Mini-Getaway

Last September, a friend and I spent a long weekend at my sister’s lake house. The weather was perfect and we spent long hours just sitting on the deck looking out on the lake, reading and talking. It was wonderful. I think the best part about it was just “getting away.” No classes to drive Emily to, no household chores other than cooking and cleaning up after ourselves. No demands on my time. No crowds or sights to see as in our typical vacation. Even though Emily came with us, she spent hours playing outside, swimming, and otherwise entertaining herself. Months later, I am still looking back on that weekend with nostalgia and looking for another opportunity to get away!

On a closer front, one place I like to “get away” at home, even for just an hour, is my deck. We have a wooded lot, so it is a shady and pleasant place to sit with a book and a glass of ice tea and perhaps a snack this time of year.

One snack I would be sure to enjoy would be is Dove Ice Cream Miniatures. They feature full indulgent ice cream wrapped in real Dove chocolate making them the perfect treat at only 70 calories.  I haven’t tried the new decadent Café Collection which features Java Chip and Cappuccino Flavors, but they sound yummy!

Dove Ice Cream conducted a survey of over 400 mothers and an astonishing 70 percent of these ultimate multi-taskers are taking time for themselves each day. The “My Mini Moment” contest celebrates these cherished moments.
