Plan a Weekend Getaway with the Girls — You Won’t Regret It

It all started five years ago when some friends and I met up at our 15th college reunion. Every year since then we have managed to get away for a few days, and here we are at our 20th reunion last weekend.

This article I wrote for Parentables tells about our experience and gives some tips for planning your kids-free trip.

Few things feel as good as spending a couple of days relaxing with friends. Especially when, in real life, conversations are more like snippets truncated by, “He hit me!” and relaxing means collapsing in bed with a stack of mail.

Read more at Parentables, where I blog twice a week.

    Last summer, my girlfriends and I went on the most relaxing vacation in the Florida Keys. We found an incredible rental in the awesome Ocean Reef Community in Key Largo. Elaine knew Bob from Swenson & Ecuyer Realty and he found us this perfect condo right on the breathtaking Marina. Bob and his team provided excellent concierge service, that catered to our every needs. We did everything… scuba diving, tennis, sailing, golfing, etc.. The experience was amazing!

    I just enjoyed a weekend in NYC with my old college roommates, so this article is timely. I shared it with them – hoping to inspire us to get it together again next year. Thanks Amy!

      Hi Samantha,

      I’m so glad you got to get away with your college roommates. Sounds like fun — and I hope you get to do it again!

      Take care,
