This is just an outlet for me, to be able to get my thoughts out! I am a Woman, Wife and Mommy that also works outside the home! Just me trying to make it all work for the best for my family and myself! Just my journey!

Celebrating Us

We and I mean Hubby and I, headed off to vacation, sans les enfants!!  It was beautiful and exciting.  I (we) looked forward to vacationing together, just the two of us.
We set out for our cruise!!
We did enjoy ourselves!
And it was fun!
I loved having the time alone with my hubby!
 I missed the kiddos!  I thought it would be easier to leave them as they got older.  We have always made it a point to take a vacation, just the two of us, every few years!  I always say, it's important for us to go on our own because I have to like hubby when the kiddos are gone and if everything is always about raising them and taking care of them, where is the time invested in us!  It was difficult to leave them this time!  The most difficult ever!
I think it has to do with knowing they are closer to the age of leaving home, then they are the age of living at home!
              I missed them terribly
(bad attitudes and all)!
Now that's pretty bad!
We did celebrate us and we did enjoy one another, but I don't think a week long vacation alone, is in our near future!  I want to soak up every minute I can with my kiddos!
Of course, after a few eye rolls and a few heavy sighs, I'll be changing my tune!!
  Funny how that works!!


  1. Look at you surfing! You go, Chrissy! What a great example you are to your kids. Just think about the example you're setting for them for their future marriages. It's awesome.

  2. I am so behind on my blog reading but it's fun playing catch up. Looks like you and hubby had a great time. I am so impressed by your surfing abilities! And I fully agree with you on your view of vacationing just the two of you every now and then. Before you know it, it will be just you both.
