Although I’m excited about going home for Thanksgiving, I’m also sad that I will not be with Brian. This weekend will be our third time being away from each other this year. It is only for a couple of days, but it feels like it is going to be forever. I’m going to have to get used to being away from him since we will continue to take our separate trips with friends and families. I just love that we both feel the same way about being away from one another. Today I told him that it is really hard for me to leave him this weekend. I was thrilled when he told that he feels the same way and asked what are we going to do about it. Well that started a new and well needed discussion. I think it is very important to talk about things before you get married so you will know what to expect before saying “I do”.
How do we spend time with our families and still see each other during holidays? Once we get married, we will be together for holidays and just rotate Thanksgiving and Christmas with our families. So if we go to my family’s house for Thanksgiving, we will spend Christmas at his family house and vice versa. I guess the same will go for Memorial Day and 4th of July. We haven’t gotten that far yet. Now Labor Day will have to be at our house or some ravish vacation spot since my birthday normally falls close to Labor Day (and we all know that we have to do it big for my birthday). Really it doesn’t matter where we spend holidays or any other day just as long as we are together every day. We hug and kiss (quick peck; nothing like that) every time we see each other. I don’t care if I have to run to the store for about 15 minutes, we still hug and kiss when I return. If he is upstairs and then come down stairs, we hug and kiss. I couldn’t imagine not being able to see him for a few days and I couldn’t imagine not getting my hug and kiss from him at least once a day. I just hope the desire we have to see each other every day last forever!
