Between our main jobs, freelance jobs, side projects and family and friends... Matt and I go days at time not seeing each other. So sometimes we just have to bring everything to a screeching halt, turn off the phones and have dinner together. And sometimes we even shut Mabel in the guest room so we can concentrate on our conversation without her pushy cold nose ramming into our ankles under the table.
Because if I've learned anything in the past nine years, 'togetherness' doesn't happen accidentally. Whether its kids or jobs or travel... life gets in the way if you let it.
