Currently Obsessing Over.
I have a thing for tradition – especially the kind that requires a little road trip towards a weekend away. Add family & friends to the mix and now you’re destined for some great moments. For me, a quick but relaxing trip to New Hampshire is a big summer highlight. Here’s an instagram from last summer. Now, we were just hitting the road and had yet to experience any true vacation fun – but there were lakeside snuggles and swimming right around the corner. Major kid bliss.
Here’s a few things I do for a super easy weekend away:
Cook Less. If you are only gone for a few days, take the weekend off from extensive planning, shopping and cooking. Instead, pack healthy snacks, to-go meals, or festive outings to keep everyone active and nourished.
Pack light. Don’t stress about packing earrings for every look. Pack the basics – things that are easy to mix & match and can go the distance. Allow yourself a weekend to be fashion free. The goal,: look good without the fuss.
Adventure: Rent a boat, kayak or simply take a mini hike to the other side of the beach. The more I try activities with the kids, the more I discover just how much fun it is to be a mom. Don’t leave the fun stuff for the other parent – kick off your summer heels and get in the game. Oh, and the kids think it’s really cool too.
We’re currently counting down to our weekend away. We’ll be sure to post pics on IG @dennyfrench.
