Bobby is fortunate to have a job that allows him to travel in style on a regular basis. Over the last five years he's been to New York, Chicago, D.C., Vegas, and Miami more times than I could possibly count.
I'm always sad to see him go but we're believers that healthy doses of time apart make our relationship stronger. Which is why I always make sure to savor the few days each month that I rule the roost.
Today I baked banana bread for lunch and ate hot chocolate ganache straight from the saucepan with my finger (ouch).
I organized old photographs and had a Dave Matthews Band dance party in the bedroom. Later I'll watch Dancing With the Stars and paint my toenails in bed. Low-key, that's how I like to spend my "me-time."
Bobby will call after dinner and we'll share the details of the day and discuss what happened in the news. When I hang up and realize I'm going to sleep alone, I'll miss him immensely... But then I'll think of the banana bread & ganache sauce waiting for me downstairs and I'll get over it. ;)
(And I'm sure Bobby is somewhere in D.C. right now watching the History Channel in the dark, thanking God that I'm not there to snap a lamp on and remind him of how I'm slowly going blind.)
For my fellow bakers out there, here's the decadent banana bread I made this morning. Share it with your family or save it for those special days when you're home alone. ;)
