I'm leeeeaving on a jet plane...

The best gift I've given myself this year is that of travel. From the weeklong vacation I took to California at the beginning of January to see a dear friend get married, visit my dad, and meet my stepfamily

to a Memorial Day reunion with my best friend in Chicago

to the impromptu Charleston dinner cruise I took with Hubby during the summer

to our return trip to Charleston over Thanksgiving weekend...

these little getaways provided much-needed mental holidays. Though the trip I'm leaving for today is not purely a vacation - I'm attending the URJ/WRJ Biennial in D.C. as a representative of my temple's sisterhood - I'm looking forward to one last getaway, catching up with people I haven't seen in over a decade, having fun with new friends, and OMG hearing the President of the United States speak.

Yes, the best gift - one that I am incredibly grateful for - is being fortunate enough to travel and experience fun times with good friends.
