27th Birthday Suprise Getaway

Friday, March 23, 2012

 
 

There are some really beautiful moments in marriage when you are able to stop the maddness called life and just get away. They don't happen often enough, but when they do, they are food for the soul. No laundry, no work, no talking about adult things. When Joshua woke me up on Tuesday with the sweet words of, "Babe, go pack a bag, we're going on a trip!" I almost cried in sweet relief. It's been a crazy 2 months for us and I don't really think I realized how exhausted I was until we got away. The first thing we did? Take a nap on that heavenly bed.

He has a knack for knowing what I need... even when I don't realize it yet. And when we got home the next day, and I looked over at him from across the room... I realized how blessed I am. That's what pausing life can do for you. So that's when I said, "Baby, I had so much fun the last two days. I'm sad it's over." And him, "Babe, it's not over, we're married; we get to do this forever."

And that, my friends, is when the waterworks started gushing. And I realized that not only am I married to a pretty darn wonderful man, but at 21 weeks pregnant, the hormones are definitely in full-swing. Holy moly.

Hope you had a fab time! and enjoy the hormones....they're there for a very good reason. Enjoy the precious moments together because then there will be three. Then life begins again. Same life, but different all together.

Oh my gosh that is precious! He is too sweet and so are you! And it's kind of inspiring in a random way, to know there are still men out there like this! Glad y'all had a great time and you caught up on some much-needed rest. Happy belated birthday! xoxo

Haha--love that the hormones are in full swing.

Last year we went on one holiday right at the beginning of the year and I found it so hard and missed the little trips away. So this year we are taking shorter but more breaks and you are right, sometimes you just need to get away :)

What a great trip! And he is right - you get to to do it forever... the cray busy of life, the days where you kiss in the hallas you pass because that is al you have time for, and the days where your finally get to spend alone time together and you cherish it more than anything.

And you sealed the deal - we are going out for breakfast in the morning.
