Ugh. Monday. Sometimes I loathe you for coming so quickly. This past weekend was our Anniversary Weekend Celebration. It one of those weekends that I didn’t want to end.
Anniversary Weekend Celebration
Friday night B and I went to Chateau Elan in Georgia for our anniversary. We spent our first night away from Annabelle, all alone, and had the best. time. ever. Of course we missed Annabelle, but I was able to relax and enjoy being a wife – not a Mommy – for the first time in 10 months.
I felt like B and I were young lovebirds again. It was so amazing to be alone because we could just focus on each other. I feel like this weekend we really had a chance to be B & C, and not Mom and Dad. We talked about our future, we talked about the past, and of course we talked about Annabelle. We laughed so hard about everything, tried to sneak into the pool after hours, and pranced around our hotel room in our bathrobes with big glasses of champagne like we were a king and queen.
If you live anywhere near Georgia and are looking for someplace romantical and fun for a getaway with your lovey – or even for a girls weekend – definitely look into Chateau Elan. We will be going back soon!
We picked up Annabelle early Saturday morning from my in-laws and headed to the pumpkin patch. We had fun picking a pumpkin – which we have yet to carve- and visiting with the animals again. This time she wasn’t so scared of the cows and goats. She was, however, a little bit sleepy so she didn’t feel like posing for pictures.
Saturday night I made pizzas and we hung out at home. I wish I took a picture of her with the vegan pizza I made us… she went to town on the olives, red peppers, and dairy free cheese! She made it very hard for me to eat a piece since she stood at my lap and demanded bite after bite. It was adorable though.
Sunday we went to the park for the first time. She LOVED the swings. The rest of the playground toys were too big for her. We attempted the slide, but I think I had more fun than she did!
Then we went home and played all day long together. It was such a beautiful day – one of those days that you just look at the blue sky while the wind blows against your face and thank God that you’re alive.
Here’s to hoping I have a million more weekends like the one I just had. Happy Monday everyone!
