Cruising

After some great deal of thought, Tyler & I have decided to take a cruise. I am super excited about this getaway. I feel guilty, though. (I always feel guilty) People have helped us and are still helping us fund our adoption - and we are SO grateful! $50,000 is a LOT of money to come up with. Tyler & I are using some of our own money to go away for the weekend. Here are some reasons why we are going:

- We live in FL so we don't have to pay to get here to get on the cruise.
- We are moving next summer and most likely won't be back in FL for the rest of Tyler's Air Force career.
- We have someone to watch our kids for us. (Thanks, Sarah!)
- We found a really great deal online!
- The doctor said that my cortisol levels are high and the best way to lower them is to de-stress.
- Once we adopt Calvin & Silas we won't be able to get away just the two of us for some time.
- Tyler just marked 6 years in the Air Force!

I love it! that's what we're doing next month! We're in New Orleans and leaving from here, and I have family to watch the kids, and it will be the first time I have ever been on a vacation that long with just my sweetie. We are excited. I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing time.

Please enjoy it and leave all your cares and worries behind! Refresh and recharge your marriage before you bring your boys home. Don't feel guilty!

That was a great idea. I am really glad you were able to do that with Tyler.
