I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed your Father's Day!
Nick and I had a night away Saturday night, to celebrate his 30th birthday and Father's Day. And to get a night away, just the two of us. We rarely ever take the time for just me and him, so while it was short and sweet, it was very much needed and worth it.
So good news...we both turned our phones on silent and turned off the outside world. Bad news is we took zero pictures of our time away. Oops.
I think we often forget to do that. Actually put our phones down and away and enjoy being in the moment. We have to memorialize everything. Make sure we aren't missing anything so we can post it on social media. And yes, I'm guilty of it too.
I love having the memories. The pictures to look back on. But I've found I often miss things because my face is behind my phone, taking pictures. Then getting distracted because I got some sort of notification.
I loved having the time away with my husband this weekend. Just him and I, enjoying time away without any kids or fur babies or work or phones or anything distracting us.
We enjoyed a nice dinner out, then a couples massage. It was so peaceful and serene in the spa...we enjoyed some time alone while we were waiting in this amazing room. It was quiet and the chairs were so comfortable. I could've fallen asleep in the one I was in. But we played footsies instead :-)
This was our second couples massage together. It was nice to enjoy quality time together, to know we were treating ourselves, helping us to recover and move into our week refreshed.
I'd like to say we did something exciting afterwards, but nope. We showered and watched a movie laying in bed. We relaxed! No interruptions. No taking the dog out. No putting the baby to bed. Just him and I.
He and I are always on the go. It's non-stop from the moment we get up to the moment we go to bed. We work, study, build our businesses, raise a beautiful son, take care of our fur baby, work out, cook, clean up, try to relax. Day in and day out. And now we added house hunting into the mix!
We're living our best life together. And every now and again, it's nice to get away to relax, refresh, and renew. I think it's vital to do that.
So make the time. Set time aside for you. For you and your significant other. Get away from the every day grind. And enjoy it!
I hope you all have a beautiful week! And plan a little getaway. Plan something to look forward to!
With love and wellness,
