Another meme, which I will not post until tomorrow, because I am not going to write it tonight, comes to you from Daring Young Mom. I once asked my boys if I could buy and wear her tee shirt. They said a) I was too old and b) they would be too embarrassed.
But I liked the meme when I read it. It intrigued me. So I thought I would answer it here.

Last night, when he rolled over in his sleep and held me. (Every day is a good day.)

2 favorite vacations
We went to the Appalachian mountains with friends. We hiked, which I love. We did other things too, which I don’t remember as well.
The vacation we DIDN’T take to Florida. We had saved all year for it and the boys said, “Hey, that much money would buy us laptops.” So they got laptops instead.
If you have a special someone you can’t ever say enough about, you’re tagged with this meme. I’ll come read what you have to say if you let me know.
