We're leaving...on a jet plane. ;)

If you are reading this we are already in the air headed to our vacation destination! This is an adult only trip and we are SUPER excited about it. With the all the excitement though comes the little "mommy nerves" as well. We left the kids behind with my parent's where they will be more than well taken care of but it still was a little tough for Mama and Daddy to say our goodbyes. I mean who wouldn't want to spend 5 days with your BFF's and Hubby laying here!?!?!?:

I know I have talked about the how important it is for us to be an example of a Godly marriage to our children and that's what I kept telling myself as we dropped the kids off. I want them to grow up knowing- WITHOUT A DOUBT- their parent's love each other and LOVE spending time together, more than just an occasional dinner and movie date. I pray Wyatt finds a wife who wants to spend 1on1 time with him and I pray the same for Sloane and her future husband. (Yes, I pray these things for our children already.) 

Growing up my parent's went on trips together and I never once questioned their love for me. It was actually a comfort...and even more it was a fun time with family! Looking back spending time with the family/friends who watched us while my parent's were gone are some of my favorite childhood memories! Thanks Mom and Dad for being such a Godly role model for me!!!

We are spending 5 days with our dear friends...

I pray I come back refreshed and renewed. I pray this time with Mark is amazing...
I know it will be SO GOOD FOR MY SOUL! 


  1. That sounds like so much fun. Have a great vacation!


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
