Day 17: Something You're Looking Forward To
Well, my first thought was Heaven. :) My second thought was seeing my loved ones who have passed in Heaven. :) Then I decided I'd be a little less serious-minded today, and tell you about a completely worldly and frivolous thing I'm looking forward to...
Our anniversary trip to a DUDE RANCH!!! :)
No, your eyes did not deceive you, I said dude ranch. :)
Back story: Each year, we take a trip on our anniversary. First year: North Carolina (Asheville, Boone, Blowing Rock).
Second year: NYC!
Third year: (B&B in Goodlettsville, TN-ok, Levi was a couple months old and we didn't want to go too far or spend a bunch of money-haha. However, this Bed and Breakfast was amazing! We would highly recommend it: http://www.thistletopinn.com/)
We have a list of places we want to go on future trips, and one requirement is that we've never been there before. Well, dude ranch is on that list!
We thought we'd have to go out west to fullfill this dream (and "out west" is still on our list), but alas, there's one in East Tennessee! Who woulda thunk it?! We also thought we'd never be ablet to afford it (dude, dude ranches are expensive). However, I bought a package for HALF PRICE off http://www.livingsocial.com/ (check it out!), and so we're going!
The place is called French Broad River Dude Ranch, and we are so excited! Rustic (but nice) rooms, fishing, whitewater rafting, "grub" and of course, horseback riding! I can not WAIT to spend 3 days at this place, just me and the hubby. I look forward to our anniversary and our time away all year long. I love Levi tremendously, but I think it's a neccessity for Jeffrey and me to have our alone time. We both agree that happy parents make a happy baby. And let me tell you, after 3 fun-filled days on a dude ranch with the hubby...I will be a happy momma! :)
