Seven years

Seven years and eight days ago, I married this cutie. Every year since, on the first weekend of May, we embark on a precious two-day getaway to celebrate another successful year of marriage have a few hours of uninterrupted adult conversation. Of course those conversations pretty much always revolve around the kids, and we spend a good bit of time missing them terribly.



First, Nana arrives at Casa de Inman, and we head to our favorite river: the Tellico.


We get dressed in our outdoor finery:



Then I spend the next 3 hours white knuckling the T-grip with a silly grin:



After our float, we check into our luxury accommodations:









And enjoy our dinner by candlelight:


It just doesn't get any better than this.

Oh wow- Rebekah was right about our similar posts. Awesome.

My river says hi to your river BTW.

Ya'll do it right though- we didn't camp (maybe next year?) and we didn't bring wine. I'm taking notes!

*I know I've seen your blog before- but haven't been here for a while. The blogosphere is funny like that- and I see that we have many mutual blogging buddies. Very cool.
