Just The Two of Us...

So it's been just us...the Husband and I, without the Atlanta.

Sharing a room in a boutique hotel...having time with my family - an aunt and several of my cousins...walking to places...alone.

Just the two of us.

The first time in 7 years, we think.  And it's been lovely...

Mind you, it hasn't been three full days of just us, especially yesterday since he had his conference all day and I was with my Atlanta family all day (a great time, let me tell you...) but...

...mentally, it's been just us.

And it's been good.

I haven't worried incessantly over the kids (like I thought I would).  Maybe just once, when I was told by the Grandma that the 6 year old came home quiet yesterday from school and just wanted to be alone.  But otherwise, no worries.

Just snuggles deep within soft, comforting white pillows and sheets while looking through the floor-to- ceiling windows that cover the wall facing the bed, at a beautiful view of Atlanta...

Just relaxing on top of the bed, reading...

Just walking hand-in-hand with the Husband to wherever, whenever...


We're heading back home today.  Soon it will be Just the five of us again.  Not a bad thing.

But rest assured, I look forward to the next time it can be just the two of us...



  1. I'm so glad you two got a chance to get away! :)

  2. Ah...what bliss! I honestly can't remember the last time we were away w/out the kids. It's at least three years ago! Good for you and I'm glad you had such a nice time!

  3. Happy for you. Here is to many more!

  4. yay yay yay! I knew it would be perfect. And you guys looks so happy.

  5. Don't you think that's such important wisdom to give out to new parents? To get away, it's so important to get away.


Please...speak your mind!
