This last week my husband and I made the trek back to Oregon (where we used to live) for a board meeting and a dental checkup (we refuse to give up our old dentist, I would adopt him if I could). We took an extra day and made time just for the two of us (we included a mad dash for the beach, the Oregon coast is unbelievably beautiful any time of the year).
It’s a bit of a trick, but it’s a good thing to look for moments you can steal away with your husband. If you travel, try to create a mini-vacation before or after. If you are doing errands together, stop for a meal or a treat. If you have an appointment to keep, plan to enjoy a nearby spot together (a lovely park, your favorite bookstore, etc.).
We hit the sunny beaches where we occupy ourselves keeping the sun off our skin, the saltwater off our bodies, and the sand out of our belongings. Erma Bombeck
