Alone Time Is A Must!

So, as I said in the previous post, Noah went to stay with his Nana and Papa (my parents) this weekend. We dropped him off with Nana on Thursday and picked him up this afternoon. So Brian and I have had basically two full days alone. Thursday night we went out to dinner and did a bit of shopping and then rented movies and watched those together till we went to bed. Then yesterday was Brian's birthday so we went to a hotel and went out last night to celebrate his birthday and New Year's Eve!

I have to tell you, I have fallen in love with my husband all over again! We had time to have REAL conversations without being interrupted, we had time to cuddle alone, we had time to laugh and flirt and act like the couple we were and are!! It was so nice and so amazing! I love that man so much and a good reminder of that is always a wonderful thing!

So moms and dads, if its not already a goal or resolution for the new year, I say make it a goal to spend more alone time with your significant other! It does so much for your relationship with each other and even your relationship with your children! It will bring you all closer as a family and hopefully, like I got to this weekend, you'll get the chance to fall in love all over again! <3
True Love!!

  1. Oh I am soo happy for you guys that you were able to spend that time together! I also found even a date night to dinner and a movie is nice too! We plan on spending some couple time alone at least once or twice a month in the new year!

    I know that feeling of falling in love all over again. My husband when back home to West Africa for 2 weeks over the holidays. I also fell in love with him all over again when he came back home. I have a new found appreciation for him, now that I know what it's like to not have him. The saying that distance can make the heart grow fonder is so true.

    I hope you are able to schedule alone time for yourselves this year too!

  5. Alone time is a must! I miss having time with my hubby. We use to be able to have regular dates, but our babysitter is no longer so now we don't get that time anymore.
