Getting Real with Shadra Bruce
I am always talking about the next road trip and the importance of family vacations, but escaping alone with your spouse, whether for a simple overnight or a few days, is just as important.
It’s not just good for you and your spouse; it’s important for the health and well-being of the entire family. Getting away together lets you remember the reasons you fell in love in the first place – the love that built your family! And being away gives your kids a chance to appreciate what they might be taking for granted.
Family vacations are so important, creating memories and experiences that bond you. But you may find the mini-vacations that you and your spouse take together are just as fulfilling.
I really believe these little escapes we make keep our love healthy and strong. And they don’t have to be expensive or extravagant. Dave and I have done everything from spend a week together in Montreal to cook dinner at home, call it an early night, and have a romantic “getaway” in our bedroom. The kids play along and don’t disturb us for the night.
When you take time to be a couple and enjoy time with just the two of you, you come back refreshed and ready to be better parents.
