Blake and I snuck away (well, not literally!) for three days last weekend!
It was FABULOUS!
We were traveling teenage style…in Grant’s car! I actually loved it till I hit my head getting in it at one of our stops!
Before we left our area, I had a list of errands to do in town.
Things like getting my glasses adjusted. Important stuff.
We also stopped at my favorite second hand store to shop for clothes for Eliza.
Our sweet baby is growing SO fast!
On our drive to the big city, I already had my notebooks out!
We use this trip every year to plan our budget, school, activities, and usually our farm ventures – although this year we are planning a move instead.
Once in the big city we stopped for a quick lunch – fresh smoothies. Ahhh. My kind of lunch!
We made a Target run…
By then it was snowing, so we stopped for these…..
We had a suite for the weekend so we could cook our meals! Grocery shopping at the local co-op was a treat!!
Our meals were INCREDIBLE! Blake cooked for me all weekend! Thanks, honey!!
Even though it was freezing, and snowing, we did a lot of walking!
Sometimes we had motivation for our walks. Don’t judge – at least it’s not ice cream!
We managed to get all of our planning done. And all next year’s school books ordered!
We had help staying motivated with all of that too!
The view from our suite was very city like. We were not in the country anymore!
We also stopped at Costco for some family sized groceries! Wish we had a Costco near us!
We went to see a movie, and even considered seeing a second one! Miracles from Heaven was very good!
We Skyped the kiddos twice a day. They LOVED that. They usually were all taking at once! It was so cute!
We also visited a beautiful church on Sunday morning! It was a breathtaking service. Left us both in tears!
And just like that, it was time to head home! I was getting antsy! I was ready to get home!
We are now saying for our 30th anniversary we will go somewhere warm! And far away!
But I think we said that for our 20th. And 25th!!
Goes to show what I say is true. It doesn’t matter where you are, as long as you have your people!
Blake is my person! (Lane is watching me type this and said “He’s my person too!!” Cue the Kleenex, please!)
And I love spending time with Blake!
We work hard to keep our marriage strong and healthy!
It is SO worth it! To be heirs together in the grace of life!
Praising the Lord for 27 years of marriage!!
And for a FABULOUS get away!!
