We had a lovely weekend. We helped friends move, had friends over, and spent a good portion of yesterday in pajamas just having some much needed quiet family time.
My favorite moments, though, all involved playing gin rummy with Brad. We started to try to teach the kiddos, but they quickly lost interest. Brad and I, however, had a blast. We even played more after they went to bed last night.
It's in those very mundane moments when he and I are just hanging out that I look forward to empty nest a bit. That might be an overstatement, but I at least mind it less. I have a feeling he and I will just have a different set of adventures and a new normal, and I also know that will be pretty amazing, too.
