I’m going on vacation with my mom and my daughter. Leaving my husband behind strengthens our relationship.

  • My husband and I work from home and see each other all the time.
  • Traveling without it allows us to explore ourselves and our needs.
  • Our relationship is strong, and being away from each other gives us the rest we need.

In November 2021 I spent an amazing month in Florence with my then 3 year old daughter. And my mom. It was incredible. We went to museums and art galleries, we ate our fill frozen and pizza, and we enjoyed wandering around, exploring in our own way, without any schedule or needing to answer to anyone. While I was on vacation, my husband was home alone.

My husband and I work from home, and our daughter is not in school yet. So we are full-time stay-at-home parents who also run businesses from our home offices. That’s why we’re together all the time, literally. We also live in the country which can be lonely but it works for us as we like to have space and privacy. During the pandemic we were constantly indoors with no escape.

I wanted to get out for a break, from home life, work and everyday life.

My husband doesn’t like to travel.

My husband isn’t the biggest fan of travel, at least not the kind I like, for the amount of time I do. I love going out for a month to immerse myself in wherever I go; I think this gives me and my daughter time to settle in and make the most of our free time. My husband enjoys being at home in the country and working, taking care of our dogs and feeling at peace.

This gives us the opportunity to be as each one sees fit. For a month I don’t have to check with my husband to see if he wants to go out to dinner, if my Zoom meeting will interfere with his schedule, or if I’m writing in the middle of the night when I can’t. sleep disturbs him. Also, my husband can enjoy his time on his own terms without always having to answer me.

It works for us because our marriage is strong.

Some people may think that it is strange that I am leaving without my husband. But sometimes we go on vacation for long weekends, usually to the beach or a resort, where everyone has a break and everything is arranged. We like that kind of shorter vacation.

My vacations with my daughter and my mom work because our marriage is stable and based on love, respect, and trust. We love each other more than anything, but these holidays give us a good rest. We also talk every day when we’re apart, most of the time via video, so we can connect.

Also, spending time apart makes us appreciate each other even more. When we come together as a family, we are so happy, we have enjoyed our time apart, but it is as if we have never been apart.
