If you’re keeping track, I am very into 2-night mini-breaks.
Not knocking longer vacations — those are great too — but I love having a little respite and break to look forward to.
May 2021 – anniversary trip w Josh to Captiva
September 2021 – life planning trip w Josh to Vero Beach
March 2022 – podcast retreat with Laura to Vero (same resort!)
May 2022 – anniversary #16 in Islamorada!
We didn’t do anything for spring break (or winter break) but I can’t exactly complain looking at the above. Looking back one year, in addition to the above there was a family Keys trip, a Disney trip, a NC family visit, and an Amelia Island trip in there too. Plus, Josh took C snowboarding. Hmmm, apparently we mostly travel in FL. What can I say — not paying for plane tickets is great, and this state has so many lovely options. Also cold weather is overrated.
Logistics: Annabel spent a night with Bebe & Poppy (Josh’s parents) which made this one particularly special. Our nanny took the other 2 to her house. I took 2 days off from work (and on Thursday used the morning for a lot of podcast recording too!)
ANNIVERSARY #16. That went by FAST . . . very fast.
Our most memorable celebration? Probably 2016 at The French Laundry. I want to do this again in 2026.
Our most disappointing? May 2020, of course! We had grand plans to celebrate my 40th bday + our anniversary Inn at Little Washington. Maybe for my 50th . . .
(Also, we started dating 20 years ago this Labor Day. We will have to celebrate that milestone as well!).
Very happy there are 2 more days left this weekend to be with the kids – best of both worlds 🙂
