I feel like we try to be mindful about what we commit to, but still, our home life is really busy. With church commitments, Nate's busy work schedule, social engagements, family happenings and the few extracurriculars that we're involved in, it seems our days and nights are nearly always scheduled. It was so, so good to get away. It was good to wake up together, cook breakfast together, play games, watch movies, snuggle, let our days evolve just how we wanted them to.
It was good to ignore our phones and leave the laptops at home.
Made me realize that even if it's just a staycation, we need to be more committed to carving out time to recreate as a family.
