People often talk about taking family vacations. Well, I’m going to talk instead about a FRIEND vacation. I just got back from a long holiday weekend at a lake house with dear friends that I made back in college. Eleven women, getting together to celebrate, well, us.
When we get together each year, we are transported back to our college years, but we also recognize the women we have now become. Pretty powerful stuff. We share our experiences over the and laugh until our stomachs hurt.
In reality, I guess you could say we are a family of our own making – so maybe this is a family vacation as well!
There is a power in creating a family. Much like the characters in my books, who often find that family isn’t necessarily what we’re born into. For Misha, he has the wonder of both. His BSR teammates Kyle, Jean Luc, Jason, Talia, and even Sabrina are as important as his actual Shamat family and clan.
So spending time with my friends/family – or what I’m going to call my “framily” is important and rejuvenating. You’ll be able to celebrate with Misha and his framily in two short weeks! Stay tuned…
