TGIF....Hosted by GReads

This Friday's Question:

Summer Love: Where is your ideal place to take a 
summer vacation & get lost in a book?

What a great question!  If my pre-married self answered this question, it would by far be the Rose Garden in Salzburg, Austria.  I had to chance travel across the pond after my first year teaching and fell in love with Austria.  I did spend several hours in that rose garden reading and writing in a journal.  I would love to go back some day when my son could enjoy the history of the trip.  (as soon as I find my pictures I will add one to this post)
Now that I'm married with an energetic little boy, my ideal summer vacation place where I could get lost in a book would probably be a beach (outside of Texas, I love my home state, but not the best beaches) so the guys can play in the water while I soak up some much needed vitamin D and read.  Or, if I we stayed close, then anywhere in the Hill Country of Texas where I can hear the water running and birds chirping while I read.  


  1. It all sounds great. I'm not sure I would be able to do much reading if I were in Austria. There's so much to see. It's on my list of places to visit some day! (I love the Sound of Music!)

  2. Quiet time is divine. I love going to the beach as well. So relaxing. :)

  3. Those sound like good places to go. I am a little sand phobic, hate it when it gets in my toes.

    Here's my Friday

  5. Oh how cool. I'd love to go to the Rose Garden!!!
