We took a break

mactier

Last weekend was a long weekend. We could have spent the extra time meeting with all of the people we need to coordinate to make our day happen… Instead, we chose to get away.

I didn’t take anything wedding related with me.

I barely even spoke about the wedding!

We had a few drinks.

We had a lovely meal.

We spent two hours in stop-and-go traffic talking about anything under the sun.

We went on an adventure.

We rested.

All in all, we reconnected.

 It’s so easy to get caught up in the day by day (everyone knows this by now), so it was nice to have the opportunity to disconnect from the world. That’s what we did. We were in a place with no cell phone reception. It was amazing.

When planning a large event like a wedding or a move (Jamie and I are tackling both right now) it is also easy to create a rift between two people. Getting caught up in the nitty-gritty could cause you more stress than you ever imagined. I was able to look at Jamie, my best friend, in a light that isn’t always visible when concentrating on getting by day-to-day.  It was refreshing!

I encourage anyone, at any time in their marriage or relationship to partake in a break… but not the kind where you part from one another J

  1. I’m so happy to read that you enjoyed it and felt it was a little “getaway from the everday.”
    I agree….a little time to reconnect and focus on the reason why you’re getting married and the reason you’re together makes you stop, appreciate and reflect. Glad it was a rewarding and uplifting experience.
