I had a book signing in Atlanta back in June and, since we lived in Georgia for several years when we first got married, we decided to stay a few days after and check out the things we'd missed. Like our favorite pizza place with its drool-worthy Hawaiian pizza and our favorite dinner restaurant. (Wait, why do all my best memories involve food?)
It's amazing how taking even just a short vacation with the people you love--especially a vacation where you don't have every moment scheduled to within an inch of its life--can rejuvenate you. We need to do it more frequently, to get out of the ruts of our lives. Not that my life is a rut, no sirree. My life is incredibly exciting and glamorous and TV movie worthy.

What was I saying? Oh yes, glamour and glitz and excitement. It's quite exhausting. So having time to rest and relax is a definite plus.
What about you? Where did you go on your last trip to get some R&R?
