It was our 10 year anniversary in March. We always thought by this point in our world, we'd renew our vows on a tropical beach somewhere with some family and the kids. Not so much (maybe year 20?) but we were lucky enough to be able to sneak out for 28 hours of adult time. We'll gladly take it! We headed to the mountains and stayed at a Blackhawk casino hotel. We ate good, had cocktails, gambled, won then hit up the slopes for some snowboarding fun the next day. We really crammed a lot into those 28 hours!
I feel absolutely, unbelievably lucky to have John as my husband and father of our children! We've gone through a lot of changes in the 12 years that we've been together-- 10 years of marriage, 7 household moves, 4 kids, 3 states and 2 star-up companies later... we can take on more than I thought and survive it ;) and it's been a fun ride to boot. He is my rock and our everything!!!
John loves it when I ask him to pose for a pic ;) love that smile John... ha!
The perfect gambling break.
He randomly threw in $10 and won $300 in 2 minutes. He replenished what I lost that night. Thank goodness. See we really balance each other out! The ying to my yang!!
It was a perfect powder day.
I love that we can do this together. And John loves it even more! He's always wanted me to get into snowboarding. Good thing I sucked as skiing, almost as much as snowboarding. So I chose boarding for him. After some lessons from John over the last couple years and a lesson from a real instructor, I'm getting much better. #goals
We rescheduled our anniversary weekend 3x for a number of reasons. This was one of them. 3rd winter in CO happened in the middle of March. 2 feet of snow. I took the boys to the pool this day-- before it was snowing hard core (pool is just 1/2 mile from our house) and I got stuck in John's car on the way home. It was crazy. I ended up having John come to the end of our road and take the boys home via sled ride. We left his car at the end of our road for a day until we could dig it out. Crazy.
The sun came out the day after and the snow was gone within 48 hours. Crazy Colorado weather.
