thank you all so much for the sweet advice for me on my buddy's vacation.
i feel a little silly having so much anxiety about a week away when a lot of mama's say goodbye for the entire summer. and even though he will be gone for 3 more weeks spread out throughout the summer, i'm counting my blessings.
matt took the week off and we've been spending it side by side.
the goal was to stay in and shape things up around the house while max was away.
so far we've gone thrifting, eaten every meal out instead of going to the grocery, saw a late night movie and sat in the back row so we could kiss a little bit (paris will do that do a girl), had a rainy morning backyard picnic watching storm clouds roll in, stayed up and slept in and haven't touched one stitch of laundry.
it's been nice going where the wind takes us these past few days...
catching up on sleep and getting tiny tastes of real adult life.
but really i'd take early bedtimes and fetching legos out of ears any day.
