Life's a beach
Ok, I have to post this, because this used to be the time that we would visit my folks in Long Island, spending lazy days at the beach and having great dinner's at night. Over the years the trips have shifted to August, but with great excitement, we are heading east on the 23rd. I cannot wait. My parents house on Long Island, and the surrounding special environs, are some of my favorite places in the world. I love sharing that with our children, but it really is so bittersweet without my mom. My stomach still lurches when I think about being there without her. But I know it will be beautiful, and I really need a break!
