until vacation. We were unable to take our annual pilgrimage to warmer climes this past winter, for various reasons. However, we just booked a nice, long getaway for early next winter. If the summers weren't so nice here, I don't think we could stand the wait.
It's also our first long vacation alone since becoming parents 24 years ago. Feels a bit strange at first, but it won't take long to make the transition.
