Monday is Brandon's birthday. Friday night we escaped "life" for 24 hours to run off and celebrate with just the two of us.
We only got about 2 hours away but it felt like forever away to me. Shifting from "mom mode" to "wife mode" is difficult for me. He laughs at me because I struggle with this so much. It is hard for me to leave the girls and not feel guilty for leaving. I don't know why I do this, they are always excited for us to go on a date because that means slumber party with someone they love! They were literally chanting "Ross and Audra" that morning when they woke up. That in itself should have been enough for me to feel "ok" with leaving!
Even though we get away.....I am never really away. There is always a part of my mind that is thinking about the girls, wondering what they are doing or if they miss me. I think that is just part of being their mom. I unpacked my bag when we got to the hotel and Audree's bottle lid fell out. And then at dinner I looked in my purse to get something and Cerly's dora sticker was on top. Those little, random things keep me connected to them and remind me of their sweet faces when I am away.
I did try my best to have fun with my favorite guy in the whole world! It was nice to have long conversations without interruptions and car rides without a screaming child. Like I said...the little things. Dinner was amazing and honestly I just enjoyed being away from all distractions.
I love Brandon so much. I love that he has known me since I was a 12 year old little girl. I love that he is the daddy to our daughters. I love the way he takes care of me and the way that he loves me back. I love that God allowed our paths to cross so many years ago and I love that he chose me.
My life is sweeter because of him.
Snow Day! Technically Ice.. but Snow Day!
