Off to Chicago to visit my sis & her family. Fun times, especially because Xing Fu is coming too--our first plane trip together! Uh huh, we're getting away from it all--right to 40 degree weather! WooHoo! This was supposed to be a trip taken earlier in the season so we could go sailing with my sis & her husband but as usual, timing is everything...even so, looking forward to a weekend with my sis in her stomping grounds & time away with my guy. I have mentioned in the past how important I think getting away as a couple is important--often we've gone to the beach together for a weekend--this is a bit of a departure for us--heh--I think a good one. I often think that we just don't have a lot of "us" time & I feel it is vitally important to build that in on occasion. I sent an email to Xing Fu after we'd had a little back & forth about scheduling. It is truly what I feel:
already have such limited time during the week & even some weekends
that it is often a press to simply have "us" time. One reason that
this weekend will be nice for that--I am a very
firm believer that a successful relationship must have times where the
focus is solely on the relationship & very little else if at all
And while I'm away it will be my 3rd year "blogoversary"--hopefully I will get a chance to send a message out into the blogosphere from Chi-town.
