We are back....

I didn't want to publicize what we were doing, where we were going since our home would be empty...Now we are home and I can share with you that we went to the northeast, to Boston and surrounding places.  It was definitely winter there, and we did what we could to enjoy!  I have to say it seems like a long time since I was dressed in four layers and not sweating!! HA!  We made the best of the weather and traveled around to sort of avoid the wet, windy weather.  We visited Boston, then up to Kennebunkport and Portland, Maine.  We also drove down to Newport, Rhode Island, and LOVED our visit there. You can read about them here

 The mansions there, or as they call them the "summer" homes, are amazing.  We loved touring those.  And Newport is a beautiful town!!!  I would highly recommend including it in a vacation to the Northeast USA.  We also toured Concord and Lexington. What we enjoyed most, however, WAS the time to just be together, not thinking about work or home, and seeing things we'd never seen before.  That was the best part.  So now we are home, to play catch up with mail, laundry, housework, etc.  I have tried to keep up with a few of my blog friends, but know that I missed many of you and what was happening in your world.  It's a lot easier to semi-unplug when you're away from home, but there were a few evenings, that we enjoyed quiet time and were on our computers.  It was a GREAT week.  More about it later......

Welcome home Suzanne, and I can assure you that wasn't winter, hee hee. Just a little reminder of worse things to come in regards to the weather.

OH, what fun!! So glad you got to do this with your dear hubby. Isn't it great to get away sometimes?

It sounds just wonderful! One of my favorite places to visit and take the family was Lexington and Concord. There was just something about standing on that bridge and thinking about the world altering event that started there.

I have been busily away from blogland too. I hope to be back in the groove soon.
