where I just got back from...a day at the coast with Dr. Wonderful! His birthday was yesterday and I wanted to do something special for him. My wonderful in-laws gladly took the kids for us(I really do have the best in-laws). He was so surprised when I told him I had packed our bag and we were leaving for one of our favorite B&B's (pre kids of course) for the day/night.
I can't encourage couples enough to get away, just the two of you for even a little while. It was so nice to have time to relax, talk about stuff you used to talk about pre-kids, and not feel completely exhausted.
And look what he bought ME at one of those cute boutiques on his birthday!
