Just What the Doctor Ordered... For Once!

...or what I ordered - the weekend away with my best friend - just her and I, no husband and she did not bring her 1 1/2 year old.

It was marvelous! So needed. Everyone needs to remember how important time like that is. Sure, there was some talk of her child and some talk of my infertility but just a part of the conversation, not the entire conversation.

Lately, when we've been catching up quickly by phone it's her saying "oh, listen to what cute thing he did" or me saying "here's the latest on my infertility yo-yo". It got to be too much - I'm sure from both sides.

We laughed, talked about all kinds of life stuff including past, present, future, random thoughts, dreams - basically everything best friends talk about.

We used to go on vacations - a week somewhere when we were single & in our 20s, then it became a few days and in a group situation with husbands, and then it became none since her child. Even though it was just a weekend, we both felt like we were worlds away... and back in our friendship.

Just what I ordered and what everyone should order! Get back to that place, where the real, whole you can come out...

Some peaceful pics from our trip:


  1. yay for friends! =) glad you also had a great weekend! Pics look beautiful! You'll have to pre-schedule these periodically to keep the sanity! =)

  2. ooh it looks so pretty! I am glad you had fun reconnecting with a friend.

  3. So glad you had a wonderful time with your BFF! I'm sure it was just as wonderful for her as it was for you.

  4. glad you had a great time. I love how you said, "Get back to that place, where the real, whole you can come out..." we so often forget that in this infertile world. Thanks for reminding me of that.

  5. I'm so glad for you!
    I hope my vacation with my friend at the end of August will have the same effect.

  6. Girl I am so glad for you... Lord knows I need a vaca soon:) I'm sure that you're thankful that she didnt' bring her little one--- it would have changed the tone of the whole trip but it all worked out perfectly--- I hope you're having a good weekend and getting some much needed rest:) Love ya friend!
