That's right, I'm on vacation!
This is BIG news for two reasons.
One: Mr. KK and I haven't been on vacation for a whole year.
Two: The biggest project of the century is going on at work. And I left, right in the middle of it. And I haven't looked back. (It only took 3 days for me to get rid of the guilt of leaving my team, who I know are working pretty much round the clock. And I only look at email occasionally. I swear.)
The best part? We are spending the week in Newport, Rhode Island with my parents, Mr. KK's parents and both dogs. Oh yeah, it's a family affair.
And our parents are doing their best to make us as uncomfortable as possible – making jokes about sleeping together, going commando and wearing thongs.
Per my usual, I'm stalking the weather. It's not beach weather, but it's sunny and breezy, perfect for enjoying cocktails and lunch al fresco. We are definitely eating our way around Newport, too.
Perhaps the best part of the trip so far, is my Mother – who is technologically challenged – and her first-ever digital camera. Every picture I take, she runs over and takes the exact same photo, no matter how many times I try and explain that only ONE of us needs to take the photo, that's the beauty of digital cameras and sharing photos. And her camera has this feature, that when you take a photo it flashes "Did somebody blink?" so you'll check the photo. But Mom takes this literally. After. Every. Photo.
Click! Then Mom yells, "Someone blinked!"
And I can't help but laugh and reply, "Mom, it's a statue."
