It’s nearly spring. Know what that means? It’s time for my family’s annual March vacation. Last year, we vacationed in Pigeon Forge/Gatlingburg, Tennessee. (Which provided inspiration for the setting of my upcoming April 1st release, Having Cake!) This year, we’ll be trekking to Florida for a much-needed break. I fully intend on having a drink with a pretty little umbrella in it as the hubby and I haul our three little ones (plus my nephew) to the beautiful white shores of the Gulf Coast.
This will be my first vacation in Destin since I was a little kid, so I’m quite excited. Typically we stick to Panama City, but the last thing we want to be surrounded by are drunk college kids! So we’re trying out a new vacation spot this year. Crossing fingers that everything goes smoothly. With three kids, it’s always a coin-flip.
So for this week’s post, the last before my trip… unless you count my Lucky’s Charm story, I wanted to gush about my love of taking vacations. I’ve always loved to travel, even though I barely branch out of the southeastern United States, for the most part. I adore hotels, mostly because I don’t have to clean them, and half the fun is getting there. Yes, I’m a road trip addict.
Sadly, the hubby and I disagree on the way we “get there”. I can spend the entire car ride gabbing or sitting in silence, while he prefers to crank up the radio to drown out the noise the kids make. This year, we’re taking two cars, so this is where my crossing-fingers comes in! I’ll be in the “family” car with three boys (ages 5,4,3) while the hubby gets to ride with my eleven-year-old nephew. Not quite fair, is it?
Beaches, mountains, casino resorts…I’ve done it all. I haven’t made it to Disney yet, but don’t worry. That vacation mecca is on my “to do” list, along with that trip to England I will SOMEDAY make.
So that’s pretty much it. I just wanted a chance to brag about my upcoming beach trip. What is everyone’s favorite vacation spot? Or where are you going for Spring Break?
