Thursday already! Wow how the week flies. Just like summer. Just like a vacation. Blink a few times and it seems like it’s over before it actually began. Hopefully that just means you had a GREAT time (on vacation—and if you’ve had fun here, too, even better!).
Every once in a while you come across a book like that, too. You read voraciously, can’t put it down, but never want it to end and hate yourself for reading it so darn fast.
Due to our lovely economy, I won’t be taking the kids to my favorite summer vacation spot anytime soon. I spent two summers in Colorado right out of high school and will take a trip to the mountains over the beach any day.
That’s me and Mr. Romance from Wednesday’s post in the Rocky Mountain National Park, Estes Park, Colorado, 1999. I went back once with my son Cody about 3 years ago in October and we had a blast hiking in the snow.
However, even though we don’t see a trip to Colorado in our near future, don’t feel too bad for us. We share a lake cabin in the north woods of Wisconsin with my two older sisters and younger brother, and plan to spend plenty of time up there before school starts again.
Not too shabby, right? Best part is, it’s right next to my parents’ house and the kids get to see Grandma and Grandpa. Grandpa keeps the kids busy, and I sit on the swing by the lake with my mom, visiting and reading the many good books on my TBR pile.
Share your summer vacation plans, whether they’re a trip out of the country, or as simple as staying home and enjoying your own back yard.
Even better, share the name and author of a recent book that read like a wonderful vacation to you! (Comments get an entry for the regular and bonus give-a-ways at the end of the week.)
