Back in September 2012 Brent and I celebrated 15 years...by doing nothing.
Sad, but true.
We knew that the kids were BOTH going away to snow camp in January for 3 days, and we decided that would be when we would go away too.
So, this past weekend, we went to Chicago for the weekend, and the kids went up to snow camp in Michigan, where there, ironically enough, was no snow...because we had a heat wave over the weekend!
The middle of January, and it was almost 60 degrees.
It made for a good weekend for us, even though the kids were forced to be with MUD instead of SNOW.
You know, after 15 years together...you know each other pretty well. All your bad traits, all your good traits.
We decided to put aside all those things about ourselves that drive the other crazy. Just for the weekend.
It was our first trip away without the kids...in 15 years.
We slept in a King Bed instead of our Queen.
We ate expensive meals, just paying for 2 instead of 4!
We walked all day, shopping, buying birthday gifts for our kids birthdays coming up...visiting places in Chicago we had never been to before.
We'll be back. It's our vacation EVERY YEAR...CHICAGO. We'll have to take them to the new places we saw.
