You know the feeling; it usually starts building right after you make your reservations. A slow excitement kicks in, a happy anticipation that soon (although, not soon enough) youll be back. You cant explain it; logically you know there may be more exotic or beautiful places out there. Heck, some folks think it doesnt even compare to its name sake but all that doesnt matter to you. All you can think is soon, so very soon youll be there. And then it comes, the moment you turn onto Timberland Dr. You smile a quiet smile full of joy that says YES!! Finally, Im here & in the tiny amount of time it takes to pass through the gates until you finally see her, you are completely, blissfully happy. Is it your imagination or do you think she smiles back at you, a feeling that no matter how long its been since you last visited, she is glad to see you, welcomes you home, whispers to you of a week full of good times. Yes, you definitely know the feeling, All the previous weeks, months and even years of waiting, all the times real life dropped an anvil on your head, have all been worth it for this feeling.
