For the last month, my sister and I have been talking about the family vacation in August, everything we're going to do, buy, etc. Little did she know I planned to head up to western New York this week with my parents! We got here yesterday after a surprisingly quick 2 day drive. Usually that drive is nearly the death of me, but this time around it seemed to fly. Everyone was so surprised, which was completely the point.
I have to say, the weather is a shock to my system. Not just the cold, but the whole "no leaves on the trees" thing. Usually I'm here in the autumn or early winter, and I kind of expected everything to look different. But it doesn't. So now I keep wanting to Christmas shop! Nothing wrong with that.
Only thing that could make this better was if Husband was here. But, alas, it wasn't possible. Maybe this summer? I hope so.
