We're preparing to leave for vacation and I'm so filled with anticipation I think I'm going to burst. The past few months have been busy - on several fronts - and I'm really looking forward to unplugging and taking a week or so to rest, relax, play and READ! We're very fond of family road trips and this year's vacation is no exception. To prepare for our mountainous adventure, I bought a few books to take along with me for all of the relaxing I hope to do. Carefully stacked on my bedside table, so I won't forget to pack them, one book has continuously called out my name from it's resting spot in the pile - and it seemed that the only way to silence the sound was to pick up said book and read it - before the vacation - and I'm so glad I did.
