Before we got married Mr. D and I did pre-marital counseling with my Uncle, who married us. One thing that he said to us, and we have never forgotten, is that we as a couple need to take time and put time into our marriage. He told us that he and his wife take weekends away together even if "getting away" is a night away just down the street. We have taken this advice to heart and tried our best to do so. There are a million reasons why getting away can sometimes seem difficult; we're too busy, it's too expensive, we can't find a babysitter...all understandable however nothing should ever get in the way of working on your marriage. Which leads me to our weekend away! We talked about a number of possibilities but decided on hitting the big city of Toronto together.
Mr. D works in Toronto everyday, however it's an exciting city and a city we visited often when we were dating. Friday afternoon I dropped The Boss off at her grandparents and headed for the city. I felt kinda like the Bachelorette...meeting my handsome date in a big city, and running around care free like two kids in love. I actually felt butterflies in my stomach checking into the hotel and meeting my man in the lobby. We spent a wonderful weekend shopping, eating out and drinking lots of coffee...while it was still hot. It was such a wonderful time to reconnect with my Man and focus our attention on each other instead of our wild child!
If you have the opportunity I really encourage you to take sometime with the one you love.
*Later this week we will return to The Boss' second birthday party and the tutorials that accompany it.
