There is no better vacation than one spent with my hubby and baby girl. Having said that, I recently took a jaunt down to Florida for a reunion with my girlfriends.

But, instead of dreaming about a suntan, crystal blue water and daiquiris on the beach, I craved snoozing in a dark room and cuddling up with a good book.

In the end, I stayed up late with my friends, didn't indulge in too much slumber and barely turned a page of my book.

I'm still longing for a vacation.
