...spring break

Last year I got to go to New York right before spring break. I had almost 2 full weeks away from the classroom. It was an incredible, unforgettable experience!

This year I was tired going into the break, then crammed a lot into it. (I wish my parents and my kids didn't live in opposite directions!) A headache lasting toooo many days threatened to ruin my fun, but it turned out to be a good week in spite of it.
The high points....
  • Hanging out with my sister and two of her girls--hadn't seen them since last May!

  • Eating tacos with Katie and Matt and Nate and Genavieve on Katie's patio in Portland, with a fire in the pit. It was really too cold to be outside, but it was an adventure!

  • Getting pedicures with Katie (red toes are ready for sandals!)

  • Going to Happy Hour in a funky bar and eating delish food.

  • Coming home from Portland and having a day just to "be."
  • Spending time with a good friend and her family and getting to hold her newest grandson.
  • Reading the day away on Sunday.

So it wasn't New York. But I got to spend a lot of time with people I love. A good break. :-)
