Vacations and Project 365

That's right.....I'm headed to Nashville, TN. My cousins and aunt are driving in from Charlotte, NC and we are meeting in Music City. It's a girls weekend!

This will be one of my mini-vacations this summer. I'm hoping to do several, but don't really have anything big planned this year. My hubby and I usually plan a destination vacation. Our first vacation was October 2004. We leased a Lincoln Continental and drove to South Dakota. Because it was the off season for tourism, we didn't have any lines to stand in, had no trouble getting a hotel room anywhere along the route, and were seated for meals immediately.

The following year, we flew out to Las Vegas for the annual bike fest. We did a package deal that included airfare, hotel, and rental car. It was a true bargain. We also rented a Harley while there. We befriended two couples and rode/ate with them on the bike runs. It was an amazing trip that I would do again in a heartbeat.

In 2006 we had a trip to Branson, Missouri planned. Everything was already paid for and we were so looking forward to getting away for the week. But plans were changed and that trip never happened. Vacations were put on hold ......until this year. Even though we don't have a big trip planned cause we're saving our $$$ for the house we plan to buy, we'll still take some mini-vacations.

What are some of your favorite vacation spots? Do you have an annual get-a-way spot. Do you vacation with other couples or with extended family? If you could choose any place to visit today, This Day, where would it be?

Also, please be sure to check out my photo blog, Shutter Clicks. I'm up to date on my pictures. Depending on what time I get back from Nashville on Sunday, I'll upload pictures from my trip and the current week's pictures.

Peace and Joy,

Exodus 33:14 (NIV) The LORD replied, "My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest."

It's hard to pick ONLY one :-) God has blessed us with the opportunity to travel more than we ever dreamed and each place has special things about it. This question has made me think, "That's something to blog about!" So I'm going to post tomorrow about some of our favorite Uganda, Ireland, the U.S. and Argentina. Thanks for the idea :-)

Have a WONDERFUL weekend with family! And now I'm off to go see your photos.

Oh, sounds like so much fun! We take many little mini vacations all year long. Rarely do we take a full week anywhere. But this year, in two weeks we are going to Branson with my son and DIL, the girls and her parents. We will be there the whole week. I'm excited to go. It's just really hard to let loose and leave.

Mostly we vacation with the kids and grand kids. I don't remember taking a vacation with other couples ever.
