I was scrolling through Instagram one afternoon when I chanced upon a beautiful picture of this volcanic lake in Iceland. I wanted to show it to my husband and convince him to finally take that Iceland trip that we’d been planning for our next family vacation.
But then another thought crossed my mind! What if I went there all by myself?
For over a decade now, my family has been at the forefront of my routine. I live with my husband, two children, and my mother-in-law. Since I got married about 15 years ago and had my first child two years later, my weeks have been a blur of packing lunches, scheduling doctors' appointments, making weekly assessments, and hosting perpetual guests in addition to managing my own business. Amidst the rush of everyday life, I run on autopilot most of the time.
