In so many ways, right? I feel like that is such a generic statement to make. Of course vacations are special! But maybe I should back-up a bit and give this a little context for you… 🙂
We are a simple family. Really. We live a relatively simple life. We’ve never really felt the need for extravagance, especially after the little monkey was born. She was all the sparkle we needed in our lives. Simple for us is really great. That also means we don’t jet off to fancy places very often, but when we do take a few days to relax and enjoy our family, it’s special. Very special. I really don’t think there is anything quite like being able to get away from your reality for a few days and just relax and really enjoy the people you love the most. It always recharges my soul and pushes me forward in life. I love vacation!
Back in early November we took a little mini vacation to the Lake Tahoe area. It was just me, the hubby, the sparkle and one of our furry babies, Nelli.
It was just what the doctor ordered! Lake Tahoe might just be one of the most gorgeous places on earth and only a short drive from our home, score! We had a fabulous room right on the lake, did about a mile hike down into Emerald Bay and had delicious food on the pier topped off with yummy cocktails at sunset. It was really a magical and perfect weekend. The little monkey loved our hike and feeding the ducks and playing in the sand. It’s such a joy to experience the world through a child’s eyes. It’s like a brand new fresh perspective on life. So rewarding!!
But I guess this is the part where I really explain what I mean when I say “vacations are special” to us. It’s probably because this tends to happen on vacation:
So, there you have it. Vacations are VERY special to us and we have an excellent track record of bringing back the sweetest souvenirs to remind us of what a magical time we had!
And, thus, our journey through this crazy thing called pregnancy begins again!! Hang on everyone, it’s about to get all sorts of crazy up in here…And I cannot wait! 😀
Please keep your fingers and toes crossed for us as it is still very early and, as I’ve come to realize, my anxieties left from our sweet first angel baby still haunt me, daily.
Next post will be an update about where I am in the pregnancy and about how I told the daddy and the grandparents…of course I wanted to do something a little special ♥
And to my dear, sweet baby growing inside; I already love you so much and didn’t realize there was any space left in my heart to love this fiercely again. Please hang in there!! We are in this together little one. And there is an amazing daddy and a big sister waiting to meet you and love you just as much as me!
