Hawaii, Paris, Caribbean, Central America, Vegas, or a Simple Staycation. It’s amazing what a little break can do to our mental capacity. From the planning, organizing and more, all exude times of exhilaration, relaxation and joy!

Yet…The Society of Human Resources Associates (SHRM) shared that over 35 percent of Americans don’t plan on taking all their vacation days this year. A potential year of the Cranks in the making? Here are the reasons cited:

  • 43% Saving time for something later
  • 21% Too much work
  • 15% Don’t have enough money
  • 9% Feel guilty
  • 9% Other reasons
  • 3% Discouraged by their boss

In light of the more transient workforce, employers are trying various options to attract quality applicants. Such measures include a combined databank of employee time off which includes up to 4 weeks off on date of hire. Naturally, employees are ecstatic of this change and proves it’s a great methodology for recruitment. However, this databank represents a combination of paid time off including sick and vacation.

Paid Time Off

Do you plan on taking your vacation this year? If so, great! If not, why not? Does your reason fall into any of the above? Something to think about.

Ambience The Lights

A place of lights that sets the ambience of peace and serenity in the warmth of the cold.


The lights in the cold. After a day skiing in the mountains, we hit the downtown village at night. A place of lights that sets the Ambience of peace and serenity in the warmth of the cold. Twas exciting as my youngest daughter decided to spontaneously capture this pic of herself curled up against the Lights of Nike’s inscription The Chosen.

All in beautiful Breckenridge, Colorado.

Thought I’d share.

Cheers!
