This past weekend Brian and I did something wild and crazy and it was SO.MUCH.FUN. If you follow along on snapchat (purejoyhome) or instagram, you already know this, but we booked a little getaway on Friday morning and left that afternoon at 3:30 , just the two of us. Brian’s mom came into town and was already planning on babysitting because we originally were going to LA/Venice Beach on a business trip but once that trip fell through we were just going to hang at home and enjoy her visit. On Friday morning however we woke up and thought, why not?? When do we have babysitting from both sets of grandparents lined up to do something like this so we got online and booked tickets to Jupiter, Florida.
The whole thing was so fun, probably because it was last minute it felt like we were stealing time. We relaxed at the beach, went out to dinner, drank tropical drinks at the beach, rode bikes, people-watched, sat in silence without a “mom” or “dad” being yelled out and best part was laughing our asses off and making our own fun. We raced each other on the beach and fell over in the sand dying of laughter, we both got the worst sunburns because we’re not used to not having a “nap-time” break during the peek sun hours, we met all sorts of crazy people at the bar one night and did shots with them, we uber’ed everywhere, we slept past 10 one morning…you get the drift. It was so nice to connect and spend real time together, such a rejuvenating time in our relationship, one we’ll never forget.
We’re very lucky to have grandparents like ours who want to spend time with our kids so we could take this little vacation away, it was such a special time and we’ll cherish the memories forever. On the plane ride home we talked about how we definitely want to make sure we take time to have more FUN, like good fun that makes us feel like kids again. What sorts of things do you do with your significant other that are FUN? Simple things we can do locally, or even in the house! Would love some ideas!!
