vacation living

Derick and I just got back from a 5 day trip to Sayulita, Mexico. Aside from partying and attending the most amazing wedding ever (salsa band, fireworks, pinatas), we took a little time to relax and unwind. There were many times during the trip that we said to each other "We should just stay here." And I got to thinking about what is so wonderful about being on vacation, and how I can incorporate that feeling into our everyday lives.

I think what it comes down to is this: on vacation we have fewer responsibilities, we spend more time outside, we try new things, we expect to spend time together, we live in a clutter-free zone, and we have fewer decisions to make about our food and clothing.

What do you think? Are there ways to make our everyday lives feel like vacation?
