We always like to stay in charming little bed and breakfast inns whenever we go off like this. We were happy to find a little "village" complex of historic homes, each restored and unique.
Here's the parlor. Keith and I both like antiques so this really appealed to us.
It was nice so to have so much time together, just us. That doesn't happen a whole lot in the day to day, sometimes hectic lives we both lead. A chance to really connect; focusing our attention on each other.
A time to relax. A time to renew.
Lots of opportunity for talk on the four hour trip down and back. The freedom of the "no hurry to get back home" feeling that's so typical of our weekly date night. Eating out at a few exciting new restaurants (including some great vegan eats for me). Talks around the breakfast table with interesting people staying at the inn. Walking around town, and especially enjoying a few historic homes we toured. A stroll through Saturday's downtown Farmer's Market, as well as an antique store on the way back to the inn. And the highlight- our own horseback riding adventure in red rock country.
All of these memory makers, adding a real boost to our relationship.
Come back in the next two days and I'll share lots more.
I love taking pictures, you know.
