Our anniversary is coming up soon so we planned an overnight trip to celebrate.
We left Sunday morning and drove to Lancaster Pennsylvania, enjoying the pastoral scenes that are everywhere in this beautiful area.
After checking into a hotel, we headed to Longhorn Steakhouse for lunch using a gift card my daughter gave me for my birthday!
The reason for our early anniversary getaway was because I had bought tickets to see Michael W. Smith in concert.
Then, for a relaxed and inexpensive after-concert snack back at the hotel, I packed an easy picnic. Even though it looks complicated it went together quickly with just some cheese, crackers, jam, fruit and cookies. We set it up on the hotel coffee table and nibbled as we chilled and watched tv. We did this the last time we were away and it's fun.
But, by far the very best part of our getaway was a visit with a very sweet blogging friend and her husband. Judy (Just a little something for you!) and her husband, John, are warm and friendly and made us feel so welcome! They went out of their way to make the evening a most special one.
We instantly felt like old friends even though we had just met in person. Our husbands connected and we all sat and chatted about our kids and grandchildren and how the Lord blesses us with such abundance. What a blessing the evening was to us!
This thoughtful lady not only prepared a most delicious dinner and dessert, she even sent us home with a heart-shaped apple cake on a pretty plate along with a beautiful card she made so that I can add an anniversary photo of John and I.
Yes, she is too sweet!
