What do you get when your daughters travel east from Chicago, your sister and niece travel west from Ohio, and yours truly travels north from South Carolina? A "Girls Only" weekend in Brown County, IN!
Armed with food, dark chocolate, and bottles of wine, we stake out our place in a beautiful vacation "cabin" in the woods. The time whips by way too fast as we talk, reminisce, and listen to the dreams of our daughters. For the sake of modesty (and the fact that pictures follow you forever on the worldwide web), I'll forgo posting the hot tub pictures!
After our precious weekend ends, I travel to Ohio to see my father, and later grab a few hours here and there with girlfriends on my last day in Ohio.
We have more trips planned this summer. I am grateful for the modern conveniences of airplanes and fast cars that can get us to our destinations much faster than the horse and buggy days.
May you find time to reconnect this summer.
