You know people say marriage is hard, and I agree, sometimes it is hard. Not because you don't love each other, not because you're not committed, but just because you're two different people who are living life together. You have different ideas about things, different feelings, etc. But sometimes, marriage is pretty darn easy, and thank God, in our marriage, the easy times far outweigh the hard times. Last week was an easy time. John sent me flowers for no reason at all, just because, at work one day. Then the next day, he said we needed to go somewhere that weekend, just us. Want to know what's good for your marriage? When your husband WANTS to go on a little trip with just YOU. When he says that, you do everything you can to make it happen!
Thank the good Lord we are blessed with friends and family who love to keep Fitz so we can get away, too.
We settled on Memphis. John has been before, but I had never been to Memphis, only THROUGH Memphis. We got ideas from FB friends about where to eat and what to do, and set off Friday afternoon.
We ate yummy BBQ.
We saw diving goats.
We watched crazies on Beale Street. And sweated.
We saw Graceland (Elvis's former home in case you're clueless)
I'm in love with the peacock stained glass pieces!!
The TV room, with those "modern" TVs and mirrors on the ceilings.
The pool room. 350 yards of fabric in there! I told John I want a room like this.
We even saw the king himself.
Of course, we had to see the ducks at The Peabody. Look at this gorgeous fountain!
We even saw (but did not eat) a 6 lb burger!
We had yummy food all weekend!
We laughed, we napped, we enjoyed our time together! I sang all the way there and back while John drove, and he enjoyed it, even if he claims otherwise. Until the next adventure - I love you, John! I'm so glad you're MINE.
