Yes, we are still married ~ no, the weekend was not last weekend...it was 4 months ago.
Remember I said I was trying to get caught up?
And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. (NIV)
Don't we still look 20 and 23?
OK - maybe not.
We spent our anniversary weekend in Sedona. Tim let me have free reign over all the plans. I'm so lucky!
Friday night was dinner at Picazzo's Pizzaria. If you've never had pizza there...go try it! It is organic and gluten free (so I can eat there!), and I really like it there! Then back to the room for endless hours of TV! We don't have cable in our house. If you live in Camp Verde that translates into...no reception! We take full advantage of ignoring each other and having our own tvs (Tim in the living room ~ me in the bedroom. We had a 1 bedroom suite)! Not romantic...but a lot of fun. I ended up falling asleep early!
After sleeping in on Saturday morning, we made a quick trip to Safeway for bagels and fruit then we headed to a hike that I've been wanting to try. Devil's Bridge. It was an amazing hike. So much fun!
Back to the hotel for a quick swim while TIM MADE LUNCH FOR ME!!! Margheritta pizza. (Have you figured out what my favorite food is?) More cable tv watching...reading...napping...total relaxation!
Saturday night's dinner was at Dahl & DiLuca. Our concierge made the reservation for us. It was heavenly! We had a private booth with a curtain to keep us secluded from the rest of the restaurant, and they sprinkled rose petals on the table. Very sweet. The food was great. Tim is ready to go back again, but after exploring the restaurant after dinner, we decided that we want to sit "in the open" next time. The ambience is very open and friendly.
Sunday brought another hike (Bear Sign Trail)...this one was leisurely. Very leisurely....almost boring! Time spent with my honey is always nice though. (Yes, I was a bad girl...I broke our tradition of trying a new church each location we visit. Being in the beauty and splendor of God's glory both days though...I totally felt Him with us.)
Back to reality...and here's to another 18 years...
This last October, Tim and I spent the weekend in Sedona for our 18th wedding anniversary.
We love the location because it is close to home (which means less driving and more quality alone time), and it offers a variety of hikes for me to explore!
Saturday morning I chose "Devil's Bridge"
This is the bridge from below. Isn't it absolutely amazing?
The truly amazing part is how it is being held up...
the rock formation on the right is simply a bunch of rocks piled together. It just doesn't seem sturdy...
and yet, we kept moving forward!
Here's Tim...exploring the crevices along the trail.
I love the red rock of Sedona.
You can see so much history!
Awww...aren't we cute?
Here we made it to the top of the Bridge.
Tim is on the far side simply "being still with God."
It was very awe inspiring...when at the top, I just wanted to sit and listen.
It was spiritual in the God sense, not the whole crystal cruncher sense.
Christ "is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him." (Colossians 1:15-16)
Do you see the crevice to the left of Tim?
What exactly is there to hold this huge slab of rock up and together?
Here we are below again...on our way out.
OK - here is the bridge...now look above it to that weird looking rock...I made Tim find a way to get there...
I'm a working, Christian mom of four beautiful children. My children are a mixed up group! Mixed gender (boys and a girl), mixed family (biological and adopted), and mixed race (caucasian, caucasian/hispanic, and hispanic). My daughter is 16, brilliant, and athetic. Tyler, our wonder with dimples, is four, highly intelligent, and loves to watch tv/movies (when he is allowed). Aiden and Isaiah, aka: the "Littles" / aka: "The twins" are two. Aiden is lovable and solid as a tank. Isaiah is stubborn and hard-headed!
I am a wife to a wonderful husband who loves the Lord, and provides for our family. He is often found trying to keep me happy by tearing down walls, adding on rooms, and just plain remodeling our home, and he is the President for our local school board.
