Happy birthday to us! My husband and I had a 24+ hour getaway this weekend to celebrate our birthday togethers. This couldn’t have come at a better time.
I really struggled this week with the day to day life of being a mom. It was rough. It was filled with highs and lows. I love the days that we are together as a family of four. But on the days when I am alone with two kids, it can be a struggle. This week was one of those crazy weeks when the stars just did not align for me. This birthday getaway was my reset button.
I just needed to be alone with my husband and enjoy each others company and reconnect. It was exactly what we needed. So my amazing in-laws watched the kids for one night, Jaap and I escaped to this cute chateau in north Limburg, and had a fabulous time, complete with a delicious meal that I will never forget. Long conversations without interruptions, luxurious food and tasty wines, reading books on the tetras, sleeping in tip 8:45 (!!!) and spending quality time together. I feel like myself again. Amen.
If you’re in the neighbourhood, check out Aubergine. Absolutely amazing!
