Decompressing in Scottsdale

Last month, hubby had to visit Scottsdale for work and I decided to tag along without the kids. It was a quick 2 day trip but exactly the break that I needed!

I am no stranger to hard work. I spent nearly a decade working in finance and law jobs with schedules that were sometimes brutal. When I was pregnant with my first, everyone warned me how hard it is to be a mom but I felt abundantly confident and capable going in. No sweat, I thought, I got this.

What I didn’t know back then is that being a mom is a nonstop job. You can never clock out! Especially with two kids (or more), the breaks are few and far between. Someone always needs something at any hour of the day (how about that 4AM nosebleed?).

Even the best moms need to take breaks. In fact, I think the best moms are absolutely taking breaks! In Scottsdale, I indulged in a 2 hour brunch buffet followed by early happy hour followed by a dip in the jacuzzi with a glass of wine in one hand and my kindle in the other. All by myself! It was the best kind of vacation for an overworked mom.

And at the end of the trip, I missed my kids so much that I rushed back home to smother them with kisses.
