Take a Mini-Vacation

June 18, 2013

in the generous life

From the Generous Wife archive:

There was a snafu over vacation time for a friend of mine. What that meant was that there would be no typical vacation for him and his family this summer. Serious bummer.

I have to hand it to them though. They are being creative with little mini-vacations, day trips and weekend fun.

Paul and I are having to do much the same this summer. We can’t take off for a couple of weeks, but we can take the day off to do something fun and we will be able to sneak away for a couple of days here and there.

My point is, sometimes there are constricting issues in your life. Don’t let that stall out the fun. Think outside of the box for couple and family time. Camp in the back yard, play tourist in your own town or have weekly dates on the cheap. Think about what you love to do and what you have available in terms of time, energy and money. How can you have some fun time off in a smaller or less expensive way?
