Farewell, Auntie Natalie!

We just spent our last morning with Small Human's Auntie Natalie, my sister-in-law. Thank you for visiting us, and for helping out so much with your crazy little monster nephew. That was the first time Brendan and I have had any help at home with a toddler for almost a full week, and I have to admit that it was a huge relief! So that's what it's like to live near family, it's kind of amazing.

I was able to go get my hair cut and then meet my husband for a nice dinner afterward this weekend. It was so weird, kinda like back when we were still dating in Toronto, except almost like it was a foreign concept somehow. That's when I realized how much I missed my husband. We're always so busy now, but it's important to take the time to really spend with just each other. This is something we've known (duh) but never practice (derp).

Then yesterday, I was able to go get my hair blown out at one of those fancy blowdry bars, which I haven't done since my birthday last year. What a treat! I felt so happy and pampered, and glad that my friend Robyn had suggested it. I won't have to worry about the state of my hair for a week, which means a lot to a busy mum.

Seriously, this past week I have been a lady of leisure but I've got to come back down to reality. Thank you Natalie! Be careful, have fun, and go on lots of adventures in Asia for us!
