Many working moms work because they have to. Either they have to make ends meet. Or they need to maintain their lifestyles. As a working mom, I know that working and balancing the checkbook can become all consuming. We need to recognize that tendency and fight it.
Family vacations are important.
Vacations are important. Vacations give you the opportunity to re-connect with your family, do things that you don't normally do, and relax. I know that budgets are tight. Indeed, we currently have two mortgages and are in the middle of home renovations. Some days it seems as if money is flying out of the window. That said, we will never get this time back. So, it is important to pause and enjoy the families we hold so dear. We have yet to take a vacation this year, but we will get away if only for a few days because we understand that vacations pay for themselves in smiles.
Below is a video or a recent vacation we took to Virginia Beach. Enjoy the video. I hope it inspires you to take a vacation of your own!
