We actually stayed in Charlotte this weekend.
No day trips or anything.
It doesn't happen often but when it does it's nice.
Earlier in the week SIL Robyn texted me about scheduling a dinner and night out just the four of us.
Me, Brad, her and Jeff(Brad's brother).
I jumped at the chance because the four us rarely get out and do something just 'us'.
So Saturday night we had a date night.
Especially since we don't really 'go out' that much anymore.
We prefer cooking and having people over or vice-versa.
The night out had me thinking about how great it is to have such a good relationship with my brother and sister-in-law.
There is absolutely NO drama!
I say that because my ex-sister-in-law, my brother’s ex-wife, was a piece of work.
Only, 3-years older than me she was one of those people who was nice to my face but would talk sh-t behind my back.
Not sure why she disliked me so much.
Oh, wait I do.
I won't get into that.
Never good though.
Especially when kids are involved.
It's different this time around.
Robyn is my age and just as nice as they come..
She’s always thinking of others, not to mention a ton of fun to hang out with!
She’s supportive, understanding and treasures family just as I do.
Despite Brad and his brother being 4 ½ years apart they are pretty tight too.
That’s not always the case with family.
My entire life all I've ever heard from my Mother is how you marry the family.
Starting at a VERY young age she would tell me.
"You meet that family! Because you marry them too!"
I feel so blessed to have married into a great group of people.
What’s your relationship like with your siblings and/or their significant others?
Again, I'm one lucky gal and can't wait for another night out just the four of us.
