My 28 year old daughter, who works and lives between Ferrara, Italy and New York City, recently had a week-long vacation (a rare event). Here is how she spent her time.
-She came home to Connecticut
-She spent time with us (her parents)! We went to vintage shops, spent time at the beach, and had dinner at one of our favorite restaurants.
-She visited my father (He is 88 and was thrilled to see her!).
-She had a dental appointment (It wasn’t all just fun!).
-She shopped at Goodwill with her grandmother.
-She took walks.
-She read in the hammock.
-She went to the beach with a college friend.
-She went for a run every morning.
-She watched Jeopardy.
-She just hung out.
I think the way a person spends their vacation time says a lot about what they value. My daughter’s vacation plans made me smile. I love the person she has become (and is becoming).
