with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
I mentioned a few weeks back that my husband and I were about to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary. Last Thursday (May 20th) was the Big Day. We spent the bulk of it en route to the destination we had chosen to celebrate this momentous occasion: Las Vegas.
Neither of us had ever been and we spent our days walking (and walking and WALKING) and taking in the sights. Many photos were taken, many meals were enjoyed, many memories were made. We’ve been home less than a day, so the high of a getaway is still fresh.
Our last major getaway was two years ago when we managed to escape to Mexico for a week (A week!). I know that it can be hard enough to even manage to get away for a Date Night but I find that these excursions do so much for us as a couple. We get to just be me, and him, and us. We are not “Mommy” and “Daddy” but “Angella and “Matthew”. We also had the distinct pleasure of sleeping in until nine o’clock in the morning. It was wonderful.
Now, I know that a weekend away is not doable for many (Or even us, usually. Many thanks to my sister who has just moved back from New Zealand and has not started job hunting yet). But maybe it is doable for you. Or maybe you find other ways to get away from the every day and just focus on being you and him (or you and her).
Where do you go to get away?
