Relationship Connection

A baby does things to a couple. You get so focused on that bundle of joy that you forget about what brought you so much joy to bring that child into the world in the first place. I'm not just talking about sex. I'm talking about flirting, holding hands, sweet kisses, and just all around partner playing. 

We are 17 months into this baby business and we needed a come together, not a break. We needed to spend some time together away from Jack, away from the bills, away from the house, basically away from everything but each other. 

I'm gonna be honest. I was quite nervous about this trip. We've been snappy, rude, and have shared some hurtful words recently. The last thing I wanted was to get into a huge argument that would ruin our weekend away. 

Here I am in our hotel room on a Saturday night and I'm here to report that we have had a wonderful time. We have reconnected. I remembered why I fell in love with this man. We have been kind to each other. We have laughed a whole lot. We have been sweet, loving, and caring. It has been absolutely amazing. 

As the weekend is winding down so our we. Jeremy is laying in the bed watching television. I'm sitting in the chair relaxing. We were so busy having fun that I didn't even take any pictures. One of Jeremy's normal complaints is my phone always being in hand so I did my best to leave it in the room. 

What I do know is we can't wait so long to escape again. I want this relationship high to last us awhile. With all that is in me I hope this connection doesn't weaken as we enter back into reality. 

How often do you and your significant other get away? Any suggestions on how to keep the relationship vacation connection alive?


  1. Yay! I'm so glad you guys were able to get away for a bit.

    A and I rarely are able to get a weekend away without the kids. In fact, I can count on one hand the numbers of times it's happened. Once. Our first wedding anniversary after Ewan was born we took a long weekend to Asheville, NC. However, our situation is a little different since we work together and are together all day there as well as at home. We take our lunches together so we get some time just to ourselves then.

  2. You are so right! And isn't it great to have that alone time away? We try to go away on a weekend trip about every three months. We usually go to a bed and breakfast or some romantic hotel in our state. It is a wonderful time to reconnect. I'm glad you are enjoying yourselves. Keep it up!

  3. Yes yes yes! I thought the EXACT same words when we did our last getaway - "We remembered why we love each other!" You NEED that. We all do. We try tend to get away about once a year. Wish it were more, at least twice a year, but with no family around, that's the best we've managed! Better than nothing, right? ;)
