The hubby, daughter and I are headed “Up North” – in Michigan that is what we say when we go anywhere, well, north – for the rest of the week. This vacation couldn’t come at a better time.
After an extremely difficult two weeks managing an infant with the hubby out of the country followed by what revealed itself to be two stessful weeks with the hubby back (I’ve been nursing a headache since he got back in town. hmm….), we both need a b-r-e-a-k.
It’s our 4-year anniversary this week, so we’re taking time off. Our 7-month-old daughter gets to come with us on this anniverary getaway because I’m nursing – though I informed her it is the only time she will join us on our anniversary getaway. But I’m looking forward to the family time, and I think we’ll all enjoy the change of scenery.
And do you want to know a secret? There’s an amazing cookie shop there, and I’ve saved up some cash to indulge. The best part is that I will eat guilt-free – enjoying and savoring the sugary goodness and giving myself a treat.
We’re packing up our farm-share veggies and fresh organic strawberries to take with us – so we won’t get a break from cooking. But I”m hoping to score a local farmer’s market up there to supplement other veggies for yummy summer goodness in a meal.
Adios for a few days – I’m off to a vacation with my family — cookies and kale and all.
