When we think vacation, we often think of booking hotels and the expense of eating out and airfare. it can be as much of a headache to plan a vacation as it is to live the life that required a vacation in the first place!
We all need to take breaks, now more than ever. And my friend Tanya Madoff has been my reminder that vacations can be a beautiful group effort every year.
A few weeks ago, I made my annual trek to Stinson Beach for a long weekend celebrating Tanya's birthday in the company of wonderful friends I've gotten to know the past four times I have participated in this tradition. Tanya's simple strategy is this: rent a house with good friends, let everyone sign up for a meal and cook for the group, don't have any huge agenda, provide coloring materials and a hot tub and you've got the best vacation ever for less than the price of a plane ticket these days. Genius.
I stole Tanya away from the festivities for one of the reflective deep chats we love having on these weekends. Join us!
