Hubby and I went home to Kentucky for the week and are currently getting ready to leave the hotel we stopped at last night on our way back to Virginia...It's amazing the conversations that happen when you are trapped in a car with someone you love for 7 straight hours.   We talked about future plans, career trajectories, and more and I think we've got a better idea about what we want our 5 year plan to look like.  We both miss home and our friends and family a ton so it was great getting to see them and refill our cups to get us through until we see them again at christmas time.

The written word

Sometimes writing a letter is more effective at expressing emotion than speaking with someone.  It gives you a clear way to articulate feelings that are messy and hard to sort out in a more organized and coherent manner.  
I just wrote my husband a 6 page letter about some of my personal emit hints surrounding our infertility process.  It's not pretty.  Parts are barely even legible.  But I really think when he reads it tomorrow we will be able to talk through it much better than if I just started w conversation. Especially since I'm hard to understand when I ugly cry ... 

So tomorrow might be an interesting day in this modern traditions household. 

Wish me luck.
