Getting Away

This weekend we rented a dock house by the river and spent time as a family basking in the sun, eating good food, and sleeping in. Lately I've been feeling a bit overwhelmed/bored with the routine of everyday life, so getting away helped clear my mind and focus on the things that have unintentionally been buried under months of dirty diapers and no sleep. This weekend I realized that I need to:

a) Make more time for G. Focusing on a new baby is so easy because they demand so much of your attention and time. I feel like our relationship has been put on the back burner and that really is unfair for the two of us.

b) Spend less time stressing out about the smallest things. Time is escaping me and my baby is growing up so. fast.

c) Get out in the sun more. Internet less (gasp!)

d) Stop complaining about where we live. It's seriously so gorgeous here.

Henry slept better in our tiny dock house than he does at home. What's that? A sign that we need to go on more family vacations?? Okay!!
