Today I am having one of those days where I wish I could dismiss the responsibilities of being an adult and just escape into the life of a 10-year-old. A favorite childhood memory is having a slumber party with my friends and building a fort with all the blankets we could find and the only light was that of a flashlight. Who says building forts has to be just a childhood activity? Sometimes we have to remember to relax a bit and have a little fun. Now I am off to see just how many blankets are available to build my own personal retreat.
