We ended up at a quaint Airbnb 15 minutes outside of downtown Bellingham - swimming pool included. Their fabulous garden with "harvest as much as you want" produce was an added perk! Escaping the city for a low-key countryside stay was exactly the retreat I wanted. It reminded me a lot of summer days at my Papa's farm in Missouri, even more so because I spent the weekend phone-free.
We ventured into town each morning, but hunkered down at the Airbnb each afternoon and evening and were in bed by 9:30pm every night. Soaking up all the sleep we can get before baby NW arrives and shakes things up. Having our relationship be just the two of us for 11 year now (six years married), it's going to be quite a wild ride welcoming an infant to our family! Thankful for all the opportunities we've had to vacation, explore, and travel together and excited for what that will look like as a family of three!

By all accounts our "Bellyingham" babymoon weekend was a success - most significantly since I didn't go into labor on "Labor" Day...at least not yet :)
