Although last week was a short work week with the July 4th holiday and I probably should have been working all this week, I escaped to Michigan with my daughter for a short but fabulous visit. I don’t get to see my sister nearly enough and my daughter is heading to college in just over a month. So I gladly took a bit of a break and I’m so happy I did; I don’t think I’ve laughed as much in a long time. We did a lot of really fun things but one thing I truly enjoyed was sitting around her kitchen tables creating collages. My sister is an artist and she fills her world with beauty. It was such a pleasure to talk, laugh, and create art together. Even though it was a quick trip, I’m coming back to NJ energized and ready to dig back into work. My heart is full after a few days with these beautiful women.
