This year, on the first weekend of October, I was smack dab in the middle of an art retreat! For that reason, I didn't go on my annual jaunt with my cousins, Cherry and Sissy. I loved having the retreat, and if I had it to do over again, I'd choose it every time. Buuuutttt.... I really missed going to Canton too! So....
I called mom and Staci and we made a very impromptu decision to hit to interstate and go take us an adventure. After all... my word this year IS "Explore"!!
The next morning, at the crack of dawn, we went down to have breakfast in the hotel lobby. Mom runs into her college roommate! How bout that for coincidence?!
(But if they get a doctor's prescription and bring me an insurance card, I can help them with that! haha)
Don't negate the importance of taking these spontaneous trips with those you love. We went on a Wednesday night, took the day off Thursday, shopped all day, and hightailed it back to Monroe in time for work on Friday! Lots of memories made!!
