Guess What He Got Me?

He bought me a "bed and breakfast" date night at the Glen Eyrie Castle with him.  My husband is so thoughtful!    
 This is one of our favorite places to visit on the west side of Colorado Springs.  I like to take the girls here for a Sunday special tea time.  However, I have never got to spend the night in the castle.  We are on the 3rd floor and have a beautiful view to the north/west. 
 I am sitting at this window typing, while listening to the sounds of the birds as they prepare for the night time.  

 Steve and I walked the beautiful grounds and prayed and talked.  Then we headed to a restaurant up the road in the foothills for a supper beside the river...PERFECT. 
I am so grateful for this time to rest with my husband.  I can't believe how quiet it is here. Because it is an "off" season time, I think that we may be the only ones here tonight.  How very special!  
"All my children at home, thank you for letting mommy and daddy have this special time together."

  9. Ooohhh...I love the Castle! We stayed there once. It's an amazing place. :) My parents were just there a week or so ago--probably just missed you. They were there for a marriage retreat with a reunion group. So glad you were able to go and spend some time with your husband!
