We celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary this month. It was by far the best mini vacation we've had. We had so much fun! We stayed at a lodge a couple of minutes away from the top of the mountain. The room included a jacuzzi tub! The people were super nice and the food there was awesome!
This is our bed.
The rooms weren't huge but perfect for the two of us!
I'm getting ready to leave for breakfast and then off to the mountain!
Jake is waiting for breakfast.
The food was made fresh and didn't sit under a heat lamp!
We had a blast on the tube run.
At the top.
A trip to the mountain would not be complete without snowboarding.
Sadly this is my only picture!
On my second run down I took the lift with less people on it.
It turns out it was to the top.
We stuck to our traditional Applebee's for dinner. It was where we had our first date. We go there every year. We can sit, talk for hours, and people watch! The appetizer was amazing, our main course was pretty good, and the dessert topped off a great night. Although I have to say the best part about this year was our entire bill was comped. Good food. Good times. Good company. No charge (except a fat tip).
I always think it is fun to see where the "world" thinks your marriage should be at. There are articles about "the 7 year itch", "will it last", and "love 'em or leave 'em". I was shocked at how negative people view marriage. I felt bad for people that didn't have what I have. A happy healthy marriage. So after skimming through some different links I found this. If you don't want to read it there are five things to rate yourselves on. Date night (check), financial status (check - we're getting there), in-law involvements (check - thank goodness for amazing in-laws on both sides), recreational activities (check), and sex life (check - TMI right?!).
Then I look up articles on LDS.org about marriage. There is a great talk from Russell M. Nelson on Nurturing Marriage. Click here. I loved it. It leaves you at peace (especially reading all the negative worldly advice). It also gives great advice but more on a spiritual end on nurturing a marriage.
Eternity doesn't sound so bad.
