I just spent 5 whole days doing basically whatever I wanted and it was amazing. I took a break from work, cooking, cleaning… and even blogging! (gasp!!) It was my son’s birthday and we decided to have a little staycation at a motel on the beach.
I took off Wednesday, Thursday, & Friday from work, which is just long enough to feel like a got a break… but short enough that I’m still in the loop and don’t have to take a whole afternoon to catch up.
My husband went to the Keys for a few days at the beginning of the week for lobster mini-season. They caught 90 lobsters! Pretty awesome.
Then it was off to the beach to spend the rest of the weekend with friends and family. A bunch of us got rooms at this little motel that is right on the beach. It’s sort of become a family hangout at least a few times a year! I took some pictures the first day and night, only on my phone though… I was so bummed I forgot our good camera! After that… I don’t think I even took my phone out of the room for the rest of the weekend.

I ate and drank whatever I wanted. We woke up to watch the sunrise and spent hours floating in the ocean. It wasn’t a long trip, or a far one (we were only about 30 minutes away from our house!) but the memories we made are priceless and it reminded me how THANKFUL and GRATEFUL I am to have family and close friends that live right around the corner. A big THANK YOU to everyone who helped make Hudson’s 6th Birthday so special! Now… back to reality!
