Had a great time on vacation last week! Derek and I made a commitment to ourselves to get away for some “solo time” every 90 days or so. Our strategy is to go away for 3 or 4 days during the workweek while the kids are in their school routines and well taken care of. That way, he and I can have some “alone time” in a beautiful location, rejuvenate, reconnect and just enjoy being together (with three little kids climbing all over us most every day, I think it’s important to not lose focus on our relationship, you know?)
We stayed in a stunning suite at the beautiful Mandorin Oriental at Elbow Beach, an intimate luxury resort on acres of landscaped gardens, with a mile-long private pink sand beach with turquoise blue water. Gorgeous. It was truly magical, and somehow, it felt like we were there for a lot longer than 4 days!
I’d recommend taking some time away for yourself too. (We all need it.)
