do you escape everyday?  If you don’t…you should.

    • We love being in and around the ocean. It’s so beautiful, powerful and absolutely calms the heart! That’s why we live here by so much water.

      I hope you having an amazing weekend too! Thanks for coming by 🙂
