Alone Time

After 12 years of marriage Joe and I took a weekend off.  That's right, I said 12 years.  All I can say is why didn't we do this before?!  For Joe's birthday I arranged a weekend getaway for the two of us.  I was going to try to surprise Joe with it by kidnapping him from work with some lame, "I'm taking you to a birthday lunch" and then not going back, but his work and school schedule are so crazy right now I had to make sure he could get the time off on the Friday we went.  Thankfully it worked out. 

It was so much fun to be somewhere, with my husband, alone.  We actually talked and laughed and had a really good time together.  We went to some really nice restaurants and had good food and conversation.  We spent Saturday in Seattle at the Space and Science Museum.  We went up to the top of the space needle and walked around one of the other exhibits.  It was such a good day.  I had a really nice time and even though I missed the kids, it was worth it!  I would definitely do it again sooner rather then later.  A weekend away was just what I needed, just what we needed.  We were able to reconnect and grow closer together as a couple.  I would highly recommend getting away to anyone that asks.  We are so much better after our weekend together.

I totally support kidless get aways. I also support mom get aways. I did one this summer, I forgot I can be fun, and I forgot a few things I like to do! Hope you make this one a tradition.
