Weekend Getaway

This past weekend the hubs booked us a trip up to San Antonio for the long Memorial Day weekend! We were so blessed to get both Friday and Monday off of work so we headed up to "the big city" for a few days to celebrate both my birthday that was earlier this month and our upcoming 1 year wedding anniversary which is next weekend :) I can't tell you enough how wonderful it was to just get away and spend some time together, just the two of us. We usually spend most of our days either apart, as Mitchell is training during the week, or with friends on the weekends. As much as I love hanging out with our dear friends here in Del Rio, it was nice just to have some "us time" away from Del Rio.

As the food options in Del Rio are slim to none, we pretty much planned our entire trip around where we wanted to eat! Naturally we had to hit up our usuals like Chick-fil-a and Five Guys, but we also got to try some new places. The hubs and I were both so excited that we also got to meet up with a sweet couple who we have known since our time in Colorado. Catching up with Zane and Nichole made our trip even more wonderful.

For our double date we were referred to an AMAZING Italian pizza place called Dough. If you haven't eaten here and you are in the San Antonio area....go! Their pizza tastes exactly like what we had on our honeymoon last year in Italy. Not only is their food bought from local farmers, but it is also certified by the city of Naples as authentic Italian pizza. Needless to say, it was spectacular!

Other than our eating excursions we spent the rest of our weekend at the hotel pool, doing insane amounts of shopping, and just enjoying our time on the Riverwalk. We finished out the holiday at the lake on Monday, which was the perfect end to a great weekend! ...

I am so blessed to have been married to the man of my dreams for almost a year now. This past year has been filled with some of the best and worst moments of both our lives with many losses and many exciting milestones rolled into it. I can't wait to see what the next 50 years bring us, where we will go, and what we will accomplish together. God has blessed me exponentially and I can't wait to see what other blessings he pours out on Mitchell and I as we continue our lives together!
