A Weekend Affair

Now that I am feeling more like myself after yesterday's events I thought I would share some of our weekend with you. Hubby and I had our first 3 night weekend away since having our first little one. The first night was filled with me talking about our fabulous children and me soon realizing that I need to get more educated elsewhere, because really that is all I know now. The first night we stopped in Montgomery, Al and stayed at a hotel that once was an old bank downtown, gorgeous. We walked, talked, and laughed and I actually stayed up to atleast eleven, ha! This is me as my all natural self...


The next morning we made our way down to Mobile, Al. The downtown is filled with old southern history and architecture. The bay housed many ships that really took my breath away... I mean really how do they float?




One evening we took a little drive to Fairhope, Al to have dinner, but first we did a mini photo shoot...






The whole weekend we spent way too much money on food, stayed up late for me, and I just enjoyed my husband. Oh, and he even took me to see Julie & Julia and it too was superb. We have decided to make an annual mini vacation for just the two of us as a part of our lifestyle. Just so we can invest in our marriage a bit. And this is the man I am in love with...



**I have a special thank you to Gracie of Gracie Bella Butterfly for my blog lovin award, it's been great watching her wedding process from the very beginning**

I think it's an excellent decision to set time aside for just you and your husband. All of these photos are lovely, and the white top you're wearing in them is beautiful. So glad you enjoyed your time away -- we all need that.

Reading your blog today brings back memories for me. When our kids were young, we'd occasionally go away for the weekend to a B&B. And, what did we talk about while we were away? Our kids, of course ... LOL.

Glad to hear you had a good time. Great photos!
