Our week in Cancun was divine. Just divine. In planning for the trip, I had no idea what to expect. (This was the first time that we’d left either of the kids for more than a night). For the first day I had a hard time adjusting to vacation mode. I kept feeling like we had forgotten the kids or I should check on what they were doing. By day two I started seeing the many perks of having Ryan all to myself all week. We almost felt like the honeymooners we were in Mexico eight years ago.
Many things have changed since starting our family three and a half years ago. Ryan said this was the best week we’ve shared together ever. I agree. Because the crazy life schedule of raising two little ones (almost three), really makes us appreciate the time to just be together. Turns out we still like each other a lot! I want to do a better job of “being” together at home this year. Giving our relationship time. Ryan summed it up well by saying as parents you often get the watered down version of your spouse. You get them, but there are so many other things that take your time and energy that you don’t get the full dose. Its like drinking a watered down Coke after you’ve had one full strength. Question is- how to be less watered down?
Today we’re home trying to step back into the real world. I’ve got bags to unpack and little ones excited about playing with new toys from Grandpa & Nana.
Thankful for our getaway.
