In case you didn’t know, the theme of our podcast this season is “Avoiding Burnout,” and recently we did an episode on getting away from the homestead. We really needed this vacation. However, here is what we didn’t share on the podcast. This was the first time that we had been away from our kids in their lives. Yep, 5 years since we have been on a vacation with just the two of us. It was wonderful! We realized the need to reconnect as a couple. For my husband and I, we take our marriage vows VERY seriously. Divorce is not an option. This is by our choice and based on how we read Scripture. I think as new parents, we just don’t want to miss out on any part of their developing lives. Every moment seems to be a new journey, and missing out on one piece feels like we would be missing out on so much more than words can ever express.
