my birthday weekend in miami

miami-with-a-toddler-by-myseastory-1a couple of weeks ago, we flew to miami for a weekend with my mum. i was so looking forward to it. but to be honest, it was harder than i expected. julia was very clingy, and i felt like i didn’t have a break – it was way harder to be away from our routine at home. but she was not herself and something was definitely bothering her, either it was because we were not in our environment, or because we were a family of 4 instead of 3 or because she had no idea if we were coming back to her home.

back on island

Miami | myseastoryhey friends, we just came back from a short weekend in miami. we got our fix of shopping, people watching and a few nice food spots too, and only an hour away from provo. will be sharing pics later on this week.

in the mean time, we are getting ready for christmas. spending christmas away from home and without our family will be, let’s say, a whole new experience. but the fact that we don’t have to face the cold, the traffic and all the shopping stress, i confess, is kind of nice.

how about you, is it important to spend the holiday season with your family, or are you used to being away?

hope you all have a fabulous week before christmas, hopefully with a little bit of sun too!
