Vacation from our Vacation

(Photo of Mt.Timpanogos from Heber, Utah)

Why is it so exciting to head home after a vacation
Just the possibility of being there, sleeping once again
In a comfortable bed that you know, with your own pillow
Not having to adjust to others-like hotel neighbors or family
By being quiet or being annoyed by their late or early noises

So, why don't we all just stay at home and save our money
Because ­we need a break, a vacation, a change of pace
To appreciate what we have and compare a new place
With our normal everyday life we have made at home
Then we can relax and put our photos into our scrapbook
And remember our wonderful vacation until we travel again


  1. I think you hit it on the head, Lin. Vacations are fun and so is going home for the very reasons you mentioned.

  2. Yep, you got it right. Traveling is great, but there's no place like home.

  3. Vacations give new perspective to,'There's no place like home.'
    And so, their value doubles=getting away and coming home.

  4. What was that you suggested doing with our money? Save it? ha ha ha ha ha... that's hysterical! After we buy our groceries, fill up the tank with gas (for the SECOND time in just under a week) and treat ourselves to the 25cent ice creajm cone that we were just charced $1.75 for... we don'[t have money left over to save.
    Okay, I exaggerate, but not by much.

    I can't think of anything better than the excitement of leaving for a holiday... except maybe the anticipation of opening the door to home and seeing a clean house extending her warmth to our travel weary bones. You are RIGHT ON!!

  5. OMGosh!! I love that picture!!! :o) So pretty! Hugs, Ash~
