Last month, my husband and I took our first kid-free vacation in the history of our six years of marriage.
And although things didn’t go down as romantically and perfectly as I had envisioned them in my head, the trip was definitely an eye-opener for me.
For the first time in a really long time, I was alone for huge amounts of time with my husband. Days upon days stretched out endlessly before us, and instead of feeling unencumbered without the constraints of our three young children, I realized I was feeling slightly … well, panicked.
