On October 5th Mark and I celebrated 25 years of marriage. I clearly remember our 5th anniversary and thinking 7 years seems so long! But, boy, did those years fly by. 2 boys, 8 houses and 2 relocations later, I can honestly say I would do it all over again.
On our 10th anniversary our boys were 3 and 4 years old and we didn't want to go too far away or stay away too long. So we chose to make a weekend trip to Saugatuck, Michigan. We stayed in a charming Bed & Breakfast and had a wonderful time.
For our 25th we always thought we would take some fabulous trip somewhere exotic. However, the reality is that our boys are now a senior in high school and a sophomore in college. Next spring break we plan to take a fabulous FAMILY vacation to the caribbean. Therefore we decided to once again to take a weekend trip back to Saugatuck!
This time I rented a charming 1880's farmhouse located just a few blocks from downtown. The location was perfect and the home was as cute as can be. However, just before leaving town I came down with a raging case of bronchitis (I'm still taking meds for it!) and while it did put a damper on the trip we still enjoyed our time alone.
Here are some pictures of the house. Mark made good use of the kitchen, cooking all our meals while I napped in the family room. Have a mentioned that I love this man?
On Sunday morning before we headed home we drove to downtown Saugatuck and took some photos of the main street. The shopping in this town is fantastic. I can't wait to return when I feel better. Maybe at Christmas time.
One last stop at this farm stand and we headed home.
It was a great, relaxing time together. Here's to 25 more blissful years!
