Tomorrow the hubs and I are leaving on a jet plane. In 24 hours we will be on our way to Rome, where we will celebrate our 6 year anniversary by frolicking through the Colosseum, throwing coins in the Trevi Fountain and sipping wine on the Spanish steps. Then we are going to head to Paris to play on the Eiffel Tower, eat Nicoise salads and check out the art at the Louvre. At the end of our solo vacation we are going to stop in on Brussels to eat chocolate and drink some beer.
I am excited and really looking forward to some alone time with Shane. We only see each other 3 days a week and those days are shared loving our Kaili. This getaway is going to be really good for us. However I am going to miss this face more than words can express.
As much as I will miss her, I know she will be in great hands and have so much fun with her aunt and uncle and both sets of her grandparents. I worry she will miss me but kids are resilient, I am the one who will have the harder time.
At the end of the month our folks are flying Kaili out to London where we will meet them at the flat we are renting in Camden. I am already excited about being reunited with my sweet babe.
As wonderful as mommyhood is, it doesn’t come with much time off , this trip is exactly what I need after the past few years I have had. I am a very lucky girl to be able to go on a vacation like this and I intend to enjoy every second of it.
Stay tuned for some Italian fun!
