Refuel Your Marriage – Cape Cod Getaway Highlights

As I mentioned yesterday, Leanne and I had the wonderful opportunity to take a vacation to Cape Cod.  We dropped the kids off with Leanne’s folks for the week, and we enjoyed some time away for just the two of us.  We try to get away at least once a year without the kids.  Usually, it’s just for a night or two, but this year we decided to extend it to almost a week to celebrate our anniversary.  In the past, we’ve enjoyed our stays at different inns that offer a bed and breakfast type atmosphere.  This year was no different.  We stayed at the One Centre Street Inn in Yarmouth Port, MA.  It was such a refreshing experience to wake up to a gourmet breakfast every morning after a quiet nights sleep.  Here are the brief highlights from our trip:

Monday – Travel and an evening at Dennis Beach (on the Cape Cod Bay)

Sunset on Dennis Beach

Tuesday – Martha’s Vineyard

Thursday – Provincetown and Cape Cod Baseball League

Friday – Nauset Beach and an evening in Chatham, MA

As you can see, we had an adventurous week.  Time like this is so important for refueling our marriage.  It gets us away from the distractions of home life.  It provides an opportunity to focus on us.  It gives us a chance to take a break and relax.  It gives us a chance to enjoy each other.  And it gives us a chance to talk about the future and to set goals.  (And by the way, our kids had a blast with Grammy and Pappap.)

If you’re married, I strongly encourage you to get away with your spouse on a regular basis to refuel .
