(Outside our house, on a quiet, snowy winter's day.)
But with much pre-vacation fussing to do (packing, repacking, making a list, checking it thrice, forgetting some things, stressing about forgetting them, etc.), and a 24-hour plane ride with a toddler (gasp!), I won't have that luxury in what would seem like forever. I know I've talked ad nauseam about the dreaded flight but I have learned to remind myself this: Whatever this trip brings us, at least at the end of our journey, tropical sunshine awaits us. With it, a brand new day.
And of course the warmth, both from the sun and my family's embrace. I cannot wait.
NOTE: I will probably be MIA for the next three weeks but when I'm back, I'm pretty sure I will have stories replete with discoveries and wonderment through the eyes of Little Miss and My Guy, who're both new to that part of the world. I am so excited for them. But let's not think that far ahead. First, there's a vacation to be had. And delicious moments to be savored.
