On October 20th, 2007, Josh and I got married. We danced to "The Luckiest" by Ben Folds, our song, in front of all our friends and family. The message of that song is always feel lucky to have found each other. Life has thrown many things at us including infertility struggles, miscarriage, and the addition of our miracles: FOUR amazing boys. Our journey together, feeling like the luckiest no matter what, is written here.
He later shared with me that we would be spending a weekend away in Ann Arbor. I felt this was a thoughtful, smart, clever, and genius idea for so many reasons.
Ann Abor carries with it a lot of emotion for Josh and I all revolving around doctor's appointments. It reminds us of statistically bad news, lots of early mornings, blood work after blood work after blood work, ultra sounds after ultra sounds after ultra sounds, and a few surgeries mixed in. As you can see, those aren't positive memories.
For my birthday, Josh decided we should make positive memories in the city of Ann Abor. We should go and enjoy the city. He wanted us to experience Ann Arbor seperate from the Center for Reproductive Medicine. He also wanted us to be able to see Ann Arbor during the day as opposed to 7:00am when we usually are around.
How perfect :)
During the weekend, we went to the farmer's market, ate lunch at Zingerman's, walk around down town, played games, and did a lot of relaxing and exploring at our hotel.
I'm so thankful I have such a thoughtful husband who seemed to know just what would make the perfect present. Hoping for an amazing 29th year! :)
We stayed at Weber Hotel, which has meaning in of itself because we pass it every single time we drive down for an appointment. We've looked it up before and it seemed so beautiful so we've always jokes about staying there. Our room was great.
This is the pool area. We spent some time here swimming, relaxing, and playing some serious games of ping pong.
