Mr. Right and I joke about having 100 honeymoons. In reality, for us, that looks like little nights or weekends away – sometimes far, sometimes in town – the place doesn’t matter nearly as much as the part where we escape from our everyday responsibilities and just enjoy each other. It’s a huge priority that we’ve made for our marriage.
This time we rented an adorable little 100-year-old house in the Fairmount District of Fort Worth, just 20 minutes from our home, to celebrate our third anniversary (read here about last year’s anniversary getaway). Mr. Right found it on AirBnB, which offers rentals all over the world, often at a fraction of the price of a hotel. Ours was a steal and within walking distance of one of the hot restaurants we’ve been wanting to try. (PS – we loved AirBnB so much we’ve already booked another trip with them later this spring – the next one we’re staying at is an old farmhouse on 90 acres – I can’t wait.)
Mr. Right knows me so well. Like, really knows me. When we got to our place Friday afternoon, the first thing he did was tell me to go take a bubble bath in the big clawfoot tub and then take a LONG nap. Having a 6-month-old makes you REALLY appreciate a long nap in a quiet house – it was glorious.
The rest of the trip was equally wonderful. We had a wonderful, leisurely dinner at Ellerbe Fine Foods, and the next morning we slept in and had brunch at Del Frisco’s Grille in a booth overlooking the new Sundance Square.
And then we went and picked up Baby Wrenn (who turned 6 months this weekend… bless!) and covered her with kisses and snuggled her the rest of the day. It was so good to have a night away with my love – our first night away from Wrenn – but now that we’re a family of three, it was so good for us to all be together again. That is, until the next honeymoon…
