Anniversary Trip

Hubby was power washing the driveway a few wks. ago and called me outside to see his work of art. He has always been a romantic. Over our 41 years together he has surprised me with many of his art work "masterpieces". (smile)

Another of his  "pieces".  Done in the winter, as you can see.

He wanted to wisk me away for a few days for our anniversary, so we headed to Hilton Head Island.   We stayed here at the Crown Plaza.

The Hotel had a fruit bowl waiting for us in the room.

It was nice to relax and do only what we felt like doing.   The scenery is always beautiful!

For our anniversary dinner the restaurant served us this delicious dessert!  It was so nice of them to take the time to personalize it, don't you think?

While on the Island we ate at Crazy Crab for lunch.  Notice the very old fishing boat in the background.   They were just coming in with a load of crabs.

Late in the evening when we got back to our room the Manager had a message waiting for us.
We called back and they brought us these little goodies .

 They offered us champagne but we told him we didn't drink... so he sent up a variety of beverages.

Wonderful ending to a great day!

Are you all having a busy  summer?   I can't believe how the time is flying and it's already August!
I'll be by to visit you soon!    Thanks for stopping by.   I love hearing from each of you!

What a wonderful way to spend your anniversary! I love to see people who have been married for a number of years still be in love and love being together! What a model for our children!

Thanks for visiting my blog and to answer your question - I came out of the classroom as teacher about six years ago and now work as a curriculum specialist. But my heart is still in the classroom! Say a prayer for our system next Monday as that is the day all our students will return to school! Are you in education??
Sorry - I didn't mean to write a book. LOL Have a great rest of the week!

Happy 41st Anniversary dear friend.
Your getaway is fabulous. You two look wonderful and the pics are great. What a nice hotel to do so many nice things for you. Your hubby is a true romantic too.

We are leaving on our anniversary the 11th for Hot Springs Ark. Hubby planned it all. I am so looking forward to it.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful Friday and great weekend. I wish you both many more wonderful years together.
Blessings always,
Celestina Marie

Looks like you had a special celebration! They did some neat things for you there at the hotel! I remember the hotel, the Crazy Crab, etc. We haven't been there in a few years!
