Anniversary Getaway

Anniversary Getaway

Although our 10th anniversary was back in June, we celebrated again this weekend with a delightful weekend away. ¬†Thanks to the gift of a condo from my parents and babysitting from Than’s parents, we enjoyed…

…a tour and tea tasting at Celestial Seasonings

…the majestic landscapes of Bill Hughes at the Leaning Tree art gallery

…four bull elk stopping traffic

…veal saltimbocca with cannoli for dessert

…window shopping in nearly every store in downtown Estes

…three visits to a great papercrafting store (including a husband who not only gave me permission to buy things, but helped me pick them out!)

…chai tea by the side of a lake while watching the moon and stars

…dashing barefoot through the cold to warm up in a deserted hot tub

…late night card games

…discovering a lovely little Anglican chapel hidden away on a dirt road

…the beauty of golden aspens mixed with dark pines

…tequila lime tacos and spicy queso

…taking photos of each other just outside our room by a rushing stream

…beignets with raspberry sauce and an avocado-turkey eggs Benedict

…peeking in rooms at the beautiful and historic Stanley Hotel

…waking up to the first snow of the season

…the freedom to keep our own schedule–go whenever, eat whenever, wake and sleep whenever

…lots of uninterrupted conversation, perhaps one of the best treats of all

We are so grateful for the time away together, and look forward to the next ten years!
