Beach Vacation Relaxation

With the July 4th holiday weekend upon us, many Americans are looking forward to an extra day or two off work.  And I am super excited to be on vacation all next week.  My family has been planning our trip to Rehoboth Beach for about a year now (it's been five years since our last real family vacay), and the big event is finally here.

The weather forecast is not ideal (possible rain every day), but the most important part will be simply being together.  I treasure the time with my family--my parents and my four younger sisters--since we live all over the Midwest (A - do Texans consider themselves Midwestern? ha).  Plus we will be vacationing with my aunt, uncle and cousins, which will be a blast.  And it's always nice to have some quality time with Scott without the daily stresses and commitments of life.

This break could not come at a better time.  It seems like everyone is in need of time off, so we have literally been counting down the days.  We have been emailing each other over the past few days, figuring out what to pack, what not to pack, and what we're going to eat.  Beach time, sleep, grilling, cocktails, games, books, maybe a little exercise, laughing and sharing stories, catching up with some of my favorite people in the world... it's a recipe for relaxation.

Enjoy the holiday weekend!  The blog will be quiet over the next week, but I'll be back soon, feeling renewed and refreshed...
