stepping out of the ordinary

We did so many things over the weekend that we haven't done in a long time, and some things we've never done at all... Left the kids with an overnight sitter, rented a room in a fancy schmancy hotel chalk full of Italian elegance, wore fake eyelashes (go big or go home, right?) and too much makeup, sat at an adults only table and used real silver, held hands, laughed like teenagers, watched fireworks, and attended a Navy Ball.

It was our first and probably last Navy Ball as we begin whispering goodbye and saying thank you to the Navy... Only 8 or 9 more months, people.  We'll talk about that, later. I'm still reminiscing my extraordinary weekend.


  1. My goodness, what a beautiful couple! And what a beautiful setting to place them in! Love it! Hope you had a fabulous time. Love and kisses, today is our anniversary. Still no decision on where to go or what to do. Maybe the Davenport for DinDin.

  2. I agree...the joy, beauty, and splendor just radiate out of this post. Cheers to you both...a well-deserved celebration. :) Excited to see you stateside!
