It’s Friday and our vacation is about to begin. We were relaxed and excited at the same time, knowing we will spend the next week enjoying each other, having fun and not running to meet any timelines but our own. My day was filled with good food and conversation with a wonderful friend (remember those tomatoes?, they made a wonderful tomato & cucumber salad!), the discovery of unplanned pumpkins growing in unexpected locations and – best of all – my children working together to get the car cleaned and prepped for a road trip. The car is ready for family fun with no thanks to me! What more could a vacationing mom ask for?
