Beyonce's Essence article Eat, Play, Love (inspired by the film Eat, Pray, Love in which Julia Roberts takes a year off to travel the world and find herself) chronicles the singer's hard-earned year away from the music world.
For a superstar like Beyonce an extended dream vacation doesn't just involve exotic locations, it means taking the time to do normal things. At the top of Beyonce's vacation to-do list? Spending time with husband Jay-Z, picking her nephew up from school and learning to cook.
In Eat, Play, Love Beyonce writes, "I had talked about taking a vacation before, but always ended up in the studio after two weeks, so no one believed me. This time, though, I was serious. I was going to give myself a year to do the things I never get to do."
She continues, "Simple things like play with my nephew, pick him up from school, visit museums, go to concerts, see some Broadway shows, learn to cook a meal and spend time with my husband... Yes, I needed some relaxation, but I wanted inspiration too, from regular everyday things. They did not have to be over-the-top productions. I was looking for tiny moments that would speak to my heart and make me smile."
