Spring Break!

Woman on the beach at Gulf Shores

I saw a post on Facebook Friday from a friend who was hours away from her spring break starting. Ohhhhhh, I am so ready for spring! How ’bout you? Though I really can’t complain – our winter has been practically non-existent. Just a few minutes ago, I walked the dogs without a coat on. Just clipped their leashes on and walked out the door. In March! In Missouri!

But still . . . there’s something magical about Spring Break. As a broke college kid, I never did anything for spring break. And I always felt a bit cheated about that. Maybe that’s why I find myself jealously reading spring break posts on Facebook, then browsing the internet looking for travel deals. As a matter of fact, we just booked a trip to the beach in May. My idea of a perfect beachy vacation would be lounging beside the pool or in the sand, listening to the cry of sea gulls while losing myself in a good book (have you gotten your copy of Fatal Obsession yet?). Oh, with a sweet icy concoction in a thermal mug sitting on the table next to me. The salty smell of the ocean and the coconut fragrance from my sunscreen would tickle my nose. And I’d be wearing a big floppy hat.

Ahhhh . . . I’m ready for that trip. How ’bout you? Tell me your idea of a perfect spring break day.
