Catching a Glimpse



I had a fabulous weekend in VA Beach with Loverman! We drove down there to attend the Mid Atlantic Black Film Festival. The festival was ok, but what I got a kick out of the most was getting away for just 48 hours with my husband, sans the kids. We never take time away like we did this weekend. We always travel as a tribe of four and although I’m told all the time about the importance of spending time alone with your mate, these moments have been few and far between for the two of us. Well, no more! I’m absolutely giddy about how much I enjoyed myself with my husband. We had a great time talking about tons of things, not just about the kids… work… mundane stuff. We unexpectedly caught up with folks we haven’t seen in years, met new people… sort of felt like who we were before becoming parents to Olivia and Yannick. On our way home this afternoon, I felt completely sated because in those few hours away I was reminded how much I really dig this man and caught a glimpse of who we are in addition to being mom and dad.

wonderful! try to do this often, because, cliche as it sounds, the kids will be off to college soon and it will just the two of you.

Awesome! I was just thinking that my hubby and I need to get away - solo - soon. Glad you all had such a good time.

Angela, I hear you... I read your posts about your son away at college and your daughter's weeks at overnight camp and I'm reminded our time together moves quickly. We will do this more often.

Nerd Girl, Just do it!
