Kidless vacation

This morning I had homemade blueberry muffins and strawberries for breakfast at home with Drew, William, and Lauren.  A week from today I'll be having breakfast (which I don't have to make or clean up after) at the W hotel in Atlanta with my family.  And by family I mean with Chris, my brother, sister-in-law, my niece, my 2 cousins, aunt, uncle, and mom.  Notice I didn't mention the kids?

My cousin, David, and his fiancee Teni are getting married on June 27th.  Chris and I are joining them to celebrate and I can't wait.  Love weddings, love them, so excited for them and this time in their lives.

While we're at the wedding, Chris's parents will be caring for the kids.  Huge thanks to them for that!  After the wedding, Chris is coming home to be with the kids while mom and I continue on to Boston and Connecticut.  I missed going to Boston last summer because I was at home nursing Lauren but this year I'm free!  I have such mixed feelings about leaving everyone for so long, though.  I know - it's good for them, good for me, good for Chris, blah, blah, blah, but Friday to Friday is a long time.  What will I do without having to open an applesauce or pour a glass of milk for someone for 7 whole days?  Mom may be in for an adventure with me.  I may even cut her meat at dinner.

As the trip gets closer, I am trying to worry less about leaving my kids and just looking forward to spending time with just Chris as we travel, meeting Jennie's new love, seeing my aunt, enjoying the wedding, and then doing my annual summer travels with my mom.  It's all good.

Huge congrats to David and Teni.  Looking forward to celebrating with you.  xoxo


  1. Cute post! I truly hope that you enjoy your trip to the fullest, yes you'll miss the kiddos, but I'm sure that when you return seeing the kids will be that much sweeter! xo

  2. I'm not going to Connecticut, I'm going to Vermont and New Hampshire. I do hope you're planning to come with me. We'll have a good time and coming home will be that much sweeter.
