I love my two munchkins… and even the chaos of life with two kids.
Leaving the kids seemed easy at first. But it’s not easy leaving them for a night… two nights… or a week. A part of my heart aches for them when I say good bye.
Motherhood can be tiring and overwhelming and the need for rejuvenation is real. For me… rejuvenating happens through self-adventure.
I would never want to change my life. I love my two girls with my whole being, and to me, there is nothing more rewarding than being a mother. But… My soul craves adventure… the kind of adventure that is physically exhausting, allows for self reflection, and encompasses socialization with great people.
My soul needed lifting and the ocean was calling for me. The water, the waves, the sand, and the air.
Everything was perfect.
The trip fulfilled me with life and rejuvenated me so that I could return home with full strength to embrace motherhood wholeheartedly.
