So scroll through this blog, and you will quickly find that these days are unapologetically revolving around this little guy:

In the midst of providing him with theme weeks, daily adventures, three meals a day, clothing on his back and all that it takes to orchestrate his days, Andrew and I took one night away.

It was just over 24 hours and it was such sweet, quiet time together that I need to pause and note that adventuring with Andrew is one of the greatest gifts of my life.

We headed up the coast to Maine.  We ventured by ferry to Peaks Island and then toured on foot and by golf cart discovering an island with history and interesting architecture.

We paused for our greatest dinner ever (as blogged about here), and stayed in a lovely Bed & Breakfast in Kennebunkport.  We explored and rested.  We played backgammon and ate entire meals without anyone throwing anything.

One day away was so filling and so realigning.  We are a family who believes in adventure and retreat.  What a joy when I get to do both with the love of my life.

Thank you to Mimi and Skip for making it all possible.
