Ever since we first got married, Eric and I have dreamed of vising Boston... and we finally went last week! It feels so good to cross more off my 27 before 27 list, but it feels even better getting that time with Eric to reconnect!
It is so easy to get lost in giving 100% to Mia. She's been an angel baby since day one and brings us so much happiness! She is so happy, so loving, instantly forgives us for our faults, and is easy to please! Like I said, it's easy to put our everything into her because Eric and I aren't always so happy and loving, and we certainly aren't as quick to forgive as Mia is. She is the best example of how we want to be... hopefully we will achieve those goals someday!
While it's obvious that we are completely obsessed with Mia, I never want to forget how obsessed I was with Eric and our marriage before she came along! It's taken some time to adjust to the major changes a baby brings to a relationship, but our marriage is, and always will be, #1 on our list. I hope that we can escape together once a year because we had the best time! It was the perfect reminder that we are good together, we have so much fun and our relationship is more than just our baby (if that makes sense?). The night before we left for Boston Eric told me he felt like we were going on a second honeymoon :) My heart almost burst right then! It felt amazing knowing that Eric was that excited to spend time with just me (okay, and the Red Sox....)! I was worried that I would feel guilty going without Mia, or that I wouldn't enjoy myself without her, but it was just the opposite! We were doing ourselves and Mia a favor by taking a time out, and we feel more rejuvenated than ever!
We've also never felt more excited to come home from a vacation, ha ha! It was the best reunion when we got home to Mia. My favorite part? She won't stop saying "mama"... before our trip Mia rarely said it and pretty much only when prompted. She missed me!! :) (But don't worry, Mia had the best time while we were gone and was totally spoiled!!) It feels so good to be home with my loves and I can't wait to relive our Boston vacation when sharing it on the blog!!
Not the most flattering picture but I still love it! I couldn't resist a family selfie when we got home :)
