Red & White

About a month ago, M. and I went away for the weekend.

I had just started my Lu.pron and this cycle, and we wanted a chance to reconnect before the craziness would start. We didn't go far, just a few hours north, where all we had planned was where we were staying, visiting a few wineries, and hanging out.

It was just what we needed.

Red & White

The weather was beautiful, and we spent the first afternoon visiting wineries. At my favorite winery, we even bought a glass of wine each and some cheese and crackers, went outside and spent some time overlooking Lake Erie in the distance. The glass of white is mine and was a light, crisp wine called "Delaware". M.'s glass is a sweet, sweet red called, "Cat Rouge", that he just loved.

Walk around Chautauqua

We spent time just talking. Talking without being interrupted. Walking the grounds, where we stayed, just enjoying each others company. We took a nap, if we were tired. We saw a movie that wasn't G rated.

There was no rush, no distractions, just us.

Honestly, I can say that it was the first time, in at least a year, that I didn't have my infertility at the forefront of my mind.

Of course, we talked about the cycle a little...

BUT for a weekend, I didn't feel pressure. I didn't worry about the "what ifs".

I just enjoyed my husband and reconnected.
