After five nights, our friends, John and Michelle left yesterday. But not before creating fun memories and having lots of laughs together. On Monday, we spent the day at the beach, soaking in the sun.
By the way, Carl and I celebrated our 35th anniversary of meeting this week.
Four years of college, 31 years of marriage, 3 children, 3 dogs, 6 interstate moves and we still like each other! God has certainly blessed us. I’m so grateful for these past 35 years!
On Tuesday, the husbands played golf and fished.
Meanwhile, Michelle and I enjoyed a spa day with massages, manicures and pedicures while enjoying cheese and wine. Such a fun day, thanks to a Groupon deal.
Since the ladies were in no mood for cooking after our day of pampering, we went out to eat, thanks to John and Michelle’s treat.
The next day, we started with a nice 4 mile walk. Since a donut and coffee break was included in the middle, I had to tag along that time.
Afterwards, we shared the cost of a Stand-up Paddleboard rental for our second beach day.
Since it was a little choppy and I apparently have really bad balance skills, I opted to have Carl paddle me around.
The next morning we returned to the beach and since it was smooth as glass, I was able to ride around on my own, which was so fun. Carl even got within 15 feet of dolphins! Very exciting!
We also enjoyed sunsets, cocktails, games and meals together.
I am so happy to have friends to share a special time away together.
And I’m grateful I’ve got this guy by my side for the past 35 years. Happy anniversary of meeting, Carl! What a great vacation together with friends.
