For Christmas this year I decided to gift Michael with a surprise night away. We are both so connected and busy, that more than gifts, I know he would appreciate a break. The boys stayed with my parents, and Michael and I returned to a favorite, local, wilderness destination and spent the night in a magical yurt. At Savage River Lodge we slowed down. We read, took walks, ate delicious meals at the charming lodge, reflected on our boys, drank wine in front of our fireplace, and dreamed about the future together. It was the perfect escape filled with time to rest, reset and recenter.
