Another Relationship “Milestone”

So today is the start of an 8-day, 7 night vacation adventure with CBG and kids. My girls will be there for the entire time. CBG’s kids will be around for a great deal of the time as well.

It’s going to be interesting to say the least.

Once upon a time I would have been a little scared about spending that much time with him. I would have seen it as this huge “test” of our relationship. I would have spent a week obsessing and overthinking about it. And well, I’m just not doing that this time around.  Sure, I’m a little nervous about how it’s all going to go – four kids, two adults and who knows what challenges that might get thrown our way.

I’m a little nervous, but certainly not terrified.

I see this as simply another milestone in our relationship – another step toward building the life together that we ultimately want.

Life, my friends, is good.

  3. That is AWESOME. Have a blast, you both deserve it!!

  4. Very similar to the vacation that Rascal and I went on in July, this will be fun AND interesting. Of course, there will be bumps… don’t be surprised. Understand them and giggle, a little, at yourself. You put 6 people who don’t normally spend time together in a room, things are gonna be a challenge.

    Don’t sweat it. Stay present with your feelings and communicate honestly. You guys can handle anything as long as you’re talking.

    Most importantly, stay present and HAVE FUN!

  5. I hope you all have a wonderful time. Relax and enjoy!

  6. WOW! I can’t help but think this will be a terrific time for all!

  8. Yay, that life is good!!! Have a great time!!

  9. I hope your vacation goes GREAT! It’ll definitely tell you a lot about your relationship.

  10. I hope it is going great.
