You Won't See ME Today- I'll Be Here

I need a break.
A serious break.
It has been go-go-go
for the past few weeks.
There have been some
family "issues".
Stressful issues.

This is just a one-day break
but it IS a break.

We will be  here..
One of my favorite places
to un-wind..
to just BE.

I'll BE here-
where the shore looks like

And the hotel looks like this...

And the view from the room looks like this..

And during the drive along
 Lake Superior I see a spot
that looks like this..

And, like Pavlov's  dog,
I go to this....
A perfect day away!
Happy Monday!

Have a wonderful time.
It's so good to be able to step away from the source of our stress.
You relax and let go!

What? You wouldn't rather hang out in front of a computer screen like the rest of us? LOL

Have a wonderful day Diana!

Hugs to you!!

Looks like a great place to get away from it all (or away from us all). I wonder if you plan your vacations with Starbucks locations in mind? Nope, can't go to Paris, because there's not a Starbucks at the top of the Eifel Tower.

Oh how beautiful. Can I come along too? I need a serious break as well. I can smell the clean air, and just look at that view. Oh and did you say Starbuck's? Oh you are a daring one.

I hope you find some peace and guidance today during your visit away sweet friend. Enjoy yourself. Many hugs and much love from Phoenix, Sherry

Well, Good for you!! & I am hoping that as I write this you are relaxing & enjoying the Beautiful view.
We did the same thing last night... instead of coming home from up north.. we decided late, just to stay & enjoy another night.. : )
& does Starbucks pay you to advertise?? They should... You have to be a #1 fan.... : )

Holy Cats Diana, I didn't know you had a blog! You never mentioned it all the times you visited mine, and the of course your slacking off on the day I find it!
Seriously... have a great day off, and when you get back you will find that I am your newest follower.

I hope your little break turns out to be just what you needed!

Gypsy Heart said...

How beautiful! I'm sure it's a lot cooler than the 106' here. Soooooo tired of these triple digits day after day.

I hope you were able to relax my friend. You so deserve some peace and quiet.

Hey girlfriend...been enjoying some R&R and getting over a summer cold and popping in to see what's new with you. Hope all is well and sending you hugs! Loving the stone wall, he did a great job!!!

Romeo said...

I am so glad that you were able to get away, even if for only a day. Me? Purrsonally, you'd had to have used a chain and tow truck to get me to leave something that wonderful after only a day. Seriously though, you so deserved this! Hoping this helped to get you through the week.
