Ben and I took a much needed hiatus from parenting and spent three days relaxing, playing games, hiking, eating and so much more together up in the northeastern mountains of Arizona. There was snow on the ground, the smell of pine needles everywhere and silence. I am so thankful that I married my best friend, that we have family willing to watch our children so we can get away and that we value our relationship in the midst of parenting. As you know, parenting can get a tad catawampus on you sometimes. Sometimes, a little time a way is just enough to rejuvenate your heart. And, sometimes.....you wish you had just a couple of more days.
