Not only am I exhausted, but I learned something new about my kids last night. If you'd asked me before Cookie came over whether my children could possibly be any louder, I would've said, "No way. They're already the loudest kids on the planet." Turns out, I was wrong. They can get louder. And they did!
So this morning, I grabbed a few minutes of visual oasis time where I could: when they were outside swinging, when they were eating pancakes in the playroom, when they were tracking spilled bubbles through the house (hmm... maybe I should've been watching them then).
Anyway, I had such a nice little oasis -- fantasizing about the places I'd love to go for my 10th anniversary next year (not that any of them are in the budget) -- that I thought I'd share some of the amazing destinations with you. Scroll through, check out the scenery, breathe in and relax.
Do you have any dream destinations that you "escape" to from time to time?
Grace Bay Club, Turks & Caicos
Four Seasons Maui
One of my friends says this is her favorite place on earth. With views like this, I can understand why.
The Tides, Riveria Maya, Mexico
This one may be my favorite, although hubby is extremely reluctant to head to Mexico. Each of the 29 villas has its own private plunge pool and is just steps from miles of white sands beaches.
Banyan Tree Resort, Seychelles
Of course, while I'm dreaming, why not stop by Seychelles? The place I consider the most beautiful in all the world (not that I've been there...). But it's got glittering waters, smooth rocky coasts, and lush peaks. Too bad the Indian Ocean is so hard to get too.
