Hey Friends 🙂

As you may remember, John and I celebrated our 11th wedding Anniversary this week. Woo Hoo!



Years ago, our wonderful marriage mentors suggested that John and I take time away once each season to reconnect, enjoy each other’s company, have fun, and relax. We’ve graciously accepted the challenge! And whereas we’ve not been perfect at getting away once a season, John and I have been intentional about going on “mini-moons” as often as we can ~ especially to celebrate our Anniversaries!

So this past weekend, we enjoyed a special Anniversary “mini moon” to….(any guesses??)

After checking out lots of great ideas from my friends, I selected Traverse City. (Last year, John picked ~ so this year was my turn! He likes boats, water, etc.. I like fancy hotels and Starbucks nearby). I did try to compromise 🙂

We enjoyed our time at the Grand Traverse Resort. Here’s a view from our balcony…



And a view from Aries, a restaurant located on the 16th floor.

But don’t worry ~ John still was able to see lots of boats (I just didn’t have to ride them across Lake Michigan this year!)



I enjoyed some cherry pie (since we were in the Cherry capital of the world!)





And John was sweet and brought me a latte in the morning 🙂 The art of compromise!



John and I have both enjoyed our mini-moons over the past 11 years of marriage! A special thank you to our marriage mentors, Doug and Judie Childress, for giving us the challenge many years ago! (And for my parents for watching the 4 kids, and my inlaws for keeping the dog ~ bless you!!!!)



What about for you?? What’s the best nuggest of marriage wisdom you’ve received?? I’d love to hear from you!!



Thanks for stopping by *She Sparkles*. Have a wonderful, joy-filled day!!
