The Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge is hosted by Long and Short Reviews. This week’s topic is: the last place I traveled to and why.
I don’t get out much. For the most part, my husband and I have always been homebodies, content to stay where we are. Then he got sick and we really couldn’t go anywhere, not without risking him getting worse. Now that he’s gone, I’m not sure if any of that will change or not, but I do have places I’d love to go and see, even if I can’t take him with me any longer.
Our last trip out of town was about six years ago. My mother-in-law was a nurse at one of the local hospitals and discovered one of the doctors she worked with had a rental on the Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach, CA, so they planned to take our girls and go for the week while Troy and I came down for the weekend. It was a really amazing trip and so beautiful. Still don’t think I could live my whole life in California, but it was truly an amazing trip.
The photo we used at Troy’s memorial back in January was actually a picture from this trip with him and the girls making faces at his dad, who was taking the picture. It stuck out like a sore thumb when you were scrolling through the obituaries on the funeral home’s website, but that’s okay, too. He wasn’t ever quite like any of the other people I’ve known in my lifetime, which is probably why I chose him in the first place, right?
Anyway, now I’m getting emotional, so I’ll shut up and post this. ❤ I’m excited to see where and what you’ve all been up to lately!
