I have a question for you all! Dw and I are in a dilemma and yesterday he suggested I ask you, our bloggy friends, for your ideas, thoughts and suggestions. So what is our dilemma? Well in just a few short months we will be celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary!! Three cheers for us, right?! It’s so monumental that we know we have to do something special to celebrate.
Funny story…when Dw and I first started dating I was 17 and his parents were just about to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary. Like it was yesterday I remember thinking to myself, “Wow! Forty years! That’s so long and they are soooooo old!” Seriously, it was like it was just yesterday! And here we are about to celebrate our 40th!! I’m tellin’ ya’ friends, love your treasures, love each other – it all goes way too fast!
We have tossed around tons of ideas but think that maybe someone out there has an even better idea cause so far we can’t decide or even narrow it down to a few possibilities.
Some things to know:
We honeymooned in a little dilapidated cabin in the Pocono woods. I can still remember the smell today. We cooked our own meals, swam in the motel pool and played shuffleboard. It was so much fun! But quite truthfully, forty years of cooking has made this gal ready for some pampering on our 40th!! Please don’t make me cook our meals or it will be a week of granola bars!
Kidding. Sort of.
We have never been away for more than a few two night getaways together in the 40 years we’ve been married. Life just happened way too fast between pastoring, bringing treasures home and all the adjustments that brought! So we have to make this celebration gooder-than-good!
Resources are slim so we have to keep that in mind while dreaming of a getaway.
I don’t really want to drive somewhere far to “relax” and have to drive back after – that sounds too tiring already! I would rather fly unless it was less than six hours away.
Graham and Savannah have told us they are coming to watch the kids and we are going!! They want us to go for at least a week.
Where would you go if you were us? What would you do? Dream for us!! Please share your dreams – we need your help!!
