I'm Taking An Emotional Vacation

I had planned on a much different vacation recap for you guys. We just returned home from a week in Alberta, Canada, and my ideal recap would have involved stories of much laughter, countless meaningful conversations, galavanting around Calgary, and taking Banff by storm.

Instead, I am going to leave out most of the details. I don't think you want to know the total number of times that me and Brian threw up. Or what Nicholas' sad little cough sounds like. Or how many hives Brian currently has for some unknown reason.

It was a bit of a doozy. I don't share this with you to complain, but I like to keep things real around here. And this also explains why I was MIA from blog land & social media world last week. (Can you say 150+ unread blogs in my reader and lots of unanswered emails? Yikes.)

So in the spirit of what I had hoped my vacation recap would be like, I'll leave you with 3 photos that show the highlight of our trip - visiting Banff!

 At the Banff Springs Hotel (more like a CASTLE!)

Lake Minnewanka in Banff

Oh, and the other highlight of the week was the news of one of my very best friends having her sweet baby girl, Lilly! I can't wait to snuggle that little soon as all of our mystery illnesses are gone.

We are mostly feeling better (yay!), expect for poor Brian. I will share some more of the fun stories and photos soon. But for now I think I need to take an emotional vacation after our not-so-much-of-a-vacation. So I'm off to each too much chocolate, fold a lot of laundry, and snuggle my baby boy.

Have a great rest of the week!
