Today is George’s and my twenty-seventh anniversary. To celebrate we’ll be leaving in less than an hour for an exotic vacation in (drum roll please) Fort Worth, Texas! Woo-hooo!
First stop will be UT Arlington’s art gallery. Our friend, Adam Werner, is graduating with a degree in painting, and we’re going to see his exhibit. Then we’ll be joining him, his wife, and other well-wishers at a graduation party at Rahr & Sons Brewery in Fort Worth. To top off the evening, we decided to book a room at a romantic B&B five minutes from the brewery. They’re giving us the “Sunshine of My Life” room. The bath has a heart-shaped jacuzzi tub–a feature which has already afforded George and me more than a little amusement. We decided it would be fun to fill it with bubble bath, then set the self-timer on our camera and pose in the bubbles with champagne glasses uplifted in a toast. We would then send the photo to our children, looking forward to the day when we’ll receive thank-you notes from overpaid therapists who are helping them overcome their trauma.
Saturday, after enjoying a lovely breakfast delivered to our room (and most likely eaten in the heart-shaped jacuzzi tub–gotta make the most of this exotic vacation), we’ll pick up Luke at DFW airport, make a run to Whole Foods, and head back to East Texas.
Luke will be home for ten days. While he’s here we’ll celebrate Jacob’s 25th birthday, go to Jesse Miga’s wedding, and basically bask in extended episodes of familial fellowship. In other words, we’ll hang out.
Stop by and hang with us if you’re in the neighborhood. ♥
