Think you can’t afford a vacation this year? This is one of my top ten ideas for fun and relaxation close to home
Enjoy local fairs, festivals and seasonal celebrations.
Most cities and even small towns have at least one. Whether a holiday celebration, flower, harvest or music festival, event honoring a local historical figure, Renaissance Faire or chicken festival these can be quite fun.
Some offer free admission while others charge. If you going outside prepare for weather conditions and don’t forget sunscreen. Take the family, leave the phone at home. Have fun, you are on vacation!
A Note from Rogene: We are all painfully aware of the tragic events of recent days in Aurora Colorado (suburban Denver). Our hearts go out to the families of those lost and to the survivors who will be dealing with trying to recover both physically and emotionally in days to come. While it is appropriate to grieve and feel sadness during this time, we must fight the temptation to let fear take over and control us. Evil only wins if it causes us to change our lives out of fear. Difficult as it may be life goes on. Don’t let evil win.
