why do we put so much pressure on us to have 'the vacation'of a lifetime when the summer season comes? Is there something wrong with saying yes I had a great vacation, I sat at home enjoying my backyard, reading one of favourite books while the kids ran under the hose to keep cool. I guess it sounds better to say yes you had a great vacation in Paris, drank alot great French wine , ate cheese with fresh bread and didn't have a care in the world. it's great to have the big trip when it's vacation time but it's equally as good to just enjoy what's right in front of you. I know I love the sound of birds, kids laughing next door at my neighbours while i'm creating my dream flower garden. Enjoy your summer , it's short no matter what you have planned.
