I hope everyone had a great weekend and Mother’s Day to all who celebrate. My weekend was great and I wanted to share it with you all. Saturday I spent some time alone and tried to catch up on some much needed sleep. Then I went to my dad’s house around 4 or so and spent the remainder of the evening with him and the rest of my family which was pretty nice and relaxing.
On Sunday my boyfriend and I planned an escape and it was absolutely perfect. We went to the aquarium in Virginia Beach, which is about 2 hours away from home. I don’t remember ever going to an aquarium as a child so I was pretty excited to see everything that it had to offer. We walked around and looked at all of the exibits and at the end of it we saw a sign for nature trails. It was a very nice day outside so we went to enjoy the fresh air and we were pleasantly surprised at the view and the huge obstacle course that was in front of us. People couse climb the trees, climb nets, slide aross from one end to the other, and so much more! We also found that there was another side of the aquarium that we could adventure, so at this point we feel like we’ve hit the jackpot. After the aquarium we got something to eat and then layed on the beach for about 30 minutes. It was very relaxing to just sit and watch the waves come in and see the joy on everyone’s faces.
It was the perfect getaway to enjoy new scenery and try new things. It helps break up the monotiny of work every day but it still doesn’t make going into work on Monday morning any easier… lol
It’s just so important to take the time to get away from your every day routine and enjoy life, even if it’s only for 2 hours or so. Just so that you can recharge and keep going through life.
I hope everyone has a great start to the week!
Until the next blog,
