So after eight and a half years of marriage, we finally decided to take an adult only trip (longer than one night), kind of hard for us but much needed! My sweet parents came into town and watching the kiddos while we went to San Francisco for a long weekend. Some of our best friends the Broughtons live close to San Fran and met us for the first two days of our trip. Looking back at the seven years that we have known the Broughtons, I don't think we have ever been alone with them without all our kids (they have four kids as well), so this was definitely a treat. We could actually have complete conversations, it was amazing:) We had such a blast with them, visiting Union Square, Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39, Nob Hill, Koit Tower, Lombard Street, Boudin Bakery, Ghiradelli, taking a ride on the cable cars, and eating awesome food. Thank you Broughtons for the wonderful memories, we enjoyed every second of it!!!
The second half of our trip Matt & I spent most of our time at Golden Gate Park, and of course without Erica Broughton to remind me, I didn't take any pictures, but take my word for it, it was beautiful. We had such a relaxing day. The weather was gorgeous and Matt spoiled me by taking me to the Botanical Gardens and the Flower Conservatory. I know he wasn't as interested in them as me but you would have never known it. We did a little more touristy site seeing and ate some more wonderful food, and then it was time to return home to our little family, who were as happy to see us as we were to see them:)
What a treat a trip like that was! I always tell Matt how spoiled I feel in our marriage, not that it's picture perfect all the time, but for the most part, we always just mesh. We communicate well and we love each other more than anything. This trip was a good reminder of where we started. That our little life and our family started with us. Thanks again Mom & Rush for allowing us to have this opportunity. We felt truly spoiled! And thank you Matt for taking me on such an amazing trip. You are my partner in crime, there is no one else I'd rather see the world with.
