Unexpected Vacation // Five Minute Friday — 20 Comments

  1. It’s so good to see you back here! I love the look of your site and the tagline. It speaks of a freshness that I pray you’ll experience in your heart as well. Blessing, my friend!

  2. What fun that you get to meet Diana! Also, what a blessing to have a week away with your hubby :). My vacation is wearing me out, now that my grandson has arrived! The little tornado keeps me on my toes every hour that he’s awake–but what an incredible blessing. Your site looks lovely, and I like your new name and tagline :).

  3. I just recently came back from a nearly year-long sabbatical and it sounds like you and I have kindred hearts on the matter!! Would love to virtual chat sometime, maybe we could be mutually supportive! Blessings to you and hubby on your upcoming vacation and congrats on 30 years!!

    • Hi Amanda. So nice to meet you. I would love to chat sometime. I love my online community; they have become some of my greatest encouragers. I see you are a home school mom. I homeschooled my youngest two while working full time until this year. My youngest son is now in a public school charter and doing very well. Looking forward to reading your blog.

  4. oh yeah! It’s good to see you back and i LOVE your new tagline. Will be so interesting to see where you take it. 🙂 Enjoy that August vacation eh?

  5. Welcome back, sweet friend! We all need to step away from things at one time or another, even good things. So excited for you and your upcoming celebration and time away! You and your hubby will be in my prayers. Blessings on your summer!

  6. I hope you have a wonderful time in California. I visited California last year and had a great time. I look forward to reading more of your posts now that you are back from your blogging break.

    • Hi Jolene. Thanks for stopping by. I’m a California native, born and raised and have lived here all my life. We just never get to the southern part so we are really looking forward to our trip. I hope you will stop by again.

  7. Good to see you again! How wonderful of the Lord to provide for that upcoming vacation. Hope you have a great time! We have had days off at home but have not been able to go anywhere for five years, since we brought my m-i-l to live in our home. I don’t mind – I’m a homebody – but my husband would love to travel. For now we just enjoy a few hours at a time away locally, especially when all the kids are here. We have a wonderful caregiver who comes in a few hours a day.

    • So good to see you here Barbara. It’s hard to get away, especially when we are caring for others. My mother was just diagnosed with lung cancer, and she already is in the beginning stages of dementia. My sister is her main care giver and I try to relief her as much as I can. Have a blessed week.

  8. I so enjoyed your post! This is my first time reading your blog, so I wonder how long you stepped away from it? I can see how that would be restful and necessary in different seasons. Because I now live where we used to vacation, I do feel like I take mini-vacations more often! A walk on the beach or just sitting there reading a book for an hour feeds my need for rest. Blessings on your anniversary and time together in CA! Your FMF neighbor #43

    • Hi Beth! Thank you for stopping by. This time I was away about 3 months, but over the last year or so I’ve been in and out. I just celebrated 10 years of blogging and hope to be more regular again soon. Glad to have met you!
