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.
