Hello, bloggy buddies. I’m sure you’re getting tired of my on-again, off-again appearances here lately. Just when I finally get my act together with WordPress and figure out how to upload my photos, I disappear. Well, I had a good reason. My birthday was on Friday and my husband, the stellar man that he is, has been treating me to a weekend to remember, and I only just now have a minute to sit down and reconnect with you all.
JDubbs surprised me with a spa manicure and pedicure on Friday before taking me out to one of my favorite restaurants. His parents had the kids for the night so we were off duty and got to spend the night in the deep, restful kind of slumber that comes when you’re not half-listening for a baby or wondering if your preschooler is going to journey out of his new big boy bed. Then yesterday, my mom, niece, and nephew came up to babysit for the night and we headed two hours away to really rural Vermont, to a cozy little inn…
where I’ve had time to read an entire book, take some photos,
eat some yummy food, and make a new friend.
Now, JDubbs is off at a cooking class, which I gave him as a Christmas present, and I am relaxing in a cool little cafe in town, people-watching, eaves-dropping on conversations, and wondering if there is any way I could surreptitiously photograph this man with the beard and suspenders without him noticing me. Then home to tuck in my babies and start the week refreshed and happy, lucky to be married to such a thoughtful man and to have such great family who helps us find a little time for just us two every now and then.
