Mamas-only Yurt Trip



Does this little plant realize what an amazing view it has?

Looking for agates where the creek empties out into the ocean, buurr!

A few fossil treasures and driftwood for a craft project.
Well it only took me 12 years to do it, but this past weekend I went on a little overnight trip with some mama friends without our kids. We booked a yurt down on the coast and had some really relaxing beach time without having to keep a constant eagle eye out for children the whole time.
It was the longest time I have ever been away from Nalah and she is still a pretty big nurser(mostly for comfort at night). I tried pumping  a bunch so Nalah would be set, but doing so I ended up increasing my milk supply and getting really painfully engorged, like hard as a rock melon sized, super painful, engorged.
Despite the painful milk boob issue it was a nice little break, with  beautiful warm sunny weather.  The ocean was bluer than it has ever been.

Sounds like a lovely trip (despite the engorged boobs)... that sucks (no pun intended).

I love yurts. I keep on telling my hubby that I want a plot of land with a yurt and we can live off the land. He laughs and calls me crazy.

Wishing you a lovely week.
