The Things We Do for Love

This week John and I had the chance to sneak away for 3 days to celebrate our Anniversary! :)

Since John recently bought a new boat for our family and he LOVES spending time on the lake ~ guess what we did for our Anniversary! You got it! John has been anxious to take the boat out on "the bigs" (Lake Michigan) ~ so our getaway was right on the lakeshore. It was beautiful and relaxing and just what we needed. :)

(I must confess...I did bring along some work. I needed to put the finishing touches on a devotion I'm writing for a Moms Group that was due while I was away. Would you believe my laptop died the first night?? Bummer! Guess God had a different plan! It became a work-free weekend!)

When I was little, I used to have a record that said...."C my name is Cindy, and I don't like it windy, because the breezes in the air, it messes up my hair. My hair. My hair. It messes up my hair."

The kids and John sing this song all the time because they know it's true - I don't like it windy! But for this getaway, I didn't mind it one bit :) John was having a blast!

And what made our getaway even better...there was a Christian music festival taking place right down the road from our hotel. Our room was right on the water, and we had four different sliding glass doors that opened overlooking the lake. Last night, I was able to listen to the worship music from the concert, put my feet up, and read a new Corrie Ten Boom book....all while John read right next to me by the fireplace. A perfect ending to a perfect day. :)

A HUGE thank you to my parents and John's parents for helping make this happen!! You guys are the BEST! :) What a blessing! :)

Okay, this sounds like a lot of fun and makes me sinfully jealous.

Glad you had a good time. My daughter (15) does not like the wind in her hair either. She has her permit and we go driving. Needless to say my car doesn't have air conditioning. She keeps the window up on the driver side but rolls the rest down. It get hot in there and she won't roll hers down. Wait until she doesn't have air in her car! I think it's funny. I was never like that at her age, I was a tomboy!
