Me, my husband and 15 friends vacationed in St. George Island, Florida, for a week. Here is what I learned:
Making time for life-long best friends is a non-negotiable
I like being called Aunt Dawn
Kids really do amazing things. Give 6 kids an ipad with imovie and they’ll rock your world
I like to be a little tan. Me and my BFF always say “tan flab looks better than white flab”. It’s true (in my case)!!! I personally tested the theory
Raw Oysters, Grouper and Gulf Shrimp are the new Holy Trinity
Dance parties and foosball championships are fun
Sleeping in until 11am everyday has its upside (a big one).
Read the whole post over at Dawn.H.Burke (an FOT contributor blog).

Her HR/recruiting/leadership career has spanned the last 20 years, with past gigs including a foundational role as VP of People for Birmingham, AL’s award-winning technology company, Daxko (And yes, Kris Dunn and Dawn are making Bham the HR capital of the world! Who knew?). You can also check her out at DawnHBurke.com and a variety of other interesting places. Google her, it’ll keep you posted on what she is up to.
Most importantly: She is addicted to TV, knows most of the lyrics to Hamilton and West Side Story, loves to cry at movies (check out Cinema Paradiso for a cry fest!), thinks wine, a wheel of Brie and Milk Duds make a well-balanced dinner, and sings in her car daily. Her husband and cat are the Yin to her Yang.
