Rest can be one of those really hard things to make time for when you work for yourself. The work is literally never done, and there is always someone doing more and doing it better and faster. That’s one of the things that drives us, but it also means we don’t give yourselves the chance to take a break. The funny thing is, once you do, you realize how important rest and a change of pace can be.
This year was no exception. We didn’t have plans for a fun weekend away at the beach, but they fell into place serendipitously after deciding to combine the travel for a few weddings. I say weekend, because of course working on the weekend means that your days are all mixed up. So we spent a long weekend (or a few weekdays) in Rhode Island on the beach together and it was wonderful. I have to admit, it was not entirely vacation since I still worked 4 hours a day, but being able to spend time together as a family and escape to play in the sand and jump through waves took priority. Here is a peek at our mini vacation with a few of the snaps I captured on my phone!
