We just returned from a last-minute trip to West Palm Beach. Tyler's parents were there for their spring break, and Tyler was working in nearby Miami, so we spent a couple days in Florida with them. The warm weather was such a welcome break from Chicago's cold. You know what is really wonderful about even a quick getaway? I truly felt like I was on vacation when during Tye's nap, I had nothing to do. No chores, no laundry, no laptop around to check emails. Between those blissfully peaceful naps, Tye and I had a great time walking around the neighborhood, playing in the sand at the beach, and generally stocking up on precious, naturally-derived vitamin D. Sometimes even a couple days away can refuel the body and the soul, and this trip was just what we needed.
