Sounds Like Life

The more Hubby and I try to regain some energy, get a little R&R, regroup and plan for the future, the more I realize the life is just crazy and beautiful and tiring and hard to plan for.

I am learning more and more that everyone's life has seasons (in parenting, long seasons) where marriage is teamwork more than romance, and chores more than dates... the key is to find someone who makes the teamwork and chores fun and romantic.

I am so lucky that Hubby and I share life together... and we love each other through the broken plans, the exhausted days, the endless semesters of graduate school, the uncertainty about the future, the piles of laundry, and tag-teaming the toddler... life is absolutely crazy, and, with my Hubby, it is an absolute dream come true.

Just Us

For the past ten days, Hubby has been in Colorado while Tracey Ann and I were in Michigan... and that is hard.  We are so lucky that we do not have to live in that long-distance situation more frequently.  He arrived in Michigan with us here on Tuesday night and it is so wonderful to have my Hubby back again.

I will post pictures soon, I'm sure, of Hubby and Tracey Ann and the fun we are having in Michigan... but for today... these are pictures of just us.

I missed him so much.
