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.
