Just a little getaway

While my family was here this week, L.D. and I celebrated our 8th anniversary.  I realized it had been a long two and a half years since our trip to Charleston and any overnight get-a-way...meaning one was desperately needed.  I also knew if we didn't go before baby #3 came along it would be another 2 years before we went again!

So, I asked my mom and Aunt Tina if we could take off for 24 hours and they were thrilled to have the girls to themselves (to spoil without mommy around!).  Then I asked LD if he would pick a place close by and book a room.

We ended up in Greenville, SC, and this could easily be one of my very favorite places to visit.
It is so unique with this gorge and river running through the town, the fun bridge and trails to walk along with little swings throughout.

Then LD had booked a yummy dinner at a steakhouse just down the street from our hotel.  The cute couple in the background was also celebrating their anniversary and expecting a baby the end of January.

We shared a yummy meal and then the waitress brought out this super yummy chocolate covered cherry cheesecake...heavely!!

We stayed right in Greenville and walked to breakfast and then up and down the unique downtown streets, in and out of shops.  We stopped by the mall on our way home, and then at the outlets.  Such a perfect little 24 hours.

It is amazing the impact that lasts from 24 hours spent together, especially in the middle of a chaotic life of little children!

Happy 8th Anniversary love!  Thanks for taking the day off to spend some time with me! xo
