I said to my friends and family afterward, “Everyone should have a night like this before dying.” At intermission in the Crush Room, I thought I might burst with happiness. I’d gotten to do something I’d dreamed about ever since I was little, and I’d never expected it to actually happen. More than that, I was only lucky enough to do it because of a series of coincidences that gave me a night to remember for the rest of my life.
Talking about the night with my friend made me appreciate (once more) the glory of realizing that dream. I’ve had many dreams come true (I am blessed in many ways), but there’s something special about a lifelong dream.
For many of my characters, taking a vacation is an important way to get through a difficult period, celebrate success, or affirm commitment to one another. Kat and Natalie (from The Way Home, Coming to Terms, and Lighting the Way) use a dream-come-true trip to a theme park to find connection during a rocky part of their relationship.
What about you? What has been your most memorable vacation?
