At the end of February, Chris and I went on our very first kid-free vacation to the Dominican Republic. As young parents, it’s so easy to become completely focused on the roles of mom and dad. Parenthood becomes all-consuming, and you forget to prioritize being a married couple as well. And while we’ve been making sure we have a date night once or twice a month since the summer, we haven’t been away as a couple for more than a night since before Isabelle was born. We also haven’t gone on a true, relaxing (aka do nothing, worry about nothing) vacation since Isabelle was born and we were definitely feeling the need for a break.
