Hello Darling Weekly readers! I hope this issue provides you with some great Friday reading!

A couple weeks ago I wrote about my first adult trip away from my son...well we are back and I am here to report! I had a...FABULOUS time!!! My husband and I were in the Dominican Republic for 5 days. We left our 18 month old with our parents. I was extremely nervous to leave my sweet boy but like many people told me, he was just fine. He had a great time with my mother and playing with his cousin. He enjoyed going to the park with my in-laws and both reported he slept like a baby each night!

My husband and I enjoyed the sun and the sand. We traveled to celebrate a friend's wedding in the Dominican. There were very little plans, other than the wedding on Saturday. We enjoyed a lot of time by the pool and took walks on the beach. I read a book, a great book--I might add, for the first time since my son was born, I took extra long showers, I had several cocktails each day, I put my phone down for hours at a time, and I didn't even pay attention to the time. This special time was needed by both of us. Mommies and daddies need to give them time OFF and take a break...it is good for everyone, even the kids!

Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy Issue #33!
