This conference has been a GREAT experience for Brian and I to experience alone. Even though we have been very busy, really tired, missing the kids, sleeping on an air mattress in our friends living room floor it has been like a second honeymoon for us. We have LOVED our time together. It has been refreshing, easy, fun and just what we needed. I find Brian saying cute little things to me, holding my hand, flirting with me and really enjoying being by my side. Not that these things don’t usually happen…they do, just not as much when we are in the normal grind of life. For me it has been a great reminder that he does still think I am cute and he likes to hold my hand and I do still get butterflies when he smiles at me. This has been an unexpected surprise for our time here. I am so thankful God has given us this gift!
On Sunday we took a day trip to Estes Park and drove into the Rocky Mountain National Park. We drove to the highest possible point and then took a small hike to to the top of Longs Peak. It was cold, rainy and windy at the top and we were totally unprepared with our shorts and sandals but it still was a great adventure. Here are some pics of our day. Our time in Colorado is coming to a close tomorrow night. On Thursday we will fly back to Ohio to get our kids that we are missing so much. Then Saturday we take flight again for the final time and make our way back HOME! The next time I write I will be in the comforts of my own home….a smile and sigh of relief!
Yes, totally prepared.
