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.
A friend and I were chatting over lunch about wanting/needing a weekend away with our respective husbands. She commented that it had been far too long since they went away together — it’s been almost a year. They have a great support system and a lot of family nearby, which means that they can leave their kids in good hands and enjoy time away together.
We don’t have that same kind of support because our extended family is pretty far flung. We did manage to go to Las Vegas for our tenth anniversary two years ago, and we went to Mexico for a week five years ago, but we definitely don’t have frequent weekends (or even nights) away. We do manage to get out on a date night every two weeks or so, which is no small feat.
How about you? Do you go away together often, or is it a rare occasion?
