We’re back. Kenny and I. From a mini getaway – sans kids. Yes. You heard me right! When we received a letter about Kenny’s 10 year Law School Anniversary celebration we were so excited. We have such fond memories of our three years in Charlottesville, Virginia and love traveling back to reminisce, re-live the good old days, and most importantly to eat at our favorite bagel bakery and to say y’all every chance we get. My mom flew into San Diego to watch my kids for the weekend (an angel straight from heaven!) and Kenny and I fled without looking back.
We had the best time. From the minute we were in the car alone riding to the airport. It was magical. We had long conversations with no interruptions. No passing back crackers or a binkie. No intercepting an almost fight about who is going to play with which barbie first. We held hands. We laughed at each others’ stupid jokes. We were a couple again. Young and in love. Well sorta young, and mostly just in love with the fact that we were about to spend three days together with no kids, no responsibilities, and no kids. Did I mention no kids?
We woke up each morning and went on our favorite walk. The Thomas Jefferson Parkway trail right next to our old apartment. Also right next to Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello.
This picture is from our walk in the Fall. It’s our favorite place to visit when we make a trip to Virginia. We used to walk this trail every weekend together and talk about our plans. Our someday family. All of our dreams for the future. It felt surreal walking our trail now, 10 years later, after so many of those dreams have come true. Made me feel incredibly grateful and incredibly old all at the same time. :)
Kenny’s main partner in crime. I used to come home from working round the clock to hear about my husband’s day which usually included more time spent playing Xbox with Will than actually studying law. These two were always up to no good and it’s a real treat to listen to them re-live some of their moments together. Good times indeed.
