I love that Tony believes in the power of just getting away as much as I do. He and I see eye-to-eye on the value of time. Yes, a week down in Florida is warm and relaxing and far removed from everyday life, but sometimes all it really takes to get back into a good space is a day or three away. A day spent reading by the lake while Tony fishes does wonders for my attitude after an especially long week. And at the height of a busy summer, sometimes an extended weekend is the key to sanity.
So, near or far, for 1 day or 2 weeks, travel is vital. And being with someone who feels the same way has proven to be more important to me than I realized.
