I spent the last 2 weeks on a (mostly) amazing family vacation. Brian and I traveled to my in-laws in North Carolina, dropped off our kiddo, then spent 3 nights in Asheville exploring and eating. Following our return to our child, we spent a full week at the beach with nearly all of Brian’s family. In addition to her awesome grandparents, my daughter had an amazing time with her aunts and uncles and cousins and other extended family members.
Now, we’re back at home. It’s wonderful to be back in my own bed and not sharing a 2 room space with a toddler. I’m also looking forward to eating vegetables on a regular basis, which definitely didn’t happen over the past couple weeks.
It also means I don’t get to wake up to this view every day, which is unfortunate.
