A Weekend Away

This blog - Pink Tea - was designed to offer a break from life's regular routines in order to refresh, reflect, and rejuvenate.  The truth is, however, that I have not been feeling inspired lately.  In fact, Friday afternoon I was as drained as I could be... physically, mentally, and emotionally.  Between high-stress at work, a sick child, and general craziness, I was ready to crack.

Thankfully, my husband whisked me away for our first weekend get-away without children since... well, since we had children.  I had no idea how badly it was needed.  We scheduled nothing.  We made no plans.  And we completely focused on resting and on reconnecting as a couple.

We went to this adorable B&B in Sandbridge where the proprietor, Petie, focusing on pampering you... jacuzzi tubs in the rooms, hot tub outside, luxurious sheets, and a three-course breakfast completely customized to your own preferences every morning.  (Example:  I love Eggs Benedict, but my husband isn't a fan.  So one morning she made me Eggs Benedict and made him a Southwestern omelet.)

The tranquility, the pampering, the rest... it all helped me realign my priorities and realize that I need to make some changes.  I'll share more on that later.  However, one lesson I will share now... We all need weekends away.  We all need time to rest and recover.  And if you are a parent, I cannot stress enough the value of that time away to just be a couple!

Time away from the children reinvigorates the marriage relationships and it also helps one remember why one loves those little monsters so much. ;)
