Today I arrived in Washington DC with two wonderful coworkers.
This experience is so much different than my previous work related trips. Years ago, I was lucky enough to travel for work. I went from coast to coast for work. It was exciting and fun. I was even lucky enough to travel overseas to Germany. Those moments were amazing.
What makes this trip different is my family. All my previous trips were easier because I had no attachments. Travel was as easy as packing some stuff, unplugging my coffee maker and leaving.
Now I leave my pregnant wife and sons back home. Luckily for me, I have an amazing spouse who supports me with her positive outlook and strength. That trust and comfort let me enjoy my first night in DC.
My kids have also taken this opportunity to steal my bed.
