a Charleston getaway











we're just back from our quarterly nights of sleep at the old village post house in old mount pleasant. thanks to a schedule that's a little more free these days, we took monday - wednesday and ventured down to the coast, just the two of us. we chatted in the car, uninterrupted, for hours. we slept and rested. we spent a little time on the beach, soaking in the salty air, while mikey read the return of the native. we treated ourselves to Beauty & the Beast (the late showing) and had appetizers at Mex 1 & small plates at Harold's Cabin. mikey went for a 26 mile run & then we had 90 minute massages (thanks mom for the Christmas gift!). i'd say we squeezed every drop from these few days that we possibly could. 

mike and i truly believe in getting away without our kiddos to just be us for a few nights whenever we can. it's refreshing and restoring on a soul level. it brings fresh perspective and happy hearts. it makes us better friends, a better husband & wife, better parents. 

cheers to the weekend, friends! i hope it's full of all the things you love the most.

  1. you two are such good examples of being partners first, then parents. no doubt your children benefit from your strong & maintained foundation. i truly believe that a happy, healthy marriage -- both for daily life and the example it sets -- is the best gift we can give our babes. thank you for modeling this for me!
