#am blogging By the Time You Read This

My husband doesn’t like traveling. Other than taking our kids on short summer vacations, the occasional long weekend for ourselves, and writers’ conferences for me, we’ve only been in an airplane together twice in thirty-five years. Finally, trip number three has arrived.

This is our 30th wedding anniversary year, and as a gift to me, we’re going someplace warm. Just in time too. As you’ll see from the photo, this is what I’m leaving.

 This is what we’re going to!

Porta Vallarta

Yes. Puerto Vallarta! It still seems surreal. It won’t be a long trip. Both of us have day jobs and other responsibilities, yet even he is thinking that this could be the beginning of a new era for us, if all goes well.

So, with new passports, pesos in our pockets, and shots up to date, we’ll be on the plane by the time you read this. I’ll be completely off line for a little over a week and won’t be blogging for a couple of weeks, so if I don’t respond to comments, etc., please forgive me. I’ll catch up with you when I return.
