If that title didn't get you excited, you might have to wait until Christmas for a gift of this size!
We think we've struck gold!
By gold, we mean, we've found almost 6 weeks of extra vacation for you to get excited about...give or take the exact minutes in a lingering sunset.
On March 11th, we'll all run to our clocks (at least the ones we still have to adjust since our cell phones do it automatically) to set them ahead one hour.
That's one more hour of, wait for it...DAYLIGHT...per day!!!
That is the "vacation gold" we are speaking of.
And before we have to set them back again in November, we'll see almost 6 weeks of that extra sunlight in our world, when you tally them up by an hour a day.
What could you do with an extra hour of sunlight a day?
The possibilities are endless!
The reason we are writing about this, is to encourage you. See...the thing is..."spring break" is coming. And eventually "summer vacation". And it's those two phrases that sometimes can be frustrating to think about as a family.
You know...the question when someone says "Are you going away for spring break?" OR..."Where are you going for summer vacation?" They say it with a huge grin, because they can't wait to tell you where they are headed.
And we wrap our happiness inside the box and bow of one week here or there. Now, don't get us wrong, there is nothing wrong with a family getaway. But we also think there is equal value to taking a little piece of everyday and making it as fun as a getaway. That's where the almost 6 weeks of vacation thing came to mind.
While it's not always feasible to head out for a consecutive week of vacation in the spring or summer, we can take advantage of an extra hour of daylight/hopefully SUNNY light right here at home.
Your family can create all sorts of fun experiences in and around your home, our community, and the Chautauqua County area.
So the next time some asks where you are headed for vacation and you know you are staying close to home, tell them you are still planning it. And when they ask what you are planning, tell them 6 weeks worth of family bonding, laughing, and hilarity.
When they look at you like you are rich, because they think you are booking flights, hotels, and getaways for 6 weeks...tell them you are, indeed rich.
In clever ideas that keep coming! :)
That list goes on and on. And when we leverage the one extra hour of daylight we get per day, into one extra hour of stay-cation power with our family and friends...that's a game-changer!
