So we are off! I am going away for the weekend with the Mr. *does a happy dance*
We go away 4 times a year, even if it’s just for a night at a hotel or a weekend alone at the cottage. Last year we went away for 7 days to the cottage. That was a real treat! I cherish our weekends away. The time seems to just fly by. I chose to share my life with Alex. I’m so glad that I did.
If you are married or in a live in relationship with children do you take time away with your partner? Do you have a regular date night?
Alex and I tend to go out once weekly sometimes once per two weeks. Mind you we have built in babysitters. Our teenage daughters just hang out and watch movies and we head out when the little’s are in bed or close to it. We pay them to babysit most of the time so it’s a win-win. My daughters are awesome girls. Smart, sweet, funny, caring, helpful and fun to be around.

I’m often asked how we ‘do it’. By doing it people mean manage such a busy, hectic, active, demanding life style.
For me it is my time away with Alex. Our time away recharges my batteries, reminds me why our life is the way that it is, centers me and fills my love tank so it can overflow to the children. I like the example that we are setting for our children, that your couple love and partner are also a priority not only the children. I know that my teen girls see that and appreciate it. I know they also know I will be an awesome Grandmum to their children one day and that Alex and I will be there to help them with their little ones and their relationships one day.
If you want leave me some comments about your perspective on relationships, time spent, date night and priorities. I will read them Monday when I return.
Happy weekend and be well!
