This feels like a very realistic premise - a challenge to their marriage that almost certainly isn't fatal but that a healthy couple needs to deal with, and something that they legitimately haven't had the opportunity to face before.
Author's Response: Thanks! I appreciate the feedback and insight. :) It's really nice to be writing again, so hopefully I can get a new chapter up soon!

I can always use more fluff in my life and your chapter delivered! The callback to Andy in the sumo suit was great. I'm very curious where you're taking this story and I'm excited to read more.
Author's Response: Yay fluff! It's getting me through this time for sure, and I'm glad it could brighten your day. :)

I haven't read a ton of fics about life for Jim and Pam in Austin, but I really like your realistic take on their marriage. I know what it's like to be in a demanding job and my partner and I have similar struggles. What I'm really enjoying about your story is that Jim and Pam communicate and find a solution before it becomes a bigger problem in their relationship. Relationship goals, for sure :)
Author's Response: What kind feedback, thank you! I appreciate you taking the time to send such a thoughtful response. I am hoping to have a new chapter up soon. :)

Welcome back! This is all very cute and fluffy. Kind had an inkling of what's happening there. Beautiful spot for the realization for that to set in. Just a warm feeling of love in this chapter. I like it a lot.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I am really enjoying getting back into it. I appreciate the kind words!

First of all, I LOVE this song and it is 100% JAM quality inspiration!
I love this chapter. Darryl’s “I love a spa day” dreamily made my day because YeS he would say that, just like that.
Pam daydreaming about a beach and sand and fruity drinks and no kids=yessssss.
I love post-series real life fics so I’m excited to see where you take these two.

So if anyone tells you how many times a day I've been checking to see if the next chapter is here, I'm sure they are exaggerating, by a . . . . little. I'm sure it does not exceed 10 times a day!
Author's Response: Aww, thank you!! That means so much. ;) I'm working on it! I'm thinking by Friday I'll have something for you all. I appreciate you saying something!

I like how this chapter is set up. Jim knows this job took a toll on their marriage once and he can tell it's starting to go down that path again. Good on him for being aware enough this time to realize that. Also great to see that Jim and Pam can still connect quickly like this. Show's they do have a strong relationship.
Author's Response: Thank you for the thoughtful response! I hope you're liking what's up so far. Hopefully I'll have more out soon!

I like it so far! I can totally relate to that disconnected feeling—my husband and I work long hours and sometimes it feels hard to get quality time between work time and bedtime!
Ooh and I can totally picture Jim in a tropical locale...swim trunks and all...;)
Author's Response: Or no swim trunks at all? ;)

So far not bad. Not sure where this is going other than maybe some of the stressed-married life we saw in season 9. Good writing style though.
Author's Response: Thank you! I was hoping to pique interest, so I’m glad i at least did that. :)

Aw; it’s really sweet and realistic so far. I haven’t seen a lot of after-show fics, so I’m looking forward to reading more of this!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I am so glad you like it so far. Hoping to keep up a good pace with chapters - thank you for the review!

I so TOTALLY adore this song and have often thought of Jim and Pam's love when I listen to it. And this is a sweet, intriguing start to a story. You have my attention! :)
Author's Response: Oh my gosh, thank you! I'm working on the next chapter, so hopefully I'll have it up soon! :)
