By the time you read this post, I'll be on my way to Tobago to celebrate my 15th wedding anniversary with J and two of our friends who married exactly two weeks after us. We planned this trip early this year and it's hard to believe it's almost here.
I have more than 2,000 pages of reading material loaded onto my Nook and a paperback to bring along in case I get tired of the feel of the Nook in my hand and start longing for good old paper between my fingers.
I'm looking forward to the beach, the books and a relaxed pace. I've somehow turned into one of those people who communicate by text, e-mail and all things internet. I mostly like this - texting over talking being a plus to me - but it will be lovely to be on an island where I'll know only three other people.
Here's hoping your week gives you a chance to unplug, in whatever way you like. I'll return next week to regal you with tales of the Caribbean.
