I'm blessed to have a fantastic husband. Each year that I don't have a nursing baby, I go to the beach with a few girlfriends. I go the weekend before Mother's Day, which usually ends up being the weekend after my birthday. Lincoln isn't expected to do anything else for Mother's Day (as if this isn't enough!). He watches the kiddos and I sit on a beach with no responsibilities. The toughest thing about the weekend usually is deciding where to go for dinner. Seriously- every time I've done this we have at least one night where we drive up and down the Grand Strand trying to decide where to park our tushes and eat some grub. So if that's the hardest thing I had to do for 5 days, that's not too shabby.
So just as in years past, I had a fabulous time laying on the beach soaking up the sun, something I didn't see much of for the past 6 months, reading, going for walks, shopping, collecting seashells, soaking in the hot tub, and staying up til all hours of the night being ridiculously silly.
I am so thankful to have my supportive husband, well-adjusted children, and such great friends that really know how to cut loose and have a good time.
Maybe sometime I will expand on this a bit when I'm recovered from the late nights and the sinus headache I'm suffering from right now.
Thanks ladies! I'll be watching for photos from you!
