When Ethan turned 1, Dave and I went to Ixtapa, Mexico, with his twin brother Doug and his wife Sonja. Just a little time away to reconnect. I loved Mexico -- the laid back lifestyle, the balmy afternoons lying under an umbrella on the beach, the quiet dinners, uninterrupted by sweet, childish chatter. We even did a few *active* things to appease my athletic husband. How he ever convinced me to go para-sailing, I will never know. But I did, and a little body surfing too. Ahhhh, it was the most fabulous vacation.
On July 6th, Dave and I will have been married for 5 years, and we have considered going away together again. We're not really sure for how long or where we'd even like to go, but life has gotten extremely busy around here. I shouldn't really be surprised or anything, since spring is always busy for architectural engineers. But for some reason it always takes me by surprise, and leaves me feeling a little blue. A little pick-me-up is in order, a little something to look forward to together.
Dave asked me to do a little research tonight and start planning a trip, but I am at a loss. To be honest, a few days at the Marriott down the street sounds like a dream come true! But I know that Dave has been looking forward to this, and that will probably not cut it. :) So I thought I'd ask, does anyone have any advice on where to go?
