“Where have I been?” You might be asking……
Am I exhausted? Yes, right now I am.
Do I need serious sleep? Completely deprived right now.
Am I sick of Summer? Not sure how to answer that, but looking for some schedule and me time.
I have finally found the spot in the world that I want to continually vacation for summer family reunions.
I have been searching for a local spot, summer after summer, that I would repeatedly want to return to with my children and create a tradition.
For years, we have tested out nearly every great spot from Bar Harbor to Orlando. We have tried Martha’s Vineyard, Hilton Head and everything in between.
I just wanted one spot that we all want to return to.
I wanted that spot to be Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard…..I really did…..but…. drum roll…
Today, I told myself, “I think it is going to be Newport, Rhode Island,”….. as I departed our vacation in Newport, this is the spot. We have been there half a dozen times, but only once with the whole family intact and it was Christmas…In addition, it is only 2 hours from my home…..
Elizabeth, will have many decades to continue to enjoy it. Here she is this afternoon flying kites.
Hillary is bummed….it took 18 summers to find it. I told her not to be in despair, she will bring the future husband and children there…….eventually….in the far off future.
I have finally found the spot that works for us without having to be a Romney, Marriott or Kennedy, and NO! We didn’t stay in that house in the photo above….I wish.
Since in order to really enjoy some of the destinations I wanted to select, you have to have the right set up for crying out loud and be married to the right famous cousins.
I finally could envision a destination that will become tradition.
I love Newport, I fell in love the first year we moved here. But now I really love it.
More to come tomorrow- or maybe the next day….Hey c’mon it is summer…cut me some blogging slack
