I’d love another cup of coffee right now to help me through writing this post, but I’m pretty sure that grinding the beans will wake my napping boy, so, there’s that. We all fight imaginary battles…
With an impending nation-wide film release, we’ve been traveling A TON. Josh’s job requires him to travel often and while I have my really hard days, I’m slowing learning how to make the best of it. When the opportunities arise for me to travel (as a family or just with the baby) I try to take them. I do much better when I’m busy and travel keeps me on my toes.
MARCO ISLAND, FL
Josh was scheduled to be away on Valentine’s Day and I was a little heartbroken at the thought. I mentioned to my mom that I may fly up to Wisconsin for a visit since his trip was supposed to be extra-long and she said “Too bad, we’ll be in Florida that week, you’ll just have to join us there!”. I did not argue with her! It meant a shorter flight for us and since my family had already rented a home for the week there was plenty of room for us, we booked it to Marco Island for a relaxing week. The best part was that Josh had a break and flew down for Valentines Day. It was a truly magical dinner and we 100% took advantage of the free babysitting by my little sisters!
Our Nashville stay for a few days due to the premiere of “I Can Only Imagine”, but ended up staying a week at the Gaylord Opryland. My mom flew down for a few days to watch Hugo so that I could attend and not have to worry about him. Once the event was over, we were able to explore the city and eat some amazing food! Hugo loved being with his “Sugar”!
Release week happened last week and Josh was off to OKC and Dallas, there was no way Hugo and I were going to be able to keep up with his schedule and were going to stay put in Birmingham. Over the weekend, as we were discussing Easter plans, I got word from my family that both my grandfather and my mimi were having some health complications and things fell quickly into place that we would fly to Wisconsin to support and just be together.
So there’s a little recap of our travels. I’m happy to be home for a bit, I spent yesterday cleaning and catching up on laundry, today I ran a million errands and put a pot roast in the oven. These are the little things that make my homebody heart squeeze with happiness.
