I have two things to tell you.
1. Last week I went home to Texas. I found a KILLER price on a round-trip, direct-flight ticket and jumped on the airplane with my 9-year-old daughter in tow. It was SO nice being home. The weather was fantastic. Seeing family was wonderful. Being around the familiar was refreshing.
But you know my favorite part of my spontaneous trip home? Seeing the sun set.
I love seeing the sun slide down under the horizon. It is just sort of special to me, for a couple of reasons. But more recently it’s special to me because there’s no where to see it set in Toledo! Unless you have access to a downtown building that faces West. And well, I don’t… so…. yeah. I miss it.
In fact, on Saturday night when we got back to Toledo around midnight and fell into bed exhausted from the trip, the last thing I said to Lazy Dad through half-asleep-but-I-meant-to-tell-you grogginess was, “Oh! I got to see the sun set! It was wonderful….”
Good grief. That just made me tear up telling you about it. Remind me to tell you why the sunset is so special to me sometime, mkay?
Also, remind me to be less emotional.
2. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I wanted to give you wonderful readers a chance to win a $100 Kroger gift card! (Also good at their family of stores.)
