It’s incredible what a few days of undisturbed, quality time as a couple can do for your marriage. We just wrapped a fabulous weekend away filled with all the things we used to take for granted BK (before kid) including uninterrupted chats in the car, music festivals, late nights, sleep (my hubby way more than me…body clock wakes me up at 7:30a everyday) brunch and laid back fun. A few days of no responsibility feels good.
It was so refreshing to just be together, hang out and focus on us – not as a party of three, but as a couple. It felt like we were dating again…and I loved it!
Don’t get me wrong, I love our son and little family more than anything, but every once in a while, it’s nice to have solo time to enjoy and remember all the reasons you fell in love in the first place. Sam is my best friend and we have so much fun together – everything is an adventure, we laugh at the silly stuff, rock out to the music and enjoy good food with gusto.
As we head back home to pick up our son together from daycare, we’re thankful for having friends who are better than family and who open up their home and heart to Westley for a weekend, so we can re-charge as a couple without worrying one bit about how our son is doing. From pool parties and snuggles to sprinkler action and playtime, he had an absolute blast with cousin Bella, his Tia and Nino.
Feeling refreshed and beyond lucky for everything in my life. This long weekend was chicken soup for our soul and our marriage.
How do you reconnect and recharge as a couple? Would love to hear from you!
