My husband is the best. He is a true romantic. Leading up to holidays and special occasions he always acts very nonchalant and gets a kick out of teasing me about what we are or aren't doing, but he always has multiple surprises up his sleeve and nothing makes him feel more pleased with himself than getting me to cry from joy and surprise.
Saturday morning started off with my usual routine; running, teach, walk the dog. Around 10 he called asking where I was because he needed to run to fedex for work, which is very believable. Moose and I headed to the bedroom for a nap and awoke to him in the kitchen telling me he needed a minute. I finally was allowed to come out and was given the most thoughtful gift. He not only made it but came up with the idea, a complete original! I was floored, impressed, and in awe. It is so beautiful. Our first year summarized in photos, and yes in the shape of a 1. I love it!
Around 2:30pm we headed downtown, all I knew was we were staying at a hotel. As we drove down Michigan Avenue we would pass hotels, Ryan would name the hotels as we passed and then laugh saying, "NOPE." We finally arrived at the Peninsula Hotel! I felt like we were truly on a vacation, a very fancy vacation at that.
On Friday afternoon Ryan stopped by the hotel dropping off a second gift and my card. Upon entering the room there was a bottle of wine, chocolate covered strawberries sitting on marshmallow pillows and a little pink box. We celebrated and headed out for a long walk around the city. Dinner at a fancy restaurant, followed by cocktails at trendy bars and sitting unders the stars. We woke this morning to no alarms, watching TV in bed, and ordering room service...that's what I call a perfect morning.
Ryan got me to cry twice throughout the day=success to him. It was an amazing weekend. He surprised me and made me feel so special. What a great man.
We arrived home this afternoon and picked up Moose to head to the lakefront.
All in all it was a perfect weekend.
Oh and after dinner tonight we did what everyone tells you not to do but we defrosted our wedding cake topper and ate it...IT WAS DELICIOUS! We were shocked.
