I Remember You!


I am just hours away from going away from my home WITHOUT CHILDREN! I am meeting my husband in Salt Lake for Engineer's Conference (translation he goes to boring meetings and I shop and have lunch with my college roomies.) We get to go to a fancy dinner and listen about the states best roads...this probably doesn't sound fabulous to you but we flirt with each other and hold hands and I could care less what they are saying. Anywho, I adore my husband. I have been in love with him since I was 16 years old, but with our lives sometimes I hardly even see him. He is always so good to me. For instance I told him I wanted York peppermint patties in the shape of bats. They are my favorite and for some reasons I like them even more when shaped like bats....Now I just sort of said it off hand, I really didn't expect him to look, just if he happened to see one grab one for me. Weeks go by, I have forgotten and I assume so has he. Yesterday he tells me, "I have looked EVERYWHERE for those bats. I called Hershey Pennsylvania today and they said I can't get any, I'm really sorry." I have the world's greatest hubby and for the next 36 hours I get to be with him and I am so grateful! Should we take a poll on whether or not my sweet mom will need a vacation after 36 hours with my boys?

that is so awesome that he was looking for the bats!

i love the title of the post because i remember feeling exactly that way when jas and i went to denver for a weekend alone. we had so much fun laughing and talking and at one point i was like, 'wow, i remember you now!' its great to be able to have those opportunities. doesn't mean we didn't love them before, just good to have those early days remembered and rekindled. have a great time!

I hope you guys had a wonderful much needed vacation! It's so important and nice to sneak away together and remember, especially when you are parents. Some of my foundest memories are sneak away vactions. After Haiti you really deserved one. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
