After spending a few weeks giving away some of my favorite things, I want to add one more thing to the list . . . but first I want to tell you all the reasons why it has become one of my favorites.
This past week has been unforgettable. We took off early one morning, and—despite being stuck on a snowy freeway that was closed for over two hours —continued on the long journey to St. George. Driving towards warmer weather was our motivation, but also to get away as a family.
All of our road trips, up to this point, have been to visit extended family or speaking engagements and interviews. So this time, we had no schedule—nobody waiting for us to arrive—just the eight of us.
It was so relaxing. Some days we just hung out by the pools all day, other days we got dressed up and went to a nice dinner. We literally had no itinerary, and no expectations.
And the location, and the view, could not be beat. The resort was about five minutes outside of St. George, but felt like we were in the most beautiful oasis of desert views with plateaus, red rock, and behind those were majestic Utah Mountains that seemed to touch the sky.
Yet, five minutes away we could buy an In and Out burger or Chick-fil-A. (Burger for Shawn, nuggets for me)
We had a three-bedroom suite. The four girls had a room with double queen bunk beds, and a big queen bed room for the boys. The master bedroom had it’s own jetted tub, and king size bed, and a closet bigger than mine at home.
The fireplace in the living room was cozy, and the TV was fully loaded with Net Flix, and cable, and all the shows anyone would want to watch. The kitchen was elegant, and equipped with all the kitchen appliances and cookware we needed.
All around, it was like being at home on vacation. Shawn was happy our car was parked in a covered garage, and I was happy that the patio overlooked the mountains and it had a laundry room to get caught up every day. The kids were happy that the outdoor pool was heated. They played marco polo while bouncing back and forth between the indoor pool and the fresh air outside.
