We went to Florida last week! And it was wonderful! And maybe I'm still on a vacation high!
Eric and I left Piglet with his parents and my parents (they each had him for a couple of days) and just had time to ourselves to relax and enjoy the beach. It wasn't my first time leaving him (remember how I visited Eric in NYC?) but of course I was still sad when we left.
BUT. Spending time together without your child is SO valuable. It was so nice to just focus on each other (and sleep in!). We came home so refreshed and relaxed.
The beach wasn't too crowded while we were there so we were able to carve out our own little area. We both read novels and got sunburns despite slathering ourselves in lots and lots of sunscreen.
