Anniversary Getaway {Year 10}

After a decade of marriage it seems that 10 years has vanished in the blink of an eye.  It's so easy to get buried in the details of life.  That is why it's so important to take a step back when ever you can.  It's hard to get away, it's expensive, you need child and/or pet care, and you need time!  We make time once a year to celebrate us.  It's not even a whole weekend away, it's half a weekend, just 24 completely relaxing and indulgent hours.  I'm excited that next years 24 hour vacay is only 365 days away;)

This year it was a night at the Ritz Carlton and dinner at Maggiano's (the same place where we had our wedding reception a decade ago).  We checked in early and then it was off to the Spa for me for 2 hours of champagne pedicure and manicure.  Can you say, BLISS?!?  Hubs went to the Gym, because that's fun for him.  Me, I'll take the Spa any day.


After that we spent awhile in the pool and hot tub together...more relaxing.  I even checked out the steam room.  When we were tired of having contests to see who could hold their breath longer under water we got cleaned up and mixed up a a few bourbon and cokes and parked ourselves in front of the History channel in our hotel room.  I lounged in my Ritz Carlton Robe with my feet up....ahhhhh.  No kids, no screaming, no stepping on toys, no "MOMMIEEEEEEE".  Tee Hee, just quiet:)

Dinner was wonderful.  The chef brought us celebratory champagne and we finished a 5 course meal with Tiramisu! 

When we returned to our room there was a surprise waiting from our parents!  Champagne on ice and rose petals in the shape of a heart on our bed.  I have to say here, you know you are getting old when it's your parents setting the "mood" for you, Hahahah!

It was 24 hours of fun.  We feel rejuvenated and ready for the rest of our lives.  As my husband said to me, "10 Years down, a lifetime to go..."
