on our way out

Geo and I are in Phoenix for a few days, staying with some people who are pretty darn important to me.  It has been a while since we got away together, and to say I was looking forward to a different venue for a few days would be an understatement.

On the way to the airport we stopped for some ribs and sweet potato fries (oh, how I love sweet taters).

We held hands and talked and Geo got a bit messy from the ribs.  

Sometimes you (I) can get a little robotic in life.  
Get it done.  Check it off.  Move to the next thing.  
I need hiccups to keep me in check.  

This guy is a great partner to me.  He keeps me grounded.  Gently steps on the brakes when needed.  And often sits back and observes so that when I ask for advice he is ready to give it to me.

That is a beautiful thought.

I need a couple of hiccups right now.

Your relationship with your husband is one of the sweetest things I've ever seen. :)

So Awesome! There is nothing more exciting than a hiccup to keep us on our toes.

when I got married I made a dumb newlywed rule not having a clue what real life would bring. One night alone and a new temple every year. Best dumb thing I ever did!!! The switch up and time to sit in a unfamiliar temple is bliss. Real life can wait.

I'm married to a guy like that too. What a gift it is.

Travel safe and happy!

I recently had sweet potato fries and they rocked my tastebuds. Wow.

I love the tender words you described your husband like. Men like that are priceless.

Someone who can brake you and not break you is a blessing.
