Jacob and I just got home from our five-day vacation to Austin, our state’s lovely capitol. I need to edit the photos (most are total crap since they were taken indoors on cell phones sans flash) but I just wanted to express how grateful I am that we were able to get away for a few days. No, it wasn’t the cruise we had originally aimed for but it was still wonderful. The ‘goal’ of the trip was to relax and do whatever we wanted even if that ended up being nothing at all.
Most of our trip revolved around eating (and drinking, of course) and snuggling. Doesn’t it sound perfect? It kind of was. Jacob and I got to just hang out without worrying about diapers, laundry, money, or anything else that plagues us on a daily basis. I think that he finally let go and took a giant proverbial chill pill and it was glorious. Jacob stresses out about money and his job gives him stomachaches so to see him in a state of relaxation at all is quite a sight to behold. Lucky ol’ me got to relish in his calm for five days. I curled up in the crook of his arm and absorbed the serenity he was exuding.
Unless we were drunk and doing other stuff.
I can sum up our trip with this little haiku:
Free poolside beer flowed
Got tanned from walking SOCO
Fell in love again.
