Spring break essay in Metro Parent
"We need to take a break and decompress so we can be at our best at work—and at home. Maybe we should ask if the life we’re working so hard to create is fun to live?” ~Tina Hallis
Few people need a spring vacation more than moms with young kids. In the April issue of Metro Parent, I share a memory of my visit to Captiva Island, where Anne Morrow Lindbergh wrote her classic seaside meditation, Gift from the Sea -- a book that has resonated with meaning throughout the various caregiving stages of my life. You can read the essay online here, or pick up the print edition of the magazine -- it's free -- on local newsstands.
