Summer days are fast approaching and I’m already anticipating the kids’ cries of “Mom!  We’re bored!”  In an attempt to prevent that from happening this year, we started planning our family vacation the day after school started in the fall.  You might ask why we start planning the family vacation so early.  It’s simple … we live on a $30,000 a year budget and have to carefully plan luxuries such as vacations in order to stick to that budget.

How To Afford Family Vacation On $30,000 A Year

Do you need a family vacation? Who doesn’t? If you don’t take one soon will your insanity build until it topples in heaps? Were you thinking gosh I need a vacation as you were cleaning dishes for the 90th time today? You were wondering who dropped all these dishes off and when your dishwasher relief was coming in for the second shift?

You waited for them as the dishes piled up once more. You came to the conclusion you were first shift, second, shift, third shift, and the last shift.

Family Vacation Getaway at Sands Bethlehem

I am not a fan of winter by any means. I don’t like winter sports, and if I am totally honest, I only go out because my kids need to get out and play. Plus, well, life requires it. Cold weather is something I could do without. Come spring I am beyond anxious to be able to play outside with my family and to start taking trips again. If you are looking for a place to go with your family, this spring Sands Bethlehem is just the place for your family vacation getaway this year.

Why Taking A Weekend to Yourself Can Save the Best Part of You

Best Ladies Weekend Getaways

This post is about how to fill the hole created when you take care of everyone else all the time.

Motherhood is like gum stuck on a shoe. Sometimes I never want to let them go, and sometimes I do not want to claim ownership. I have struggled for years with “Do I give them enough?” to the point where I felt like I gave them my all.

I just want to be me so I looked for the best ladies weekend getaways each year.

I receive an opportunity for a girl’s weekend in conjunction with a work event, and I was finally going to RSVP “Yes”.

In the span of the last twelve years, my life has morphed into theirs. My oldest was born and fours years later his sister and then less than two years later surprise, they are getting a brother.

I needed something special, so I chose me.
