Getting Away

Last week, my sweet husband surprised me with a night away at a little cottage about an hour away from home.  He told me before bed to have a bag packed and ready to go the next morning.  So, the next morning I packed, made some bread, cleaned the house, did some laundry and finished up a curtain project for my daughter-in-law all by late morning!  So much for "spur of the moment" and easy get away.  Moms can't just pack up and leave without lots of preparation, even if most of the five at home are grown.  I had to take a picture of my packing versus my husbands, quite funny.  

His (I kid you, not!)
Mine (A girl needs her stuff!)
Relaxing by the stream.

The happy couple.
We had a relaxing time, we were in a town of 400 posted as it's population, so it didn't have much to offer in the way of entertainment.  It was a time of being together, sitting by the little stream that ran by our cottage and catching up on some reading.  It was nice, we both agreed two nights away would have been better, but thankful for the time we had together.

I love it. What a great time for you guys. Too funny about the packing because I would be packing like he does and my husband packs like you!! I always tell him he won't need nearly that much stuff but he takes it anyway. And when we come home and unpack you know what hear? I overpacked!! I'm trying to teach him!!
