So I gathered a few necessities (mostly snacks and magazines) in my overnight bag. Kissed my husband. I love him. Squeezed the life out of the kids and left for 24 hours of marvelous-ness. My girlfriends (also exhausted, brilliant mothers of small children) planned a little beach trip. It wasn't far or long or expensive... but it was fab... and way overdue. We sat in the sand, laid by the pool, read, talked, ate, laughed, shopped, ate, (and dare I say...) SLEPT! I'm back home now... refreshed and sunburned and still giggly from late night nonsense. Happy Saturday!
