Tuesday, February 10
Johnny and I had a rare weekend off from playing shows with the band this weekend, so we packed as much fun in as we could. Friday night we had some wonderful friends over for pizza and game night. Saturday, we spent every last moment we could out in the sunshine with the girls. The weather was unseasonably warm and sunny, and was the perfect treat in the middle of winter here in the MidWest. Johnny and I had the opportunity to get away on Sunday and part of Monday, so we dropped the girls with the grandparents and road tripped to St. Louis. Here are some highlights.
My family is from St. Louis, so we know our way around pretty well. We ate a TON of food (of course- that's what traveling is about!), did some shopping, went bowling, and just enjoyed not having anywhere to be for a couple of days. I called this a "makeup anniversary trip" since we canceled ours in December due to hectic schedules, but the truth is, you shouldn't need an excuse to make time for weekend getaways or day dates. One-on-one time is important. Oh, and being able to have a conversation without interruption is priceless. xo.
