Maybe another mom would have done things differently.
It seems like many of us have had a bad autumn. In our house, someone has been sick since early September. For the past week, we’ve missed school, activities, and anything that was on my own to-do list. I’ve been mom nonstop.
Maybe I shouldn’t complain – I work from home and the passion and enthusiasm I feel for my travel writing career is a gift, I know. Let’s just say I don’t miss my basement office and I never dread sitting down to my computer to write. I don’t have that “ugh” Sunday evening feeling anymore.
So when I had the wonderful opportunity to visit Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort in Leavenworth, Washington, what did I do? I went. By. My. Self. Uh huh. In that beautiful outdoor setting, with the fresh mountain air and lovely meandering grounds, the rustic luxe rooms and delicious Northwest cuisine. I did it all. Alone.
Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort is an amazing place for families and right up my street when it comes to the kind of getaway I’d choose with my twins. But I just needed a break, you know?
So I went, played around with my camera, wandered, and had some wine and great meals with the most amazing fellow mom and host Lori Vandenbrink. Did I miss my family? A little. But I wouldn’t do it differently, and now I just know that my kids might come the next time. Unless I need a break again.
With many thanks to Sleeping Lady Mountain resort for hosting my accommodation and meals. All opinions are my own. Photo of Lori Vandenbrink courtesy of Sleeping Lady.
