We're Back!

We returned Monday night after 12 days away from our little love. I knew it would be hard to be apart for so long but I had no idea how my heart would literally ache to see him and hold him! Towards the end of the trip I felt a physical void - I need my baby! That said, we did not spend our precious alone time pining away for Liam... we made the most of our time by waking up late, holding hands as we roamed the streets of Paris, and going to late dinners that were not rushed. It was so good for our relationship - we needed a rejuvenation.

Oh and Justin's paper went wonderfully at the conference and was very well received! His doctoral commencement was incredibly impressive, too. I am so happy we made the trip, I think it made us realize that our time in Europe is not over - if the opportunity presents itself, we would go back in a heartbeat.

A few favorite snaps:

The gardens outside Notre Dame

Apparently the pinot made him angry!

Anxiously waiting entrance to the Louvre! (we went on the first Sunday of the month so it was free! Yes!)

The Tower at night

What's up Doc?

Proud wifey!

Dear friends Jen & Kara (fellow members of the missing parent's club :-( )

Glendalough on a lovely day with lovely people!


  1. I know how hard it is to be away from your kids for that long, but so glad you got to enjoy some time together! Congrats to your husband!

  2. I am so happy you guys had a great trip. It was wonderful to see you, and counting the days until we see each other again (hopefully not too long). Great pictures...I love the one of you and J in his robes and also the one of me you and Jen. Might have to print that one and frame it. Love you, girl, and give that Me-am a hug from Auntie Kara.

  3. Glad you had such a great time! Your pictures are beautiful! Congrats to J!
