West Virginia, wild and wonderful.
As I mentioned in my previous post, Jimmy and I went to Wheeling, WV for a one-night getaway. It was our first vacation since our honeymoon, and I was beyond excited! We headed out to Wheeling after work on Friday evening, and stayed until Saturday afternoon. Not a super long trip by any means, but it was perfect for us.
We went out to eat, checked into our hotel, visited Cabelas (a super big outdoors/hunting retail store), and relaxed in the hotel’s hot tub on Friday night. We talked about everything and nothing at the same time, and it was lovely. I truly enjoy just being with my husband, you know? We can be sitting together, not talking or doing anything, and I really cherish those moments of togetherness.
After a good night’s sleep, we woke up on Saturday morning and ate breakfast (and drank lots of coffee!) at the hotel. I read my devotions book and the newspaper. I love reading the newspaper wherever I travel! After breakfast, we decided to get back in the hot tub. Yeah, we were in that hot tub at 8:30 AM! It felt so good to just do nothing for once.
After getting ready for the day, we wandered around Wheeling, stopping in a bookstore and Petco to look at kittens for adoption. This is dangerous for me to do–both the bookstore browsing and looking at kittens, ha.
We grabbed lunch at Bob Evans, and then made the trek home in time to mow the lawn and head out to see a friend in a musical. It was a lovely little getaway, and very relaxing. I’m glad I blogged about this so I can look back and remember our first little vacation together!
