Now that my husband and I are both full time retailers the concept of "family vacation" over the Christmas holidays is not the stereotypical traveling over the river and through the woods to relatives for holiday feasts. After I take a couple of days to clean and glean the shop of holiday detritus, we head out as a family of 4 to the beach. The place that soothes ALL of out souls.
We chill out, do some POWER PICKING for the shop and generally relax, eat out and check out all of the groovy Delawarean Christmas Light Spectaculars. I try to work on my New Year's Resolutions. Well, not so much resolutions, but plots & plans long term for the for the business, family and personal goals.
Of course it might have been smart to have checked the weather before we headed for home yesterday. We had furniture strapped to the top of our SUV so we had to hustle to attempt to get ahead of the storm that was sweeping down the coast.
I love the fresh start of the New Year and a stunning blanket of snow seems to fit in with that fresh beginning.
to fix what is broken
express my emotions more freely
eat more salad
to regain my sense of the ridiculous.
How about you?
