Space cakes might be interesting for my marriage

The last time my husband and I went away alone on a trip together was four years ago to the Isle of Skye.

In December.

We had a blast.

It was one of the best trips I've had with him.

At the time, my youngest was still a baby, I was still breastfeeding, and I was full-on bewbs deep in mummyland.

Going away with my hubby with no kids for 4 days sounded so alien to me.

Spending time with him alone, without the kids screaming and yelling, "Mummy! Mummy!" was so transformative!


What happened on this trip was unexpected.

Being able to wake up whenever, decide what to do whenever, and to eat whatever, whenever was so liberating.

It actually helped rekindle my love for my husband.

The light was shown onto him and revealed to me, "Oh! THIS is the guy you married! That's HIM!"

Yeah. It's been a while.

This week we're finally going away together again.

I. Am. So. Looking. Forward. To. It.

This time it's in Amsterdam.

When I tell people where I'm going, they tell me to take it easy on the space cakes.


That'll be something new. 

Because I've never been to Amsterdam before.

This whole trip is just what my husband and I need to do a marriage [software] update!

Somehow when we go away together, I feel young again.

The fun and flirty me kicks in, and I just feel like it's back when we first met.

That's so important in a marriage, because we all know that long-term relationships are damn hard.

Taking action and creating love, fun, and passion in my relationship is super important to me, my health, my happiness, and my life.

When I feel beautiful and in love with my husband, my fun and free femininity comes out. 

Things just HAPPEN. 

Like, amazing things.

Wonderful things.

That's why I have to do this.

It's a necessity for me in my life.

It fuels me and brings me joy, and helps me reset all my purpose in life and why I do what I do for myself, my kids, my husband, my family, and the people I adjust in my practice.

All of it.

So, have a great week. 

Book yourself in for a fabulous massage while I'm gone!

The practice is still open and happy to help you relax with Darren and Ana, my extraordinary massage therapists!

See you on Saturday the 25th when I return!
