Home Again

Back at the nest. Our winter escape to warmer climates has come full cycle. Being away for almost six weeks has certain advantages. In spite of the fact that our trip was, on the whole, pretty special and wonderful, I’m currently basking in an appreciation of home. When we left, I was seeing its flaws. I came home to value its strengths.

To say our trip was diversified would be a major understatement. For one thing, it was,  in large part, a road trip. We drove to Florida, averaging six hours of travel per day. While in Florida, we visited Naples and Sarasota, spent a week with the kids at Disney World, and hopped onto a Caribbean cruise for another week. We then drove to St. Simon’s Island to spend a week in a rented condo before heading home.

As with most journeys, it was a learning experience that I’m still processing. I actually have a running list of observations and notes regarding things as simple as packing tips to more complicated thoughts about things I learned about myself.

Over time, I hope to explore some of these thoughts on this blog. But, after today, I won’t be publishing on Facebook. I’ve been away from it for some time, and have decided that my off again, on again relationship with Facebook has run its course.

I plan to continue with the blog, and would be delighted to have my friends with me on that journey. Please sign up at my address included as part of this post if you would like to know when I’ve published a blog.

      Thanks, Mary. Signing up on my blog will result in a notification when I post. Could you send me an email so I can be sure that I have your current email address? I sent you a note when we were in Florida hoping to see you, but I don’t think you ever got it.
