The Perfect Time


A Girls’ Trip to Italy … it was always a dream of mine, but I kept postponing the idea because I was waiting for the perfect time. Then this summer, during our big family road trip in which every day was an adventure waiting to happen, I realized that there will never be a perfect time. The only thing that happens when you wait for the “perfect time” is that time slips through your fingers; furthermore, how do you know it’s not the perfect time unless you move forward? With those thoughts in mind, after we returned home I announced the Girls’ Trip to Italy for 2015. It took a leap of faith.

Yesterday, a good friend of mine stopped by – a lovely surprise on a rainy Sunday afternoon – and officially announced that she would be joining the group. So far we have 20 confirmed travelers. It's been an exciting, scary, thrilling adventure ... and we haven't even left home yet.
The perfect time? How about now?
