I love not worrying about what time it is.
I love reading, reading, reading.
I love the books I pick to take on vacation ... mind candy/beach reads only. Save the challenging stuff for home.
I love eating. Planning our next meal. Splurging on dessert.
I love having T I M E with my husband. Hours of it. Days of it. Uninterrupted time.
I love listening to built-up podcasts while driving.
I love playing car games as the miles pass.
I love getting to the destination.
I love fresh hotel sheets and fluffy comforters.
I love seeing new things, or old things that I missed.
I love ice cream even more on vacation.
I love not having to make time for exercise.
I love not doing the dishes.
I love not planning meals to cook, or visiting the grocery store.
I love visiting the grocery store just for snacks.
I love the freedom.
Vacation, I love you.
(But coming home is usually pretty great too.)
