For the first time ever (well, except to have Emily) Dave and I were away from our children. Dave's cousin got married outside of Boston and my wonderful, amazing, kid-less friend watched Nolan and Emily for 23 hours.
Dave and I were excited about this night- we both bought new clothes, I got new jewels and shoes and we felt like a million bucks. It was fun, a nice marriage (see what I did there?) of date-night and family time. We enjoyed a nice meal, some wine and a big giant hotel bed! It was really wonderful. And so unbelievably special to have an opportunity to get away. I woke up panicky wondering how Emily was doing (she was fine). Apparently Nolan wasn't behaving great this morning but that's typical. There's a strange satisfaction of having Nolan act up for others- almost to show that I'm not just making it all up. He's a handful, that's for sure. Regardless, I know Ariana could handle anything he threw at her and I am so grateful for her willingness to watch them so we could get away.
|Of course after being so excited about my dress/accessory combo Dave's Aunt arrived wearing the EXACT same dress. We both looked stunning and had a great time!|
