52 Weeks of Happiness :: Week 12


We left the kids with my parents and
escaped to a little cabin in the woods
to celebrate the fact that we've been
married for 9 glorious (yet sometimes crazy) years.


It was right next to a babbling brook.
The sound of rushing water was
almost intoxicating.


There was a fire pit beneath a canopy of trees
and we just sat there and relaxed for hours upon hours.

We talked, laughed, cried, drank, ate, smooched,
and smacked at bugs all within that circle.


We played Skip Bo and listened
to good music on the screened in porch.
A little competition keeps our marriage spicy.

I totally won, by the way!


I would sneak off in the morning while
Roger slept in and eat my yummy breakfast
right on the river every morning.

The air was crisp and my soul felt full.
It was solitude drizzled with honey.


We took a bunch of stupid movies
and watched mindless films in the middle of the afternoon
while sipping on glasses of wine.

It was totally indulgent.


Our little cabin was the prefect home away from home.

Tune in tomorrow
and I'll tell you all about one of
our perilous adventures in the mountains.

to scout out happiness for a whole year?

"The air was crisp and my soul felt full"..... THOSE are moments I live for. I can so very happily and excitedly say that Irishman and I make those moments as well; full moments, crisp moments and ones in which the world stops breathing for just long enough that we can recharge and bask in being in love.

Such beautiful photos!

Caroline said...

Oh yay! yay! Yay! for some getaway time! Again, congratulations on your anniversary!

The cabin weekend looks amazing. Your photography, as always is incredible. And, I can't wait to hear about the hike--I will stay tuned.

Glad y'all had fun. We need to do something similar!
