Today my husband gave me the gift of time, a massage and sleep for our anniversary. Greta and I are tucked away for the night at Springhill Suites in Florence, KY (which according to Pandora is a different country?)
Not sure what that’s all about… But fortunately the white noise app works so we won’t be rudely awoken by the proverbial drunken wedding party, or the like at 3am (which always seems to happen when staying at any hotel!?)
We enjoyed a nice soak in the hot tub in our room while we watched the WEBN fireworks on TV. (I feel like I’ve been in the bath tub all day long! Nora and I had a lengthy soak earlier in the day.)
Nora wasn’t able to join us on this Girl’s Trip. Greta and I were sad about that and we both miss her terribly. William has been sending us texts – but that makes is miss her even more! Maybe in a couple of years she’ll be able to come along.
I have to share some pictures of Nora from last night that Shauna took. I had to go back and look at these several times today. How can these not make you smile!!??
I selected a seemingly random Bible verse from the Bible app on my phone and it just so happens to be a verse that was mentioned in church this morning! Not so random, I guess!!
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. (Colossians 3:23-24 NIV)
I’m off to take advantage of my gift of extra sleep!! Thank you soooo much for this, William! We’re having an awesome time!!!!
Goodnight and God bless!
Yes…you are right….looking at the pictures…how can you not smile. Love the drawing by Greta!!!
So glad you got a little time! All of us could use it, especially us mothers of babies. I could use a bit myself right now!!!
A random note on the pandora thing. I recently lived in a hotel for 2 months while re- locating across the country with my husband, 3 yr old, and 2 month old. I got the same thing coming up on my pandora. If I remember correctly it does that if your phone is trying to connect to hotel wifi but you have not gone into your Internet app and accepted it or joined the wifi network. So next time either join the network or turn off the wifi on your phone to get pandora to work. The sleep station was a lifesaver during those 2 months living in the hotel!
Who was letting Nora take a nip? 🙂 Those are the drunkest eyes I have seen! She is so sweet and adorable!
ahhhhhh that smile when she is sleeping is priceless! What a wonderful husband you have!
GRETA, I TRULY LOVE THE PICTURE YOU DREW. YOU ARE QUITE AN ARTIST. ALEISA, I AM SO HAPPY YOU AND GRETA HAD GIRL’S NIGHT OUT. I THINK YOU BOTH NEEDED JUST MOMMY AND DAUGHTER TIME. FOR SURE YOU MISSED WILLIAM, GAVIN AND NORA, BUT WAS NICE JUST YOU AND GRETA. THANK YOU FOR SHARING THOSE WONDERFUL PICTURES. YES I DID SMILE A LOT WHILE LOOKING AT THEM. I THINK MY FAVORITE WAS WHERE SHE WAS SMILING SO SWEETLY IN HER SLEEP. SHE MUST HAVE BEEN HAVING REALLY A GOOD DREAM. SHE IS TRULY A DOLL BABY!!!! LOVE YOU ALL. GOD BLESS.
That verse was also mentioned in our service on Sunday.
