After a week of being apart, I planned a weekend get-a-way at a bed and breakfast for just Toby and I. We hadn't celebrated our anniversary the way we had wanted to (a get-a-way weekend) because Toby was down in Mississippi the weekend after the day of our anniversary. So, we decided to do it this weekend instead and it was so fun.
My sister Britt was here and graciously and patiently watched our kids. I had no need to worry or fear for them and actually had to pinch myself in order to remember to even think of my darling babies. It was so nice not to have to worry about little people for one night. I impressed myself with this ability to actually not worry about Landon and Janae for once.
It was during our first moments here that we learned of the sudden (yet expected) death of my Grandma Gayle. That certainly made it sad but I purposed in my heart to rejoice with the angels in heaven that at last my grandma was safe and sound with the One who has carried her for so long. Just thinking about her being able to breathe and walk again, brought a bittersweet joy to my heart. She is very sadly missed but I do not weep as those who have no hope because I know I will see her again some day.
Following our some pictures of our special weekend. There were so many details too impossible to capture on camera but we did our best to collect as many memories as we could. I hope you all enjoy this selection.

More details of the room. They still use those old radiators to heat the rooms and boy do they work.
We were served a delicious breakfast in two courses.

Toby checking out the windows. He was trying to find a way to sneak out of there. Or so it looks.
Thankfully, he gave up trying.
He used the stairs instead and took me with him.
What a wonderful weekend!!
