This year, I decided that the holidays would be spent very differently than what I am traditionally used to. For the Thanksgiving holiday, I spent time relaxing poolside in Orlando with family. I was not interested in slaving in the kitchen and then begging my kiddos to help clean up afterward. So, it worked out perfectly that I was able to join my extended family on a wonderful mini-vacation.

Guilt Free Mommy Getaway: My Trip to the Bahamas

“And the bottom line is that I need and deserve every ounce of pleasure on these getaways.”

The wind was a bit gusty

The past few months have been a perfect balance of what I want my life to be be like- lots of work and play. I work hard for my kiddos so that they have what they need so I have had no sentiment of guilt accompany me on the past couple of trips I’ve had.

Enjoying the kid free area of the ship

It is so critical for busy moms to take time to getaway from daily responsibilities. I am so grateful that I have gotten to a place in my life in which I can take these types of trips. Years ago, as a young mom, I was not…
