What is it about the outdoors that makes breakfast taste so good?

And sleep … it feels so good when you breath the crisp air.

Before the cold weather hit southern Oregon (we’ve had a beautiful autumn here in Oregon!) my girlfriends and I snuck away to their cabin with our daughters.

Sneaking away: intentional planning, living freely, no clock, putting the normal schedule aside, learning to rest and enjoy.

To have rest we must make it a priority. It means we stop, and sometimes that takes effort (especially for busy women).

After an easy breakfast of Cinnamon Chip French Toast (my daughter’s all-time favorite) we cleaned up, packed up, and headed home. A 24-hour getaway. A special time with friends.

Knowing it takes effort to make a getaway happen, do you feel it’s worth it when you’re back home and reflecting on your time away?
