The little people I missed!

Love and I are back from our little weekend getaway and it was delightful! Absolutely perfect. I only had 1 breakdown. It was about 4 hours after we had been away and I cried about missing the kids. Love looked at me like I was insane, recovered quickly because he knows how I hate it when he acts like I'm crazy (when I am!) and then said, "I know, it's hard being away from the kids. Now, lets do some shopping!" Does that man know me and how to cheer me up or what?!?!?!

My little Darlings didn't want to talk to me on the phone and the one time that Caleb did he told me that he didn't miss me and forgot I was even gone! What?! I give you everything I have, pour my heart and soul into you, and adore the ground you walk on AND this is how you feel about me?!


Then, today, when they saw me they both ran up to me, hugged me tightly and cried. I knew they loved me.

It was reinforced at dinner tonight when we asked the kids our nightly dinner question, "What was the favorite part of your day?" Both boys said, "When I saw you and you came home." Gosh, I love those little people

I really did have a wonderful trip. The B & B that we stayed at was absolutely charming, our hosts were a total hoot, we did some fun hiking in a spot that looked nothing like Texas and everything like Colorado, had fun shopping (I had a lot of fun, Lovey said he had fun buying me things - I heart that man!) in the cutest little town, and ate at some fabulous restaurants with live music and great food.

Best of all we were without our little Love's, able to finish a conversation, and able to refocus on our marriage and the kind of parents we want to be.

That is so special Sabrina! What a treat. I am so glad you enjoyed it, and it sounds like you'll even do it again someday.

We have our own little getaway next month, and I am beyond nervous. There is so much to do beforehand, and I am sad because I never leave my babies. Ever. I know it will be good for us and for our marriage, so thanks for the reminder. I needed to hear it.

We need a weekend like that! I'm so glad you got away and that part about finishing a conversation sounds really wonderful!

Being away from the babies is hard...I'm leaving on Thursday for Columbus, OH for a friend's wedding...and I'm leaving the kids with Randy. I definitely have mixed feelings about the trip, but I know I'll come back refreshed and ready to take on the world after a fun weekend with the girls.

SO glad the two of you were able to get some alone time together and have FULL conversations (and shop). ;-)
