Ah. Who knew planning 
a summer vacation
was so exhausting...

  1. Ohh how exciting the beach is always a GREAT trip! Ahhh I can hear the sound of the ocean ;-)

  2. Sounds wonderful though, Michelle. We're going back to the beach house we went to last year, a little easier choosing, but still have to make the travel plans. The time it takes is worth it, though.

  3. I hope the work melts away with each ocean sunset.

  4. It is hard work planning, but so much easier these days with the Internet. Can you imagine doing it without seeing the property or reading reviews? All this will be a passing memory as you splash about in the ocean.

  5. I love this poem! I can totally relate! Sometimes I wish I were more of a "go-with-the-flow" kind of girl, as it would make planning vacations so much easier. My husband and I have friends that have done trips where they just find places to stay along the way--no reservations made in advance. That stresses me out! I, like you (it seems), like to do my research, though. It can be exhausting...but I do think that it always pays off in the end. I hope you find the perfect spot to go this summer! :)

  6. So glad you & J are doing all the searching. All we have to do is yea or nay! Looking forward to a delightful week on the beach with family. Love ya, Mom

  7. OH the beach sounds so good...but I would need to lose some weight first! :) I am sure all the stress of planning will be well worth it, especially with your girls! Making those memories!

  8. it is and rentals are SO SO PRICEY these days....take you time and find a great one for you.

  9. Just the idea of a beach vacation brightens my day! Look forward to reading about the vacation later this year!

  10. Love, love, love the ocean! And you are going to have such a good time with your girls!

  11. I liked the suspense you created about what you were planning for! How exciting!

  12. Your poem just brought summer closer.

  13. It's so great to be able to look things up online!
