Summer in Door County

Wine, beaches, quaint towns, orchards and cherries…summer in Door County allows us to unplug and welcome a slower pace. Hubster and I take an annual vacation together to reconnect, away from the demands of special needs parenting.

Myth vs Reality: What my husband does during a weekend alone #FlavorYourSummer #ad

Every once in a while, the kids and I go visit family for the weekend and we leave my husband to his own devices. I always wonder what he does during a weekend alone. My elusive weekend alone would include sleeping, running, cooking whatever I wanted and watching marathons of my favorite TV show. But what does Hubster do? I knew that what I envisioned him doing was probably incorrect, but I never realized how unrealistic I was until I asked. Let’s play a little myth vs. reality. What does my husband really do during a weekend alone?
