I have been a wife and mother for over twenty years. Now I am becoming my husband's lover, too.
We owe it all to my fellow bloggers who gave me the courage to come out to my husband as a spanko.
I do feel like this is a New Beginning for us.

I just want to let everyone know we are home. The trip was wonderful! I enjoyed it all but the talking was super! We spent a lot of time talking about our blogging friends. He reads most of the blogs I read but hasn’t been doing it as long. I spent the time filling him in on some of the stuff I had picked up that he had missed. It was just nice to talk about our favorite activities and share ideas.

The wedding was outside by a lake and beautiful! The bride and groom were so young to me, 20 and 21. But they both seemed so happy. It really made me feel good. The bride’s mother and I are cousins. I was in her wedding 25 years ago. It seemed so strange. I have no idea where the time went.

They had someone coming around with horrible video camera asking everyone to give the bride and groom you best advice for a lasting marriage. I managed to avoid the whole thing. I now know the secret to a long happy marriage. Unfortunately, ‘normal’ society would be horrified if I had tried to tell them!! Like the rest of us, if it is their thing they will come to it in their own way and time.

I have more to tell about the trip, but I’m tired and it will have to wait. It feels good to be home too!


  1. Welcome back,

    Sounds like you had a good time. I wonder what would have happened if you would have stood up and anounced that the *secret* to a happy fulfilled marriage was to start off with a good bare bottom spanking of the bride. :)

    Perhaps Bonnie's brunch question would have had a different answer then.

    Glad you made it home safely, and that trip went so well. Looking forward to reading if you guys had any fun spanking adventurous this weekend.

    Welcome Home!
    Glad you had a wonderful trip. I spent the weekend talking to my man about your blog and others I have been reading. We too have had some terrific discussions. We get an evening to ourselves tonight without the kids...woohoo! I am hoping to have a very tender bum along with a very satisfying romp in the bed...or out of the bed for that matter. *Grins* I am so thankful to have discovered your blog and many others. Thank you so much for sharing. It gives me courage.

  6. I'm glad you are back also. And glad you had a good time. You could have advised the young couple..."don't be afraid to tell your spouse what you want and need." Hmmm where have I heard that one before.


  7. Elis, welcome back dear girl, great that you had such a good time.
    I tend to tell newly weds to be open with each other.
    Warm hugs,

  8. Isn't it amazing how quickly the time flies...there you were a bridemaid to the mother of the bride, fast forward you're attending her daughter's wedding!

    How were you able to avoid the videographer, they can be relentless! I tend to use the "don't make eye contact method."

    I'm glad you and Nick had a good time and that you made it home safely.

    **Big Hugs**

  9. Welcome home ! Glad you had fun ! You never know about the wedding advice -- maybe they are already into it, young as they are !
    Hope you have a good week,
    Anne Elizabeth

    Hiya Elis,

    I am SO glad that you're back... I really missed you! Being without Cassie is tough but losing two of you for a while was exponentially tougher... I'm so glad you had such a wonderful time and all that talking can only bring you even closer!!

    Big hugs!

    I'm so glad your home and made it back safely.

    Did you go anywhere interesting on the way, say a leather shop??? More importantly, did you BUY anything interesting???

    Just wondering....


  12. Brian,
    You might be right. Nick would not have been happy if I had given my suggestions!

    There are a lot of older couple I would like to tell too!

    Todd & Suzy,
    I was a pretty good time!!

    I felt like I was in a time warp during the whole wedding!

    Anne Elizabeth,
    They sure looked happy enough to be spankos!

    I will be glad when Cassie is back!! And yes all that talking was great!

    Good question, right to the point. Got to go write you answer now!

    Elis Jo!!! Don't you walk away when I'm talking to you!!

    Okay, I'm playing again... but seriously enquiring minds want to know... ummm... that would be me and everyone else... so this answer's gonna be a post, right?
