Shady and I finally our anniversary this weekend. We actually had time to spend time together. I know that some people get caught up in the moment and spend lavish amounts of money on dinners and hotels and getaways, but I knew what my Shady loves…water. We had already pre-determined that our anniversary would be one of three/four times we would step away from the vegan eating. So here is how it all went down for the weekend…
We slept in as much as possible and took our time getting ready.
We dropped off the little bear @ Nana’s around 11:30 a.m.
We hopped in the Silver Sloth and drove to OM State Park.
We found our way to the lake and there they were. In all of their glory. The water shimmering and the docks swaying as the wind and water pressed and released it’s hold.
We parked as Shady shrilled with excitement and wonder.
Why? Paddleboats. One hour, just the two of us, surrounded by water and beauty and majesty that God created.
We talked about what God has done over the past 4 years.
We laughed…we teared up…we splashed each other…
Then we cruised around OM for a little longer. We found the fishing spot and were going to rent a couple of fishing poles (even though I don’t like to fish) but they don’t rent them out. So we loaded back up and zipped on the TGIFriday’s for a meat-a-palooza and dessert-a-holic meal.
We finally went to pick up little bear at about 7 30 or so. We hung out @ Nana and Gruff’s for a while longer and then took off to the house.
It was one of the best days I’ve ever had with Shady.
I love you, sweetheart. You are my heart’s desire.
