For the first time in a LONG time, our family is going on a family vacation that has NOTHING to do with family, friends, or the military. We leave Thursday evening and are headed down to Louisiana, and will split our time between New Orleans and Gulfport, Mississippi. I am SO ready for a break, for relaxation, for family time.
The day we return is the publication date for A Melody for James (stay tuned for purchase links!), and the garden will need some serious care after a week’s absence. Everything will get crazy busy again. For today, though, while I’m insanely trying to prepare my house for our house sitter, catch up on laundry so that I can pack, and seriously weed my garden so that nothing dies in our absence, I’m just imagining how wonderful it will be to kick back at the pool in our resort or sip coffee at Cafe Dumond.
