Thank goodness for husbands who swoop in with the best plans just when you need it most. Josh in all his infinite wisdom booked us a night at the Inn in Chagrin Falls saturday for a little anniversary surprise and it was the most perfect timing. After the past two-ish weeks dealing with everyone having the flu at our house and getting very little sleep because of it, this was just what the doctor ordered.
After we checked in we wandered around town a bit before the cold eventually drove us back inside. It's the most charming little town with lots of small independent shops that are always good for window shopping. We had a VERY delicious and super laid back dinner at the village martini and wine bar and then took ourselves over to the movies to see American Hustle. (And yes I'd recommend it, because duh...Jennifer Lawrence).
We had so much fun we decided to make this an anniversary tradition from here on out. Maybe not this exact evening again, but rather than gifts we decided a night away together like this every January is a far better use of our money and it feeds our relationship far more than a new wallet or a fancy pair of shoes ever will.
What a good night. What a good seven years! I love that man.
