That Time I Spent 24 Hours With My Husband

When was the last time you and you're spouse spent 24 straight hours together? No kids, no friends, away from the monotony of home, just you two. It had been awhile for us. While we're super lucky to have grandparents who like seeing our children, we usually fill up that kid free time cleaning the house, DIYing & baking (me), working or doing man things (him) and don't fully just hang out.

Those 24 hours away from home last week, just the two of us, reminded me of a few things.

I really love a dinner where I don't have to feed someone else or get up from the table 65 times because someone needs ketchup or a drink or they crapped their pants.

J and I are perfectly capable of having a grown up conversation where we don't talk about our kids.

I remembered why I started dating my husband in the first place. It really is true that you can still date even when you're married. And we need to be doing it way more often.

An adult drink cozied up in a hotel bed is perfection and it's even better when you've got someone next to you. And you don't have to make said bed in the morning.

When our kids get older we are going to make them serve us every meal in bed, room service style. And by older I mean in a few weeks.

The biggest thing I took away from this time together was that I really do love my husband. Not that I doubted it or didn't, but it's nice to feel that connection with your partner again which can easily get lost in the day to day hassle of diaper changes and dishes.

Who knows, maybe next time it'll be 48 hours.
