Just one night of selfishness

One night.
This was the first night that Chris and I left the kids for a selfish night to ourselves (thanks to our selfish act of outbidding another great couple at Edie's fundraiser).
This place is so very special to us and it was nice to go back - even though it was just for a little while.
Although we were just minutes from home, we felt like we were a million miles away.
The view from our balcony - thanks to our "VIP" room. It was just the two of us and no camera.
The Blackberry held at arm's length had to do...we're really not that yellowy/orange in person.

We had a great time although neither one of us could sleep.
I don't know if we are just accustomed to no sleep, but we were both wide awake at 2:30 a.m. and finally up before dawn.
I will say that this is the first breakfast in four years where I was able to sit and read a newspaper
and
it is also the first time in a very, very long time that Chris and I have been able to enjoy spa services -way overdue mind you.
It was nice to spend the quiet time with Chris, sometimes we forget what that feels like - but we wouldn't trade our lives for anything.
Maybe we can go back again next year and maybe next year we can sleep until at least daybreak.

Glad yall were able to have some time together. It's always good to have time for just the two of you, but I too feel the same way about leaving my little guy. Glad yall enjoyed some time together relaxing and spending time with each other!
