My weekend in Breckenridge reminded me how so many people have an annual retreat that they look forward to all year. My sister-in-law Heather takes her family to the eastern seaboard each summer and rents a beach house. I have friends who camp in Estes Park, Colorado each year. I know people who pilgrimmage to Lake Powell, Martha's Vineyard, Flaming Gorge, Lake Tahoe, the Oregon coast, and San Diego.
Of course it's fun to try out new vacation spots, but the great thing about finding your own, personal happy place is that over the years you come to know each other. You learn the roads, the best places to eat, the best hotels and rental properties, and long after you've gone home you can day dream about next time. Today I am dreaming about my next time in Breckenridge!
So, what is your personal happy place?
