Taking Time To Ourselves | Parent's Weekend Getaway

The last weekend of October Jeff & I attended WeAllGrow Familia in Los Angeles California! We decided to make it a trip just for us because we don't get a lot of non-work related time alone together. The conference would only be during the day and we would have pretty much the whole night to explore LA. This was Jeff's first time being in Los Angeles, and my first time actually getting to explore it so we took advantage of every opportunity to just soak it in and be together. None of our exploring would have been possible without Mazda graciously lending us the Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring for the weekend!

Our first stop was the Santa Monica Pier, where we walked around and snapped a couple of pictures! For those of you who wonder how we got this picture, we recently upgraded our camera to the Canon T6i which has the ability to connect to your phone via an app & wifi. The app has the feature where you can take a picture by clicking a button there and all we have to do is set it on a tripod. 

We made a trip down Hollywood Boulevard, which wasn't as glamorous as we thought it would be, but still was something we both had on our bucket list! This picture was taken by our good friend Jorge from Reality Changers. He was kind of our unofficial guide while we waited to pick up his wife from the train station.  

We also visited LACMA and Jeff showed my these light posts that I didn't even know existed. I love that Jeff is so adventurous when it comes to exploring. In the 5 years that we've been together, we've done way more than I ever thought I would, but only because Jeff is constantly pulling me out of my comfort zone. The Mazda CX-5 always reminds me of Jeff because it's adventurous & sporty. 

It's so important to remember to take time for yourselves after you have kids because it's easy to forget. Sometimes you just need time to reconnect! What do you do to reconnect with your partner without your kiddos?
