We had a grand time in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina for the week. Adrian and I spent some much needed time alone together and I spent some much needed time alone while he was in meetings. I got my hair done, did a little shopping and picked up a few things for Halloween and Christmas and kids birthdays next April and May. We had a really nice room at the Grand Ocean Marriott Timeshare Hotel. I was able to work out and shower without coordinating around naps, etc. We walked and rode bikes on the beach, had some nice dinners out, and completely relaxed. We saw dolphins, alligators, beautiful sunsets, and enjoyed some cool weather.
Since we’ve never done this before, I didn’t know how great it can be to get away. But now that I know, my unsolicited advice is this, if you can do it, plan a small trip away without kids every so often. It can do wonders for your spirit. You’ll realize that there are things you would like to think about that you haven’t had time to think about, with all the thoughts of diapers, carpools, homework, meals, cleaning, laundry, etc. taking up all the space in your brain.
