Every year, in the middle of any highly busy season we have (usually spring and fall), we make a point to plan a little family getaway. Usually it's only a few days, but enough to give us all a break in the middle of the craziness. Because with as much as we're gone, it's wonderful for our kids too!
So this past week, we headed up to Flagstaff! We rented an incredible cabin and spent 3 nights and 4 days there. We were super stoked that Mike + Jina Olbinski were able to come up with us with THEIR three kids to hang too. AND, we snuck in our annual family photo shoots for one another while we were at it.
I should have taken way more photos, but I just didn't. It was just a great time spent with family, cold weather, good food, and awesome friends. And while we DID bring our laptops and a couple hard drives (we are business owners after all), I'm pleased to say that we actually didn't work that much. I basically kept up with emails because if I don't, it can get pretty gnarly. But otherwise, we spent time outside or having good conversation while all of our kids played.
I would encourage you! If you're a business owner of any kind or even just work crazy hours, make time to get away in the middle of it all. It gives us something to look forward to during the busy-ness and it gives us reprieve to be at our best for the last half of the season. Even if it's just one night away, make sure to take time for you.
Everyone will benefit from it!
