Time for a Getaway?

Photo by Missy Tippens

Missy, here. I just got back from a quick three-day vacation. My husband took a couple of days off to add to Monday's day off. I didn't think I needed a getaway, and was wishing I could take some work with me. But I ended up enjoying it! I realized how badly I needed that quick getaway.

We went to my husband's parents' farm house, a very rustic house (of course, no Internet!) in a quiet oasis that sits in the middle of a busy Metro-Atlanta county. Once you pull off the main highway, you go along a road with trees arching over it (see the photo) and feel as if you've stepped into another world. I believe I can feel my blood pressure going down every time I travel that road. :)

When's the last time you took a short vacation? I think sometimes we don't even realize we need to get away until we get there. Could it be time for you to take a break just to relax and spend time with family or friends?
