Is it just me, or are you likewise experiencing post-holiday blues? I noticed that as I grow older (and wiser, or so I would like to claim), I oftentimes experience these blues immediately after a trip, an extended vacation, and the holidays.  Well, truth is, even after weekends.

I am a lover of sunsets.  One reason why I love going to the beach is not because I am a good swimmer (which I am not), or a good surfer (obviously not likewise), but because I am such a huge fan of sunsets.  I love seeing the mix and match of pink with orange […]
