Our Anniversary Weekend

This afternoon, Jake and I are headed to The Lake of the Ozarks for a little 7 Year Anniversary getaway!! While I'll miss my sweet babies terribly, I am really looking forward to a short little trip to the lake just the 2 of us. It's been since 2012 that we took a trip alone, so it's well overdue. 

We are staying at the Lodge of 4 Seasons for two nights and will head home on Sunday afternoon.

  We plan to do a little shopping while we're there, spend some time on the strip, rent a boat and go to dinner at the Blue Heron. :-) Back in 2001, the year we started dating, we went with some friends to the Lake of the Ozarks and we had a very nice dinner at the Blue Heron, so it will be fun to go back now after 13 years of being together. :-)

It's so hard to believe that we've been a couple for 13 years this month and have been married for 7 of those years! While no marriage is perfect, I love Jake so much and appreciate all he does for our family. He goes to work every day, cooks dinner, takes care of the yard, does the grocery shopping, takes care of our finances and helps with the laundry! He's a great father to our two sweet kiddos and a loving and caring husband! I am so blessed to be married to my best friend!
