I'm realizing that W will be leaving our home soon. I'm sad to think that we may not have holidays together much anymore as a family unit. I've always looked forward to our beach holidays, just walking on the beach together, looking for sea shells, checking out sea life in the rock pools, lazing in the pool. Simple pleasures.
Next year when both boys are in college, chances are family holidays will be few & far between. Excited as I am with the changes to come, I am also melancholic.
