Regardless of if you're a new mom or if you've been one for quite some time now, you deserve a break. You deserve to take some well-earned time for yourself, to leave your hectic schedule behind for a few days, and indulge in the getaway that you didn’t realize you are in desperate need of, as often as you can.
There are numerous getaway ideas for you to escape on, from body and mind therapy to partying and even romantic getaways. Whether you bring your other half along with you is completely up to you!
If the kids, your partner and the general stresses of life have made you feel like you are in need of real rest, then book yourself onto a body and mind therapy weekend. Such therapy, like that provided by Heaven and Earth Massage, takes a variety of holistic approaches to calm your mind fully, relax your muscles, and help you reset. You’llbe able to relax in a sanctuary where your mind will be restored to a new state of wellbeing. You’ll be able to indulge in tailored massagesthat would restore your body and boost your energy, and you’ll be able to spend time in an area that will leave you feeling rejuvenated and refreshed. If it sounds like heaven on earth to you, then go and do it. After all, you most certainly deserve it!
Go out and party
When was the last time you truly let your hair down? Your hen party? Your days in college? If it’s just been far too long since you met up with all your old friends and partied like you used to, it’s time to spend a weekend doing it. Regardless of its a full-on trip to Vegas or just a night or two spent in your local town, paint the town red, and you'll be sure to have the break from your life that you need. So, get those cocktails ordered, get reminiscing with your friends, and havethat getaway that you need.
On the other hand, however, you don’t have to leave your partner behind to have the perfect getaway. You could both head out on a romantic weekend, leaving the kids behind with a trustworthy babysitter. You could head to any number of places; perhaps places that you visited when you first got together, or even a place you've never been before. Spending a weekend with your other half in aromantic setting will give you the chance to truly connect with them once again, and maybe even reconnect with them.
Sometimes, escaping life is just what needs to be done. Whether it’s escaping crying children and the mess that they make, or work commitments and the stresses that they bring, escaping is good and it is healthy, and don't ever feel bad about doing it.
If you want to continue to be the very best mom you can be, you need to have some time for yourself, and you need to remember who you are. A getaway is the perfect way to remind you.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
