and we relaxed like i haven’t relaxed in months.

we slept in

at breakfast around lunchtime

and skipped lunch

and ate dinner whenever

and walked and talked and soaked each other up.

this might be the first time we’ve been away from the boys

when i just let myself ENJOY and not feel guilty.

i need to let go of guilt more often!

it also happened to be ‘spanish days fiesta’

which meant hollowed out eggs, elaborately painted and filled with confetti

parades and lots and lots of people.
