We spent our http://farmgirlblogs.com/example-of-reflective-essay/ tucked away in the woods. It was the most relaxing get away we’ve ever had and definitely our favorite anniversary trip thus far. We booked this gorgeous cabin for a two night stay in Broken Bow.It was absolutely gorgeous and cozy. They literally thought of everything from cooking utensils, board games, extra blankets, soap, laundry detergent, etc. I loved that they decorate the cabins for Christmas too. They had a journal in the living room area where guests would sign and talk about their stay. So neat to see where everyone came from. We grabbed groceries on our way down and brought steaks to grill for our Anniversary dinner. For lunch, we went to The Grateful Head Pizza and it was amazing and such a unique atmosphere. We toured Hochatown and I really wanted to bring this guy back with us for a front porch greeter. We spent most of our time watching movies by the fire, in the hot tub when it was 15 degrees outside, and just enjoying each others company. Zack made us a fire on our first night so we could have smores.I can’t wait to go back. It was nice to get a way from everything and just get back to us. We talked about how much life we’ve gone through over the last 5 years and where we wanted to be or try to accomplish over the next 5-10-and 20. I’m so thankful for my husband and best friend. He makes this life so sweet and blesses me more than I can say. Thank you for this trip, babe. You love me so well and I’m constantly amazed at how God has written this love story. Love you to Heaven.
We had a quick family trip to Branson over the weekend with my in-laws. Zack’s granny Opal hasn’t been doing so well so we went for a visit and she finally got to meet the girls! My mom-in-love rented this amazing T R E E H O U S E Cabin at a local resort down the road from granny’s place and it was the neatest place to stay.We left Friday night after work so the girls could sleep and they did! The entire 6 hour drive! #praisehands I’d love to come back for a week vacation and take the girls to Branson for some fun. Paisley loved that we were literally in a tree. It was super nice inside and we had plenty of room for all 8 of us. (Zack’s sister and boyfriend came too. :) ) We relaxed the entire weekend which was a blessing for us. The girls got to play (they had a neat playground next to our tree house) and we got to visit and cookout. It was a great time and both of the girls first long trip (more than 3+ hours) in the car. :)
Wednesday night, Zack and I snuck off to celebrate our anniversary at Southwind Hills. I had a Pursuit Group there months back and completely fell in love with the place. They just opened up a little cottage not too long ago and when I saw the ad on Facebook I booked it on a whim. They usually have it on the weekends for couples who get married but they also book it during the week to the public. We were their first weekday couple. Christmas season is such a stressful + busy time at the store, not to mention Zack is almost finished with fire school and applying for a job. We don’t see much of each other lately and to say we needed some “us” time is an understatement. The cottage is nestled off away from their wedding venue in a wooded area. Seriously so gorgeous. I won’t ramble on too long and let the photos speak for themselves. The vision I have for my home would seriously be decorated like this space. Wood planks, white walls, chandeliers, rustic meets glam. Hello Pioneer Woman dishes. I ordered these last week and actually got to test them out here. Cannot wait to have them in our house. Before we left I took hubby up for a tour of the barn. We spent the rest of the day enjoying each other in Norman. Lunch was at a favorite spot we frequent, we finished up our Christmas shopping, and had kid free conversations. It was the perfect day with my man.
Here’s to many more. I love you, Zack. Happy Anniversary!
