Anniversary Weekend

Daune and I decided to go away for a weekend to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Originally, we were going to head to Savannah for the weekend but, we chose to stay close and spend more time enjoying a "vacation" rather than driving in our car. We got a 4 star hotel in downtown Atlanta and upon check in were upgraded to Executive Level by a great front desk clerk who wanted to do something special for us for our anniversary.

Friday night we enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Ruth's Chris Steak House ... one of my favorite restaurants!! Another great experience with a wonderful wait staff who could not do enough for us. I had to laugh at the fact that no one would believe we had been married for 20 years - sometimes it is hard for me to believe it has been that long.

Saturday we enjoyed just relaxing at our hotel - having a late breakfast, then heading to Piedmont Park with a quick stop at my sister's restaurant. Saturday night we had a suite at the Atlanta Braves game. It was so much fun watching the game from a comfortable air conditioned room. The game itself was also good and afterward, Sara Evans performed a free concert.

Then it seems just as quickly as our weekend got started it was over ... the kids had a great time during the weekend too but, they missed us and it was so great to see them!! Ava Mae spent at least an hour hugging me and telling me how much we were missed.

Happy Anniversary!!! It is always nice to get away, I am glad you guys took a weekend for yourselves. Our anniversary is coming up in a few weeks. I think we are going to the NC mountains. It will be 34 years, the time does fly by.
