Anniversary Weekend

Chris and I spent a long weekend outside of Durango in this wonderful Bed and Breakfast.

Our 4 year anniversary happens to be about two weeks before Haven is due, so in the interest of comfort and companion ability (that means so I'm not cranky), we decided to go this past weekend just in case we have an early arrival.

It was incredibly relaxing as well as beautiful and the breakfasts (the best thing about B&B's if you ask me) were yummy. Chris was able to get up at the crack of dawn, make coffee in the room, and read--this is his favorite morning routine. Mine is to lay in bed until I think it is sufficiently light out to justify getting up. Especially now when sleep is somewhat elusive. Our room was beautiful, the view was incredible, but I'd say our favorite thing was the jacuzzi tub and the heated bathroom floors. What a luxury to have your toes heated while you wait for your bath to warm up!

On our last night we found a sushi restaurant to eat at. I was slightly skeptical about sushi in Colorado, but apparently it was quite good--I ate vegetarian rolls, so I can't confirm this. Chris ordered the biggest dish of sashimi on the menu. The bowl was huge. At one point he was down to his last two pieces: a slice of salmon and a slice of octopus. There is only one meal in which he eats slower than I do, and that is when we go out for sushi. The decision over which piece should end the night in his mouth is apparently an agonizing one. I looked over at him, having already finished my meal, and saw him with a perplexed look on his face, shaking his head over which piece he should save for last. It made me laugh because I knew exactly what he was struggling over even though he hadn't told me. So, I had to take a picture.

He really is the cutest thing. I'm lucky to have spent the last four years of my life with him. Besides being one of the most helpful and loving husbands I know, he makes me laugh. And that rates pretty highly up there with me.
