a second honeymoon
My husband and I just got back from what our kids have been calling our "second honeymoon" (anyone ever read that Berenstein Bears' book?) in Spain. It was bliss. We traipsed through Madrid, Toledo, Sevilla and Granada (Sevilla smells like orange blossoms), in no rush at all and doing a lot of walking and talking. I brought my paints and our favorite thing was to find a pretty spot, sit, and paint while my very funny husband entertained me. But one word of warning to anyone headed that way - no matter how delicious you think "churros con chocolate" sound, it is best to go slow when you have an empty stomach and jet lag!
