Decisions...

Where to even begin?

My husband lovingly surprised me for my birthday with a trip to a beautiful estate and spa. Who IS this man? How did he find the one place that I would adore and actually take me there? He somehow did it, planned the whole thing by himself AND had arranged for his mom to keep the kids overnight for the first time. He would NOT tell me where we were going, so I just had to wait..until we arrived. The gorgeous autumn leaves falling all around us from the trees on this gorgeous estate. It was out in the middle of nowhere! So, we pulled up and Matt says, "go on down there..you have an appointment for a massage.." I started to cry. I have never had anyone plan such a beautiful surprise for me in my life! I was so glad to have the break from home, some alone time with him and it being in this glorious place that a few minutes before I had no clue even existed? That was the topping on the cake. So to speak, of course. We had exquisite meals provided and ate and drank to our hearts content. Of COURSE I had some chocolate too. Duh, it's my birthday. Anyway, wouldn't you all just kill for a husband to do this for you?

Well, fast forward a few days to my actual birthday and I completely melted down. That was yesterday, and today I am much better, but not completely fine yet. I will tell you why after tomorrow. We have a huge decision to make and I'll write all about it once it's made.
