The weekend before our 2nd anniversary, my baby daddy and I took a little weekend getaway north of us to Santa Rosa, in Sonoma County. It was such a great weekend. We had so much fun just being the two of us, ignoring our phones and technology, eating really yummy food, and just relaxing. We took naps in the middle of the day, went on walks, laid by the pool, read books on the patio of our room, walked around downtown until we found a cute restaurant to eat dinner, went to a couple of wineries (for Chad to taste and for me to sniff and play wine connoisseur in my descriptive words), picnicked outside in the vineyard, and did I mention we took naps in the middle of the day??
If I could give anyone one piece of advice about marriage I would say marry someone you actually really like hanging out with. Seriously. Like you could spend days just being with them and have the best time ever. You don't always need to talk or make conversation, in those moments the silence is comfortable too. But being with them should definitely just feel good......and right. I digress.

Are you laughing yet future Brooke? Are you rolling your eyes because "I have no idea what it's like"? Is it impossible to do this when you have kids at home who take up your every thought and you and future Chad even like talking about them when they aren't around? Well, humor me and attempt conversation about something else after you get done with the 20th story of the "super cute thing (insert name) did the other day." Don't forget how much you liked talking and sharing with this man before you had kids! :)
