This was my view over the weekend as I walked along the beach with two of my best friends. We’ve been talking about a girls weekend away since our kids were babies. Our oldest are all in middle school, so it was about time! We relaxed, we laughed, we shopped, we read, I wrote. It was just enough time to clear our minds and take a deep breath before our families missed us too much and we had to get back. 🙂
In the town of Bethany, Delaware, the adorable
bookstore Bethany Beach Books was open for business and we browsed for a good hour. Check-out the great sign they had set-up as we walked in the front door. I bought each of my kids a new book and picked up a copy of Pete the Cat and the New Guy for myself. As a special education teacher, I loved the recurring message, “Don’t be sad, don’t be blue! There is something everyone can do!”
It was a much needed weekend away. Sometimes we need to slow down and enjoy the little moments. It will make us better writers, friends and people.
