How do I love thee? Let me count the ways....





My blog today is dedicated 100% to my husband, Doug. Tomorrow we will be celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary. We have actually been together for a total of 11 years. Yay! So here's how our weekend goes. My parents are getting ready to go to Iowa for a week or more so my mom called me and asked if she could come up this weekend and see the girls before they went away. I saw no reason she couldn't come. We are also getting ready to leave for the beach so I knew it would be a good 3 weeks or so before we would have the chance to see them again. So Friday night we had just finished dinner and I noticed Delaney had disappeared upstairs. After checking on her I found a suitcase opened and empty (except for all of Delaney's ponies) sitting on the bed in our room. So I ask Doug, "What's up with the suitcase? Are you trying to tell me something?" He then tells me that we're leaving in the morning so I need to pack an overnight bag. My mom then looks at me and says, "I didn't come to see you, I told you I was coming to see the girls!" I honestly must have looked shocked because Doug kept saying, "I'm serious!" So low and behold, Saturday morning we packed up the car and headed out. Our first stop was the outlet malls where we shopped for a few hours (yay for me). Then we headed to a place called Cloudland Canyon State Park in the northwest corner of Georgia. All of the above pictures were taken there. It was incredible for sure! Doug kept joking that he felt sick looking down because we were soo high up. We hiked down into the mountains a bit to see the waterfalls they had. Unfortunately, due to the drought, the waterfalls were not as breath taking as we had hoped but still pretty nonetheless. So after getting drenched in a storm that passed through, we packed up again and headed for Chattanooga for the night. We stayed in downtown Chattanooga. We had dinner and saw a movie. It was so nice! We got to sleep in, completely uninterrupted by the sound of Hadley needing her pacifier which was nice!!! This was our first little get-a-way ever without kids! That's pretty sad considering Delaney is 3-1/2. I owe many many thanks to my mom who took the time out of her own crazy busy life to come free us up for the weekend. We love you Nana!! We couldn't have done this without you. And of course, my wonderful husband, I wish you a Happy Anniversary. I love you more than you'll ever know. You are my one and only best friend. I hope we have many more wonderful years together.
