weekend review {a much needed getaway}

Life has been so crazy and busy lately... 100 hour work weeks, going out of town separately, a little baby who needs us for everything, etc. All good things (well, except for the long hours at work. But a job is a good thing.) but they have been so demanding these past few weeks that Eric and I were being distanced from each other and becoming increasingly disconnected. This weekend has been just what we needed to reconnect!

We escaped to northern Utah and we have been having the best time! My in laws even met up with us to watch Mia so that we could go have some fun.... but more on that later! We spent our Saturday afternoon at Strawberry Days. Good company, happy baby, and the most amazing strawberries n cream ever makes for a good time :) Eric and I even soaked in a hot tub while Mia was off on the side playing in her car seat! How we were blessed with a perfect baby, I'll never know! But we are grateful :) And I'm even more grateful for the time that Eric and I have been able to share together this weekend! I really can't explain how needed this was! I can't wait to share what else we've been up to!
