The last few years my sister, my mom and sometimes my sister-in-law and niece, and I all go on a weekend getaway. And for the last few years that weekend getaway place has been Eureka Springs. This year we are shaking things up and heading off to St. Louis, MO (cue "clang, clang, clang went the trolley").
Even though my family can drive me insane (like how Mom pronounces the L in salmon), I love them. And I'm thankful for the time we can spend together. I am thankful that we choose to make the time to spend together. I am also thankful for the break from everything and being able to take this mini-vacation, even if it's without Chris.
I didn't really start to get excited about the trip until Thursday when I started printing out maps and itinerary ideas. Suddenly, I couldn't wait to get on the road. Also, wished that I had thought to download the soundtrack to "Meet Me in St. Louis".
Be thankful of the times you get to share with your loved ones and happy Friday to all!
[Side note: Chris has said that he is the speaker to my radio waves, which comes in handy about half of the time because sometimes it's best to not say those things you are thinking out loud. So probably a good idea he's staying at home.]
