Mama's Little Vacay...

This little mama got a few days away from my everyday life and enjoyed a little vacation up in Utah. I was able to visit family and see one of my best friends get married. I would be lying if I said I didn't miss my family, because I did...a lot...much more than they missed me, most likely. But, I would also be lying if I said it wasn't nice to have a little space and "me" time to think, reflect, and regroup.

I enjoyed some long-overdue, one-on-one time with my amazing siblings, I reconnected with some friends I haven't seen since high school, and I was able to see this amazing woman who has been like a sister to me at the happiest moment of her life so far - the moment when she became a Mrs. and said "I do" to marrying an equally amazing man. Congratulations Mandy...words cannot fully express how happy I am for you!!
All-in-all, it was an absolutely wonderful trip and I am so, so thankful that Doug and the girls granted me some free time away from the family (and along with that, thank you to my wonderful in-laws for coming out from AZ to help take care of the girls while I was gone).
