Last year Tim had a recruiting event at BYU in Provo, UT. He got to stay in a beautiful cabin at the Sundance resort (where we got engaged) with a cozy fireplace and solely enjoying all the romantic settings that come with that. During that trip over the phone he told me, "Next time, you are coming with me." So this year I did!
It was perfect timing for a much needed R&R for this exhausted mommy of four. The day before we left Darren was a complete nightmare and the only thing that was holding me together was the thought that I was going to wake up the next day and have a complete break from the kid. :)
The best things for rejuvenation for me during this quick trip were: the sounds of real wood crackling and popping in our cozy cabin, fresh mountain air, and beautiful scenery. I kept making comments how beautiful everything was and Tim would just laugh and say, "Who are you??" Maybe a change of pace from my crazy mommy schedule had this non-nature loving chick extra sensitive to my surroundings!
In the morning we took a quick walk down to our favorite restaurant, The Foundry Grill, for a fresh, yummy breakfast. It was almost 10 years ago Tim took me out for dinner and then for dessert for my birthday at this romantic restaurant and then surprised me right outside by proposing to me! We have come back to this restaurant many times over since then. It holds a very special place in our hearts.
