Dear Baby –
May was a month of many happenings! What a great turnaround from our slightly depressing April, if I do say so myself!
May is always filled with a lot of celebrations. This year it was your dad’s mother’s 70th birthday, as well as your dad’s birthday! If that wasn’t enough, we celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary. It’s hard to believe that your father and I have been married for that many years! 8 years of marriage also means that later on this year we will be marking 10 years of being together since we met at the beach for the first time!
To celebrate our 8th anniversary, we took a mini trip to Mexico at the end of the month. Throughout the month of May, I spent time preparing for the mini vacation. It was definitely a good thing, because it kept my mind busy and gave me something to look forward to. The weeks leading up to our trip I don’t think I thought about our adoption status quite as much as usual. Honestly, the planning of the trip (and taking the trip!) made me realize that we need to do it more regularly.
So, we are victims of habit, and we returned to the same resort in Mexico that we visited last time: Excellence Playa Mujeres. We thought about trying out a new location, but we had such a great experience the previous time that it seemed like the right choice. We already knew where everything was located, what kinds of items to pack, and we knew more about what we wanted to do/didn’t want to do when we were there. It was nice! I don’t know that we will go back for a third time right away. Next time we take a trip we might explore a new resort to switch it up! But boy oh boy, was it enjoyable to get away for a few days. Now I’m trying to figure out when it would be acceptable to plan another trip. In an ideal world, we would take a short trip every 6 months. A couple of long weekends to get away sounds really nice to me! We will see. I am hoping we don’t get to November and get the itch to take another trip. I’m really hoping we will have our hands full with YOU at that time! But – we will see…
Until next time,
