I was really enjoying meeting a wide variety of entrepreneurs in my community. My dad had retired and put me in charge of his business. I had worked for him for years and had learned so much about what I needed to know to run the business myself. I ran into a guy named Ian Filippini when I was at a business luncheon a few months back. He seemed like a really nice guy, and we talked a lot about travel, which is one of his hobbies. It was a nice talk and made me think about the fact that I would like a chance to get away, too.

During our talk that night, I had learned that Ian had published quite a number of posts online about the places that he visits friequently. A few days after I got home, I remembered him talking about it, so I looked them up online. I was particularly interested in a post that he had made that talked about some great things to see and do in Atlanta. I had never been there before, and it was a place that I had always wanted to visit. I knew that I only had enough time to get away for a weekend, so I wrote down all the places he suggested as placed to go. My husband and I left for our trip the very next Friday night after work.

Our weekend getaway was just what I needed to help me feel energized and ready to take on the business again as soon as I got back. My husband and I realized that it would be good to get away on different weekends here and there more often. We had such a good time that we found that we smiled and held hands often. We plan to get away every few months or so.
