Sunny Days

A few years ago, we decided to go to London for our 10th anniversary.

That didn't happen.

Then, we decided to have a romantic weekend in Asheville and stay at the Inn at the Biltmore Estate to celebrate 10 years of wedded bliss.

Nope, that wasn't it either.

Then, a few weeks ago we decided that we liked our home so much more than the trouble of packing up all of our stuff and driving a few miles down the road and paying waaaaaay more than we should on a hotel room.

So, we had a weekend at home (without children, of course)! I know it doesn't sound all that exciting, but it was the most perfect weekend that I have had in a very long time. Even though we didn't do anything memorable really - no Big Ben or Parliament - we relaxed, we talked, and we did not work. And we went to Krispy Kreme at 10:00 in our pajamas. You can't do that in London! Or maybe you can, but you'd have to use a map and take a cab - it wouldn't be nearly as spontaneous!

We did go to the Biltmore Estate because we haven't actually seen the inside of the house lately - it's nearly impossible with a stroller and I'm not letting Davis loose in there! On the drive out, we stopped to take some pictures of the biggest sunflowers that I have seen this year. Beautiful, all bright and sunny. Just like our anniversary weekend!

I don't know if I told you, or you saw them...Diane planted sunflowers in that area where the air conditioners are (that used to be a big junk pile of old toys). They were HUGE this year and so beautiful. Maybe you did see them. I don't know. Anyway...Happy Anniversary!

That sounds wonderful. Maybe I should give that a try too? Happy anniversary! And thank you for visiting my blog, too!
