Girlfriend Getaway

My friend, Jenny, received from her husband a trip to the beach for her birthday/Christmas present. And I was the blessed girl that got to go along! Thank you Greg and Jenny!

We spent our time....deciding what to do with all our time:) Ha! I guess that comes with being in shock that we actually had NO RESPONSIBILITIES. No family to cook, clean, pickup for. No children to dress, feed, read to, and play with. No dishes, laundry, vacuuming, dusting, multitasking. Sound heavenly? It was. We just couldn't figure out what to do with ourselves! We wanted to do it all! We wanted to see and do everything we could. We wanted to relax and read a book. We wanted to watch a girly movie. We wanted to walk on the beach. We wanted to take silly pictures.

We did end up doing some of those fun things, but mostly I just remember being able to talk. A lot. Without interruptions. About life, kids, being wives, parenting, God, friendships, hurts, goals...and the list could go on. It was good. Real good. And I know it was just what I needed to recharge and come back a better Mama. Let's do it again someday, OK?

...and, of course, a big huge "Thank you!" to our hubbies and my mom for being "mama" in our absence.
