the baby moon and why you need to take one

a couple weeks ago sonny and i took off for the west coast of florida for a couple days for our baby moon. we stayed at the tradewinds resort and love every minute of it!

here's the thing.
anyone pregnant or about to get pregnant or whenever you do get pregnant, you need to take a baby moon.
make it mandatory.
save your pennies.
or heck, just go stay at a local hotel.
it's that important. i think.

here are 5 reasons why i think a baby moon needs to be on your list of things to do before baby.

#1. it's however many days you choose, when you don't think about anything baby related that has stressed you out for the past however many months. for us, it was four days to focus on nothing but each other...and lets be honest, food. ok maybe that was mostly me. but still. we didn't worry about the giant list of things we needed to get done when we got home, we just marveled at the little human constantly moving around in my belly. we talked about the really fun things to come about being parents.

#2. do pregnant women really need an excuse to leave the house to eat a bunch of food. be real. everyone loves vacations because you get to eat what you want when you want. we had a really great italian restaurant inside the resort we stayed at, which we ate at twice.

#3. location matters. get out of the house. this isn't a "staycation". it's a vacation. pick somewhere you love. and when i say you, i mean you...the one housing a human. i picked the west coast of florida on the beach because i love the beach. and my husband who loves me, even though doesn't love the beach, took me there. even if you can't travel far, pick a hotel or a b & b close by that you love.

#4. you need time with just the two of you. not speaking from any kind of experience when it comes how things go when the child actually arrives, but it's safe to say that for a while here time with just sonny is going to be at a minimum. we've also been surrounded by family and friends lately, which has been so wonderful, but it was great just having some time with just the two of us.

#5. i can't be the only pregnant woman who likes to cross things off a list of to dos. and this was a fun one.

make it a priority i promise you won't be disappointed!

(night one. and exactly one month till our due date)
