I am going to go on quite a few vacations this year.... and I am not sorry about that.
Plans have started solidifying - Savannah for a long weekend (one of my favorite things to do - no "we have to do this" plans, just eat, drink, and geek out on architecture), and NYC for a few days (bringing along my sister who somehow, with all of her travelling, has never been to NY). The fall getaway is still TBD - still not sure if we want to do something domestic (Las Vegas - one of my cousins is the head of security at a major hotel/casino on The Strip) or just head south of the U.S. to sit on a beach.I have some work travel front-loaded this year, combined with several weekend trips down to south Georgia to get my parents' old house ready to go on the market, so we probably won't go anywhere for vacation until May at the earliest - probably just sitting on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean. We also used to head down to Savannah every year for a long weekend around Fathers Day (no specific reason tied to the occasion, just seemed to be a weekend that worked for us), and I'd like to do that again this year. Nothing concrete beyond those two so far, just the possibility of a couple of things tied to work travel for each of us (flying out to meet and extending the trip a few days on our own dime). If neither of those work out, we'll figure out somewhere to go in the fall.
