Recently, we spent several days in our hometown of Luling, LA. This is a trip we make multiple times a year. For me, it feels like going home. Home to the house I grew up in. Home to the neighborhood where I met my husband. Home to the people I know and love.
We spent days just being together-with our loved ones. Our days consisted of leisurely morning walks, cousin fun in the backyard, late night chats. Nothing exceptional, yet exceptionally wonderful.
Togetherness-The Real Magic
Yes, on our latest travel adventure, we didn't visit any new or exciting destinations. But, I slowed down and spent time with my kiddos, my nieces, my mom, my sister, my grandparents. And it was magical!
We went strawberry picking and had fun playing in the fields. We went for a walk on the levee, and we talked about the flood patterns of the Mississippi River. We enjoyed English-style Afternoon Tea and laughed together. My youngest got to taste a real Rainbow Snowball-just like in his favorite book!
Why do I love to travel? It's simple. With each new adventure, I fall in love with my life and my loved ones all over again!
