Hi Friends!! Welcome to Marriage Monday! My dear friend Julie from Come Have A Peace takes time each Monday to share Marriage encouragement, and I’m pleased to join in the fun today!
If you knew a couple getting married and wanted to pass along a “nugget of wisdom” with them, what would you suggest??
One of the best pieces of advice John and I received was the idea of mini couple getaways, or what we refer to as “mini-moons” (get it…like honeymoon, but just “moon” ~ smile).
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!
This past weekend, we enjoyed a special Anniversary “mini-moon” to….(any guesses??)
Have you been on the Lake Express ferry before? It’s the craziest thing ~ you can drive your car right on the ferry! John and I opted to rent a car in Wisconsin, but it was quite the adventure riding on the Lake Express across the big Lake!
Although I’m smiling in the picture above (kind of) ~ I found I can’t hide sea-sickness very well. I spent most of the ride on the back of the boat with saltine crackers ~ praying the ride would be over!
And the Port Washington Inn Bed and Breakfast where we stayed was delightful! The views of the lake from Port Washington are beautiful ~ even for a non lake girl like me!
What about for you?? What’s the best nuggest of marriage wisdom you’ve received?? I’d love to hear from you!! And for more Marriage encouragement, be sure to check out fabulous tips here.
