amsterdam, family, weekend

{Bye, Mama}

Well, that’s it. My mom’s two-week trip has come to an end. I dropped her off at the airport this morning and it was really, really hard. Harder than I was expecting. I was holding back tears as I took the train into work. Then as soon as I walked into the office I couldn’t hold back anymore and a rush of tears and hopeless sighs came flooding out. It was more than a bit embarrassing, but what can I say? I just can’t believe that her long anticipated trip is over and I won’t see her again for four months. I think tonight I’m going to take a bubble bath and read my new book. Hope that will help cheer me up.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It’s kind of ridiculous (and intimidating) how many photos I have to share with you from the last few weeks. I can’t wait to go through them all and get them up on the blog!

  1. This breaks my heart! I'm sure you'll feel better once you look through all of your photos again, and are reminded of the amazing time you two just had! Can't wait to see the photos!

  2. That is such an adorable photo of you and your Mom, that's awesome she was able to come visit you! My parents are coming to visit this weekend, and it's like I already know that the time is going to fly by…it's definitely hard being away from family, time together is NEVER long enough!

  3. Aww I totally understand that feeling! When my parents left after their visit I had a really hard time. Try to remember all the new and fun memories you made together in your new home and before you know it you'll be seeing your mom again 🙂

  4. That is such a lovely photo of you two 🙂 Goodbyes are so hard but hopefully the time will fly by until you see your mum again and in the meantime, the bath and new book sound like a great idea. Can't wait to see your photos!

  5. I'm so sorry your Mom is going back! I know how difficult it is to say goodbye to family when you already see so little of them :/ I'm glad you guys had an amazing time and I can't wait to see all the pics!


  6. Just think of all the fun you had together! I'm lucky enough that my mom visits Amsterdam often for work but there's always a tinge of heartbreak when she leaves. Since mothers remind us so much of home it's just one of those little things that makes the distance suddenly feel huge.

  7. I am sorry–I know it sucks.

    A bubble bath and a book sounds like a good plan though–and maybe add a bar of chocolate 🙂

  8. These are really very memorable moments of your life as you spent a quality time with your moma…I wish she would had been there for more time but still I am so pleased to see your love for here.. 🙂
