I am currently in HAWAII!!! And life in Hawaii is so, so good. This is one of my favorite places to be, and I can't stop thinking about the importance of getting away with your love.
So I've put together 5 reasons to plan a getaway with your love :)
1. We need to talk.
...Luckily, this phrase is not nearly as scary as when you are dating and you assume you're about to break up. It's just true. As a couple, it is so important to carve out space to just talk with each other. At home, bills and errands and kids and meetings and work and friends (yes, even friends) get in the way of the connection that a relationship so desperately needs to stay alive. When you're away from home, you can talk. Uninterrupted.
2. Shared experiences are the best experiences.
You know when you're a kid and you go away to camp with all your friends? Think about how much closer you are after getting back. It's like everyone who went to camp and shared camp experiences is now part of a secret club of best friendship. We need that too! You and your love are a team and you make up your own club. Share experiences!
3. Get a Fresh Perspective.
Going away to a new place breaks up our daily grind. There is a quote that says, "The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having fresh eyes." and having a getaway kills two birds with one stone! It helps you to remember that there is life outside of your town. Seeing your love in a new environment helps you to fall in love with them again, and we are a big fan of that.
4. Relax, Recharge, Rejuvenate
Life is BUSY. We all need some rest now and again. So remember that in the middle of having crazy experiences while you're away, it's also important to snuggle up and just relax. Together. Because being recharged at the same time is so much more fun than playing tag-team at home. :)
5. Create new memories.
In reality, you may not always have each other. Or more simply, your relationship is bound to hit some speed bumps. Memories are one of the best things to cling to in times of pain or sorrow. Make some good ones! They could help to restore brokenness. Connect, enjoy each other, share the love, and laugh a lot. These are sweet times that you can hold onto forever.
So, where are you headed? :)
