We’re tired, we’re happy, we shopped till we dropped and had a great time together! It is amazing how the span of just over 24 hours alone can leave two people feeling like there has been a refresher on their marriage, and puts a bounce in their steps.
Corey and I had a wonderful time away together. We spent the majority of Saturday wondering around Metrotown in Vancouver. We found him a new outfit, I found some new jeans and Corey talked me into purchasing my very first little black dress.
Then we spent the latter part of the time in Metrotown maddly dashing around for shoes, and a necklace. I have big feet and that makes buying heels difficult. Add to that I didn’t want to spend $300 on them and we had a chore. But ultimately I settled on an ok pair (which were comfy in the store but have now left actual wear holes into my feet, I think they’ll be retired. At least they looked good) and a pearl necklace. And we were off.
It was a wonderful time away together. It was what Corey and I needed after a really crazy year. He’s worked so hard, we’ve stressed over different situations and people we’ve had to deal with, we’ve worried about finances and have had moments with our kids. We’ve had days where it feels we’ve hardly seen each other, and days where it feels that while we spent all our time together we hardly had time to talk. It’s been life, it is what it is, but sometimes, life needs to take a backseat for just a little while so you can focus on the one you fell in love with, and realize that today 4 and a bit years later that the impossible has happened. You now love your spouse, your other half, more than you did on the day you were married.
Thank you so much to my wonderful Mom and Dad! Not only for watching our kids for the weekend, but keeping them entertained and letting them have so very much fun! We heard about it all evening last night, while we were getting them ready for bed. And thank you so much for the hotel anniversary gift, we probably wouldn’t have gone, if you hadn’t given us the push! You’re awesome and we love you!
