We all love our Beth and have felt a huge loss during her absence this month. It's like not seeing a close member of your own family and I miss her very much, as I'm sure all within her blogging circles do. But why all the secrecy and sneaking around? What is Beth really up to?
Let's face it...we all know Beth has a flair for the mysterious. After all, she won't even show the world her beautiful face, but instead, opts for a cute avatar on her blog and facebook page. This helps her create that air of mystery that keeps us all eager to know her better and to lean on every word of wisdom that comes from her blog. We just can't get enough. That's why this unexplained absence has left us all shaken and consumed with curiosity.
Unfortunately for Beth, her careful plotting and planning in secrecy were no match for my powers of deduction and sheer nosiness and I was able to decipher her well hidden plans. Here is where Beth really is.
She and the Hubs have decided it is time to start a new chapter in their lives. Finally, it will be their time to live the life they have always dreamed of. Trouble is, they can't decide just where they should start their new adventure. Beth has the heart of an artist so maybe an artist colony in the beautiful forested countryside of southern Indiana. But then, she and the Hubs both love the majesty and beauty of the mountains...that has to be considered. And, to make the decision even harder, she can't quite shake the romantic allure of a quaint little cottage on a deserted beach. How can they make such an important decision?
So is born the idea of a long, quiet getaway for two. A romantic adventure that could decide the course of the rest of their lives. Starting in Indiana, they would spend some time in each of the settings that had filled their dreams. First, the artist colony where they would leisurely stroll around the area, getting to know the locals and getting a taste of what it would be like to live there. From there they would travel to Tennessee where they would rent a beautiful cabin in the mountains, exploring life on both the Tennessee and the North Carolina sides, finding what life there would have to offer. Last, but not least, they would drive through North Carolina, stopping to check out the pottery makers community around Asheboro. Leaving from there, they will finally reach their final destination...a sleepy little community on the North Carolina coastline.
Completing their 2 weeks of exploration and quality time spent together, they will return home to spend even more quality time with the grands and the rest of their family. Once the vacation time is over Beth and the Hubs will have lots of time to review the many pictures, brochures, notes and other memorabilia from their special trip. Then will come the time for serious decisions. But for now, they are having the month that will make memories for a lifetime.
Until next time...that's my view.
