Spring break growing up was something that I always looked forward too. My mom always took the week off to spend it with her girls. It always involved a shopping trip, to Limited Too or Old Navy. I also remember a several year stretch where we went to the Hunt-Phelan home, a historical antebellum home on Beale St., during spring break with Jessica and Ms. Goldie (our sister & Mom whom we do not share DNA) Apparently, we were fascinated by this huge, old, gorgeous house. There were trips to the zoo, the Children's Museum, and the Pink Palace. These weeks were filled with eating out and lots of virgin strawberry daquiris. It is fun to think back to all the memories that were created during spring break. It is also ironic that I was married in one of these spots that were so frequented in my childhood.
As we got older, more and more time during spring break was spent with friends. Spring break my senior year of high school was one of the most memorable. I had a week full of fun with the women who I still consider my very best friends. We didn't go anywhere, we spent every minute of it in the Memphis area but we still reference this week when discussing our funnest times.

So as next week approaches, I look forward spending the week with none other than my Mom, sister, and niece and also all the ladies who have made Spring Break one of my favorite times of the year!
