I always feel sort of sad after visitors leave. After a fun-filled weekend of conversation and laughter, our apartment just feels empty. And quiet. Quiet except for Alice, of course. I think that I so look forward to having guests in town that, when they leave, I feel a bit lonely. Like now I need something else to anticipate. Something else to look forward to.
So to help squash those lonesome feelings, Alice and I are having lunch with another first-time mom and her adorable baby boy this afternoon. A delicious lunch, some mommy talk and an afternoon beer will certainly help me feel better.
And then I can start looking forward to and anticipating my sister coming to visit in just a few short weeks!
Alice and I can hardly wait.

Cute picture of Alice and Grandpa Glen. He is looking more like his dad (Greatgrandpa Glen). Hope Alice had a great time getting to know her name sake. There is always a bit of a let down after visitors leave. Especially since you live on the east coast and they live on the west coast. Maybe sometime in your future, you will get a chance to move closer to family. xoxoReplyDelete
YEAH!!! KPT is coming to visit!! Alice is adorable, and I love when you put up pictures of her!! I hope you end up staying in Boston for a while... we are looking at Portland Maine and would be SO close to you guys!!ReplyDelete
I agree. It took several weeks for me to adjust after saying goodbye to my friends and family in the united states.ReplyDelete
I keep begging people to visit me! The cost is a bit prohibitive, though.
I hope you had fun on your mommy-date! :)
