so excited...

Greg just booked our Anniversary getaway today! We are going to Comfort, TX (the name says it all) to a little bed and breakfast called Haven River Inn. I have no idea where the kids are going to stay yet, but we've got time to figure that out. We will be going to the Haven River Inn ON our 7th Anniversary and staying two nights!!! YAY! I am so excited...can I go now!? The best part is that the Haven River Inn offers two free nights to full-time church workers! We can get away, relax and not break the bank! Their website makes me just want to drop everything and take a looks so relaxing! Here's a excerpt from the website:

"As you enter the Haven property, rows of pecan trees wave warmly as you ascend the hill upon which the stately fourteen bedroom mansion sits. Immediately, the majestic Guadalupe River comes into view bending slyly along one edge of the twenty three acre estate. The lawn speckled by shady oaks is perfectly suited for picnics or late-night stargazing, and the panoramic view can be enjoyed from a spacious wraparound veranda, which stands as the most complimented feature of this unique “B&B” experience.

Once inside the charming main house, you are transported back to the early 1900s when lumber tycoon, Albert Steves, built the house as his family’s summer home. From the ornate dining room to the high-ceilinged parlor, the house invites you to unwind in an atmosphere consistent with the original owner’s intent. Each of the fully renovated bedrooms blends the country elegance and lavish comfort which typifies this true Texas treasure. A frequent guest opined, “rocking on the porch at the Haven is as close to heaven as I am going to get here on earth.” "

Yay!! Looking forward to my next mini vacation!!!

Hey good for you! I actually just booked a 2 night trip to Door County yesterday. Dan and I have never gotten away (except when we were having a baby in the hospital) and we need it...or should I say I NEED it. I couldn't even wait a month...I booked it for the end of August. We don't know where the 5 are going yet, but at this point I don't care. Our 8 year, 5 kid marriage is in need of some alone time! Can't wait! Good thing to know we still think alike. However, your husband booked yours, I had to do mine! Be thankful you have a romantic one! At least yours is semi-free...thank God we have a credit this point I don't care!
Have a good one!
