I have to use this #mcm as an excuse to brag on this guy (and I'm sure he'll hate this post πŸ˜‡) ... I went away for 8 days and you want to know how many times he complained? ZERO. Zero, guys. I could seriously learn a thing or two from him (I may or may not pout a lot more when he has work dinners or trips). He handled everything like the amazing parent he is while I was away and never once made me feel guilty or like I "owed" him. Even when he was left behind taking care of two kids and I was calling him bawling because I missed home, instead of being totally annoyed he was totally compassionate and supportive. I truly do not know how I got so lucky, but I feel so, so grateful for this guy. Also, just a little cherry on top ... He recently got an amazing and well-deserved promotion at work!! I couldn't be prouder or more in love with you @cdenfeld. Can't wait to be reunited tonight! (As luck would have it he had to leave Sunday for a quick biz trip!). ❀️

Made it home late last night after being en route for 23 long hours. Quickly showered and changed then snuck into James' room for snuggles (Elodie specifically requested I not wake her. Thanks, babe, love you too πŸ˜‚). Part of me felt really guilty to wake him, but the other part couldn't possibly go to bed without hugging at least one of my babies. Well, as luck would have it when I went in I found he had leaked through his diaper and soaked through his PJs and sleepsack! To my delight I got to turn the lamp on, get him in an all new change of clothes and then rock him back to sleep. Such a mundane task would surely not have made me so INSANELY happy just a week prior ... So I guess it's true what they say: Absence makes the heart grow fonder. And to think, I was pretty sure my heart couldn't possibly be fonder of my two babies than it already was ❀️

Tot ziens, Nederlands! What a trip! Honestly it feels like I've been gone a million years, but it sure has been a fun million years πŸ˜›After this trip I have so much to say about leaving your kiddos and doing something like this. I feel a blog post brewing! But for now I'll focus on my long journey home. One thing is for sure, a small piece of my heart is being left behind in this beautiful country, as it has since I first stepped foot in it in 2009 for my first trip πŸ’›

When you keep watching your own Instagram story over and over because you can't believe you actually had the day you had. Holy dreamy guys!! I keep pinching myself! Back in The Hague for one more sleep before I start the long journey home TO MY BABIES!!!! Omg I am so excited! ❀️

As Audrey Hepburn would say ... Paris is always a good idea. One last meal before we head back to the Netherlands. It has been a perfectly Parisian weekend full of memories I'll treasure forever and ever! {see more of our day in my stories πŸ’™}

What a treat to hop the train to Paris this morning and spend the day meandering the streets, eating Nutella crepes and laughing so hard we came reallll close to peeing ourselves (any other mamas relate?! πŸ˜‚). It's not easy leaving your kids behind (especially when you're a nursing mama -- you rock @jeanelleteves!!), but uninterrupted conversation and really soaking up the things we love to do remind us it is so good for us. Sweet texts from the dads at home holding down the fort don't hurt either. So grateful for this friendship and this time together in this magical city βœ¨πŸ’“πŸ‘―

Lucked out with a crisp, sunny day today! Bikes, canals, adorable shops and restaurants ... The Hague is like a cute mini Amsterdam 😍

I wonder if this place will ever stop feeling like home. I've been daydreaming this whole trip of bringing the kids one day. I can't wait to show them around and tell them all about the life of adventure their daddy and I lived here when we were newlyweds ❀️

Just another beautiful day in Holland! πŸŒ§πŸŒ¬β˜”οΈ Such a fun one brunching with @jenjenp, then spending the day in The Hague with @jeanelleteves and her sweet Elena baby! P.S. Thanks for all of your sweet messages after my sad insta story last night! Being away from the fam is such a treat and yet so very hard. Last night was tough, but today was a new day and I am counting down to kissing Corey and my babies next week πŸ’— Jeans, boots, hat and bag linked up here πŸ‘‰πŸΌ http://liketk.it/2sICe #liketkit @liketoknow.it

So, I woke up this morning and looked at my phone and it said 8:50AM. {I went to bed at 8:20PM!!} I kept blinking over and over and looking so hard at the time thinking that couldn't be right. I slept 12.5 hours and haven't slept past 8AM in YEARS! And then the best part ever: I pulled back the curtains and the sun was SHINING! Spent the morning visiting our old place here and having breakfast by myself at one of our old favs. So many feels!! {See more in my stories!} Now getting ready to meet friends in the Jordaan for tea/wine/dinner/GIRL TALKKKK! Can't wait! #lizinamsterdam

The Netherlands welcomed me with buckets and buckets of rain today - yay! 😝We haven't lived in Amsterdam for four years and yet the moment I touched down at Schipol Airport and boarded the train the familiar sights, sounds and smells smacked me in the face and brought a crazy wave of nostalgia over me. It's like no time had passed at all -- like we'd never left. Being here without Corey is more than a little weird, but I am trying my darnest to spend the next week savoring this time with great friends in one of my favorite places in the world {even though I am missing the fam so much it physically hurts. oh,
motherhood πŸ’—}

Do you ever feel so many feels that you feel... numb? Or like you just don't have the right words? I've been quieter than usual on here the last few weeks. Between my personal #firstworldproblems and the hurricanes, floods and fires that have been devastating much of my state, country and abroad, I just haven't felt much like saying much.... My thoughts and prayers go out to those facing hardship πŸ’™ Off to enjoy a slow, quiet Saturday with my family before I head to Amsterdam tomorrow.
