A Mom's Weekend Away

Being a mom is a crazy thing...  It's the most amazing, most rewarding thing to be in the whole world, but it's also the hardest.  Being a mom and a wife and an entrepreneur and just being me, pulls me in all different directions, and finding the balance is nearly impossible sometimes.  This weekend was just further proof of that.

Me, all last week: Girl's weekend coming up!!!  I am sooooo excited!!!!  Oh, I can't wait to get away, and eat, drink, and sleep all on my own schedule and not have to worry about or tend to anyone else!! 

Me, Saturday morning: I am so nervous to be leaving my family for the weekend.  I feel so guilty....I shouldn't go.  I could cry at any moment. Ok, I am crying.  Should I go?  Maybe I should just stay home and spend some downtime with the fam.  Ok, fine I'll go.

Me, in Sedona with my girlfriends: aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.  This is amazing!  Pour me another.

This morning:  Oh, I can't wait to get home to my family.  I have butterflies, I'm so excited to see them and hug them and hold them.   And I swear they've changed in only 2 days!!  OMGeee, it feels so good to hold my babies.  (more tears)

Summary:  This weekend with my girlfriends was simply amazing.  I relaxed, I explored, I slept A LOT, I overindulged, I reminisced, I laughed until I cried (several times), and maybe even peed (unless you've passed a child through your girl parts, don't judge), and I came back refreshed for my family.

Here are a few of the moments.
