I’m an independent woman. Spent years before meeting my husband and kids being self-sufficient traipsing about the world, taking care of my house, and comfortable being on my own. I’m still very independent and my husband would never dream of calling me a wallflower. But it is amazing when you find the love of your life and two amazing children how things change. I have a wonderful home that is filled with love and laughter.
My husband is now on his way back from a 10 day business trip. I don’t like it when he travels, not because I begrudge him for his job. But because it isn’t home when he’s not here. I feel like I’m rattling round our big house. It loses it’s warmth. Luckily I had the kids this week so it was only last week the major rattling was occurring. Kids keep you on your toes!
There is a lot of anticipation today as we get things ready. He will get quite the homecoming with me, the kids, and two extremely excited dogs leaping about trying to lick him. Only our cat will be hiding.
Our dogs will look out the window a lot but this pic kind of represents how we are feeling waiting for him to come home.
So in a few hours our home will be complete again. 🙂
I know exactly how you feel. I am lucky for the next 2 weeks I have my daughter-in-law and my grandson here. My husband and I are enjoying it immensely!
Oh good! 🙂
Beautiful, Virginia! The photo is very touching. 😀
They are sweet and nutty dogs. 🙂
A beautifully profound post!

Love that quote.
I completely understand. And, it’s annoying, isn’t it?!! I remember after marrying, I didn’t like sleeping in the house by myself. Why???,,, I”d done it on my own for so long! But, it’s a good thing. Love your sweet dogs!
They were leaping about like idiots when he got in the house. It was hilarious!
Nice sentiments. Have a good time when you’re whole again.
It’s wonderful having him home. 🙂
I hope you all shared a wonderful homecoming.
It’s been a lovely weekend. 🙂
