A long weekend getaway
is needed every now and again.

Quiet days slowed enough to
hear only my breathing.

Time to just be together
as a family and make memories.

No email. No internet. Disconnected.
Just time. And books. And outdoors.

And us.

The crisp fall air enticing
the colors to begin to glow.

Outdoor events filled our time
from hiking to ATVing to boating

Nightly star gazing, stories by the campfire
in the stillness of the country.

Squeezing in longer moments
to read and close my eyes

And nap.

  2. Wonderful that you made this time to be together as a family. I think that "No email. No internet. Disconnected. Just time. And books. And outdoors" is a super advice for down time.
