We got to escape from reality for a bit this past weekend.
It's always nice to get away. My husband and I tend to be hermits, and it takes a lot of coaxing to get us out and about. We desperately needed some time away though, so we decided to go up to my mothers' alpaca farm. Nanny and Nana were SO excited to see the munchkin (and us) and we were equally as happy to see them.
When we go up to the farm, it's like the rest of the world is put on hold. There is access to internet, most of the time a phone, and no cable tv. It is wonderful. We are completely cut off from civilization as long as we don't go on facebook. Occasionally you'll receive the random text that took 4 hours to get through, but I just turn my phone off when I get there anyway. It's nice to be incommunicado.
And the views....SO.PRETTY. It's on a mountain in northern New Hampshire, and the drive up (or at least the second half) is absolutely gorgeous. You get to ride through Franconia Notch, which is always a treat - especially on the clearer days. We had perfect weather and I wish we could've spent more time up there. We'll be back up soon. If you all want to check out where I'm talking about, go to www.foggybottomranch.com. It's my moms' farm and they run it like they were born to do this kind of job! The alpacas are super cute, but NO YOU CANNOT RIDE THEM! (This is always the first question asked when I tell people about the farm...lol!)
Anyway, a straight 24 hours of relaxation was much appreciated and I loved the QT our whole family got to spend together. Now it's back to the grind!
When's the next vacation??
Mother and wife by day, psych RN by night. So many different ways to view life. I try to take everything in and be very slow to judge.
