Barcelona Getaway

A few weeks ago I came up with a plan to take my husband on a long weekend away. The location I picked is Barcelona. With the help of friends, our children will be farmed out to 3 different locations. They will all be in places they thoroughly enjoy, spending time with good friends. We so appreciate their willingness to help. It's been a very long time, actually since before we moved to England over a year and a half ago, that we have been able to have time alone together. I am so excited I could burst.

Since Shawn had to take a couple of days off work for this little adventure, I had to let him in on my little secret. He is just as excited as I am. The kids knew that I have wanted to go to Barcelona and they didn't share the same enthusiasm as me to go and explore this city so they are more than happy to stay back with their friends. They have no idea about what they will be missing. Barcelona is such a cool place. We are leaving a week from today and return on the following Monday.

Can we all say a hearty, Ole'? That's lame, I know, I'm just excited.

Wow! Have an amazing time. You know I love the time we spend together as a family. But in the beginning and in the end we were, are and will be friends most of all. The times my dear husband and I have spent away together are some of the most special of my entire life. Even when we did nothing but sit in a cabin all weekend with our Bibles it was as special as the day we married and those when our children were born. Have fun, fun, fun!

What a blessing to have all the travel arrangements made and can't wait to hear all about it when you return. May God use this time to recharge your marriage and keep you safe in your travels.
