It had been two years since my last vacation and as June 5th got closer, I looked forward to getting away with my family (including my two dogs) for some much-needed rest and relaxation.
The requirements for this type of vacation were few. A simple clean home with a pool, shopping close by, and a variety of restaurants to choose from for dinners. The pictures online and description of the house in Marco Island checked all the boxes and more.
It was going to be a glorious, relaxing, without a pressing agenda week! As the day for us to depart got closer, it was easy to imagine how relaxing my week away would be and how re-energized I would feel when I returned home.
