Crazy Couple of Weeks...

Dear all,

Greetings! I hope you didn't think we fell off the face of the earth. These past couple of weeks have been a challenging one.

Vince has been pretty much away for the past couple of weeks. He was in London two weeks ago helping plan out a youth conference and then this past week he was in the Netherlands for work. For those of you who think the charm and delight of travel is amazing... well, it is. But it is really difficult when you have someone(s) who are waiting anxiously for your return.

It's also tough when you are traveling and you don't have someone to share the beauty of the moments with.

You all know what I am talking about.

We were talking the other day and we remembered the times we traveled to different locations (before we were together) and we both said to our respective selves at the time, "This place is beautiful/breathtaking/wonderful/etc., but it would be so much more when you have some one to share it with."

When Vince was in Amsterdam this past weekend all he wanted to do was call and tell me how beautiful the city was.

(side note: He was in the Redlight District and it was very interesting for him to see women pent up in windows and to smell marijuana up and down the streets.)

The thing is that when you spend so much time with a person, a person you go to sleep with and wake up next to, its weird when you aren't around that person for a while. It's like you are not entirely whole. Like that person now contains a part of you and you of that person.

Thoughts on this?


  1. For me, the best thing about being married is having someone to talk to before going to sleep. Giggling in bed while talking about the mishaps of the day is priceless. I know exactly what you mean. Hm, and I think because you've become the best of friends (aside from being a married couple), you've been (at least partly) living your life through each other. And I think, it can't get any better than that. :)
    I'm loving your blog! Ich vermisse euch!

  2. It's funny because I just had that in mind when I was going around London two weeks ago. Let's just see the next time that I will be going there :) - Please tell Eli that Tito Kuya Ralph is excited to see him
