My wife had decided to go to a family reunion. She spent a month with family and visiting friends before making her own cross country trip. Now she was back and we had time to spend together.
With both of us being in school together we had been together a lot of time without spending time together. Out of the 9 years we have been married, 8 of those years were spent with both of us in school between Bachelors and Masters degrees.
Now we had every evening together, no homework, no projects, and no idea what to do with our time. In some senses we have to get to know each other again in a new context. Being away from each other for a month just accentuated being back together.
Both of us feel that after working on our brains so much we need to devote more time to working on other parts of us such as our talents and relationships. Our relationship with each other fits right into that category.
