In 2006, we attended our first couples’ retreat in Caliraya. We were married for almost 2 years then, and Danae was 10 months old. The retreat was entitled Just the Two of Us, but  like I always say, in true Lucero fashion, it became JUST THE THREE OF US.

Last year, 2010, we attended the first Couples’ Getaway of Victory Alabang (click here for more about it) in Summit Ridge, Tagaytay. It was our second couples’ retreat. We were almost 6 years married then, and Danae was almost 5, while Noelle was 1 year & 9 months old. Our Couples’ Getaway, again in true Lucero fashion, became the FAMILY GETAWAY, plus 1 helper.

Couples’ Getaway 2011 just concluded this weekend, and though it was just an overnight retreat, I am very pleased to say that it was indeed a COUPLES’ GETAWAY! Just me and King, at looooooooooooong last. Just a time for relaxing, for fun, for learning, for fellowship. How refreshing, especially after all that has happened. We needed this. I NEEDED THIS. I think I expressed that on the dance floor during 80s night. hahahaha.

I thank God for King’s parents who gladly took the girls for us, for the girls’ aunts, uncles & cousins who love them very much. It made it easier to leave them, knowing that they would be in good and able hands. As you may know, this is only the 2nd time that we have left the girls for more than a day. The first was when King was hospitalized.

Tonight, we pick them up, and start getting ready for another trip this week. We’re off to celebrate Danae’s 6th birthday! Woohoo!!! 🙂

THANK YOU PTR CHICO & MARYANNE. YOU ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED. YOU DID ANOTHER AMAZING JOB THIS YEAR!:)
