First, I want to thank all of you for the lovely comments and messages. The response was overwhelmingly positive. I honestly didn't expect that, so THANK YOU.
So, what's a girl to do after she makes a life-altering announcement for all the world to see? She escapes to the (freezing cold, deserted) beach, of course.
This is the fourth year running that I have met up with a dozen or so friends for a week away in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. This is the week I look forward to more than any other the entire year, and this year I need it more than I ever have.
I'll try to post throughout the week like I usually do, but no promises.
I may just decide to not leave the couch at all.
You can read about the previous years' meet ups HERE, HERE, and HERE.
