Sometimes things align, and you get to do crazy things like stay in California for most of the month of May.
Things can be specified as:
--- your job allows you to work from anywhere
--- your husband has over a month until any commitment at home
--- your job also allows your husband to pick up hours while on break so you can both work remotely
--- direct flights available from South Bend to Phoenix for $83. Yes, direct, and yes, eighty-three dollars!
--- you have the most amazing neighbors in the world to take care of your home while you're gone
--- your brother-in-law and sister-in-law have the comfiest couch to crash on that happens to be in Phoenix
--- Costco allows for you to be able to rent a car from Phoenix to San Diego for $20+ (just make sure that you rent the car from the correct airport, unlike yours truly)
--- your husband's break conveniently overlaps with the time when you want to be on the West Coast to be on goddaughter watch
--- May is when all of the jacaranda trees in San Diego royally trumpet with their purple blooms as you drive in
And so because of all of that, I can say greetings from California for one whole month!
