Buddy and I try to get out and away for the day on occasion. We head out early in the morning and pick a direction and head out. Today we went with going north.
Now yes getting away from our surrounding is great and a change of scenery always does the soul good. Today we did enjoy some new and interesting sites. Beautiful place and meeting nice people. That isn't however isn't what I enjoy the most about these trips.
I enjoy spending the time with my husband. We seem to talk more when we do this and we talk about anything and everything. It can be anything from politics to personal issues and experiences that we haven't had a chance to discuss at any great length going about our day to day lives.
Don't get me wrong when he gets home from work I ask him about his day and he fills me in on what happened and he asks me what's been going on with me but usually there are other things that have to be attended to or something comes along and interrupts us so these trips allow us to just shut the rest of the world out.
We both come home tired but somehow feeling lighter. Even if you don't have the time for an extended vacation or the money for that matter try to take that one day every now and then and go discover something new, like one another.
And you thought I was going to be my usual smart ass self. Fooled you.
