Staycations Can be Amazing!
Each year my kids go off to camp for the week and my husband and I take a staycation. We stay at home in our quiet and clean house and enjoy the local sites without having to pay for babysitting!
What’s really cool about living in New York is that there is so much to do. You’ve got the Pocono Mountains in the North, the beaches on the Jersey and Long Island Shore, and of course Manhattan with the Broadway shows and shopping!
In the summer there are always free concerts and outdoor performances. The best advice I got when moving to New York was to “live like a tourist.”
Isn’t it true that people that come to visit your area get to do the best things? So we figured, instead of leaving New York for vacation we would try and discover and enjoy the wonderful gems of our area. We had a great time!!
Our Marriage Secret
My husband and I have been married for sixteen years and I truly believe that one of our biggest marriage secrets is prayer. We both pray to God. We give thanks for all of our blessings and go to Him (frequently) whenever we encounter a struggle. But when we approach God, we don’t just talk.
We listen and receive the guidance and correction solicited. Our success lies in our belief that we actually need a power stronger than ourselves to help us when things get tough in our relationship. Marriage is hard work and we’ll take all the power and strength we can get.
I've been married to my best friend Bryan Murray since the year 2000. Now we have four incredible children and a super full life with extended family and friends.
