I hope you are all doing well. My husband & I recently went on our 15 year Anniversary trip to Seattle, WA with just the two of us. Our anniversary was on November 13th. Thank you to my brother-in-law Thong who made it possible. He took on the role of parenting and made sure the kids were fed & picked up from school on time. He even waited in the car rider line;) – Thank you Thong!
It has been 5 years since our last trip together and my husband had surprised me with this trip. I love the experiences & memories we got to create together. He also got the kids involved by getting them to create a card for each night we were in Seattle.
Mr. T & I have been so busy the past couple of years trying to stay focus on building our careers & trying to balance family life. Is there such a thing as balancing life? Please share any tips because I haven’t figured it out yet:). He has been attending dental school and works on the weekends. Me? I’m trying to manage family, grow my business, and keep life simple. Keeping life simple is not as easy as it sounds. However, both my husband & I agree that it has been worth all the struggles…I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. He will be graduating this May so please continue to pray for us. It feels so close yet so far away.
This getaway was much needed for the both of us. We had the opportunity to reconnect & talk more about our future plans. We got to share our wants & needs without judgment & had a better understanding of where we are now as individuals. We talked and discussed how we can continue to grow as a couple & how we can become a stronger family unit. Our children love to travel so we can not wait to do more of that after he completes his semester.
We got to do our morning jogs together and walked to our different destinations. If anything was less than 2 miles away, we walked there. It was our way of enjoying the scenery & also train for the marathon coming up in January. We did get to dress up one night to attend mass at Saint James Cathedral & afterwards have dinner at Aerlume. We were invited to bring up the gift offerings for mass which made it extra special. What an honor to be a visitor & carry up the gifts on our Anniversary trip! Thank you God for the blessings! I truly felt the graces & love. My husband & I took the time to pray for those who asked for prayers and intercessions. I also prayed for our marriage and for a deeper understanding of this vocation.
For my creative friends, I got to wear my most recent sewing project, the front zipper skirt.
Mr. T, thank you for everything. Thank you for your dedication to our family & to me. I know we are both trying the best we can for our family, but ultimately, I know we have to rely on God for the graces, blessings, & mercy to overcome any of the challenges. We are almost graduating….ok, he’s almost graduating, but we did it together. It’s almost real! We got this! Love you Mr. T! Love you everyone! Thank you for reading & sharing this big milestone with us. Praying for many many many more years of growing in marriage 😉
