Sometimes I do too much.
And in my attempts to do and be everything, things naturally get lost by the wayside.
For instance, I said something to my husband about not spending enough time together a few weeks back.
You know when you just have those "off" weeks...those weeks when you feel like two separate people just co-habitating side by side?
When life gets in the way and those times strike, it makes me long for the moments when you can look at your partner after almost ten years and still get butterflies in your tummy.
The times when you are just moving through life in perfect sync with each other.
Dare I say like soul mates?
When I told my husband we were having one of those "off" weeks he commented that I spend time here in bloggyworld during some of those moments I could be spending with him.
The photo taking, the uploading, the editing (in my case just means flipping them right side up) the reading and commenting on my favorite blogs all takes a lot of time.
And since I work full time outside of the home, I don't have tons of it.
While I have enjoyed this summer immensely and done so many fun things, I realized this weekend how much I have missed some of the most important people in my life.
And how I love spending time with them.
Like meeting my two month old niece Sophie Grace for the very first time
Spending some long overdue time with my brother and his fiancee who we normally do everything with. We have only seen them three times since Christmas.
Being out in public with my son in a setting where he is not embarassed to be seen with his mother.
And getting a good laugh out of how goofy my husband is!
Watching my niece Vera Elizabeth (somewhat)enjoy her very first birthday party.
This little girl has brought so much joy and love in my life, sometimes she makes my heart feel like it will explode!
Being with my mom again after 8 long months of not seeing her.
Never in my (almost)37 years have I not seen my mom for that long!
And of course, spending some time with my hubby!
