This past Sunday the hubby and I celebrated our seven year anniversary. It wasn’t what we were expecting it to be but it was just what we needed, well at least what I needed.
We dropped the kiddos off at my mom’s place and then headed to Harrison late Sunday afternoon. Harrison has been a place that we have always wanted to check out. Unfortunately, Jon wasn’t feeling well and I had just gotten my tattoo. I was in a very anti-social mood and was very content in sitting in our room and staring at the amazing view from our balcony and even just the bed at times.
The view was stunning and that alone relaxed me.
It is funny when there are no kids to look after anytime soon that you just do not know what to do with yourselves. There were a few times when we looked at each other and were like, “So, what do you want to do?”
In the end, we ended up taking a nap, yes a nap! And glorious it was. We left the screen door open with the sheer blinds draped across it and fell asleep to the sound of the lake, the birds and a few people walking by. We made sure to set an alarm so as to not sleep away the entire night.
Once we woke up we decided to order room service. Check mark on the bucket list! Again, I was in such an anti-social mood that being able to get my food brought to me and eat alone with Jon, in the quiet sounded amazing to me. Jon ordered a sandwich with fries and I ordered the fettucini with scallops and shrimp. Although our meals were tasty I wouldn’t pay what we did a second time around.
After our food settled a bit we headed down to the pools. They were nice but not being able to put my one arm in the water, plus the pink hair I felt like I was on this huge display of people’s curiosity. At least one man was brave enough to ask why I wasn’t putting my arm in. We didn’t stay in all that long as it was crowded and again, big anti-social that night for me.
Then for the rest of the night, we just relaxed and watched a movie went to bed and slept in till 9:30am! Yawhoooooo!!
We are looking forward to bringing the kids there in the summer for a little family staycation. All we could think about when we were in the pools were the kids and how much we knew that they would love it.
What have I learned with having seven years of marriage behind me? Grace. Always leave room for grace.
Only 3 more years till the big 10!
