With our family having a crazy past couple of months, a get away for Jeremy and I couldn't have come at a better time. Jeremy had a business trip already scheduled for Miami, and we were blessed to find flights and hotels to make it possible for me to meet him out there.
I will admit, I was a nervous wreck getting out the door... Especially since I didn't make my final decision to actually step on the plane until that very morning, due to making sure the kids were truly healthy again. My mom and sister ushered me to the airport near tears, fighting back feelings of worry and guilt about leaving the kids after them just being sick. That's when you know you REALLY need a vacation!
Our trip was amazing! It was the first time in a long, long time that Jeremy and I both felt like we genuinely got to decompress and connect. We adore our kids, but wow, they are exhausting and just need us so much! Jeremy and I got to walk on the beach, go running a few times - together, lay by the pool, read and write, experience wonderful meals, have uninterrupted conversations, meet up with our friends Mike and Stephanie... We even got to take a BMW 550 for a whirl for a morning (thanks to our hotel) and explored South Beach! We felt like kids and newlyweds, all at the same time! I adore spending time with my husband and am so thankful we are best friends... It keeps life over the top fun and beautiful!
What a blessing to be able to take a step back and reflect and dream a little together! It felt very timely, to refresh, as we hope this coming year will lend to some changes for us. We are overwhelmingly thankful for Mimi, Baba, Auntie Kara, Uncle Brent & Auntie Kae for truly giving it a giant team effort to make this possible for us. We know that our kiddos are more than loved and well taken care of in our absence. Thank you!
