My husband is hopeless romantic. I absolutely love him for it. He has brought me so much Joy. I think I smile so often because I from laughing at him over one of a million silly things he does. He has captured my heart and continues to day after day. Once again he has swept me away this week on a romantic getaway and adventure. I found out late Sunday that we were leaving Wednesday morning for two days. No warning, just it’s set so clear your calendar. He does however, offer me 5 clues over the next two days. Mostly to hint at what to bring and a few insights into what we might be doing. Friends helped me figure out the where which was awesome.
So here is what went down. We left early Wednesday morning to catch our flight to Seattle. A BMW rental car was waiting for us when we arrived. I did raise an eyebrow, Keith was very excited. We sped off to the Four Seasons where we checked in, grabbed some lunch, then had a date at the spa. Couples massages are so very fun. I got my favorite, an 80 minutes hot rock massage. After the most relaxing massage of my life we got some pool time in and virgin margaritas then love making before dinner.
I admit I love sex. Intimate, naughty, tender, slow, quickie. It’s all good. Having time, being alone with your love, no kids to interrupt and having him making you gasp, moving in you and gently kissing your neck, ears, forehead and lips. I am loved and I feel safe. He has my heart and I trust him with it. The best unspoken words ever expressed are from those gentle slow thrusts. I love you Keith.
We had dinner reservations at The Butcher’s Table. As a foodie I give this steak house 4 out of 4 stars. My Filet Mignon was perfect. Service and atmosphere were top notch plus the dessert! They even had live music.
After dinner we hit the Space Needle. It’s way way up there to the observation deck. I love the city lights. Something about how the light bathes the darkness. It’s just surreal. Very beautiful and romantic.
Thursday we had an extra hour to sleep in. Climbed out of bed at 7:30 and grabbed breakfast before heading out for our adventure. We left early to make sure we had time as it’s about 90 minutes out to the Skykomish River. Nine miles of class III and IV rapids with one section called the Boulder Drop which is class V. It was insanely fun. I was laughing so hard. I managed to not drown yesterday which is a positive. I did lose my paddle. These rapids are a bit more extreme than Moab rapids. I got very very wet. Not that kind of wet but my teeth were chattering. Once the adrenaline wears off it was a bit chilly. They took us back to our meeting place and had a BBQ sandwich for dinner. We had to get back to Seattle, showered and dressed up for the Seattle Symphony performing Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone at Benaroya Hall. The place was amazing. Got ready crazy fast and there in time to get seated. We were on the Founders Tier so had a view from above. Incredible seats. Here is a pic of Benaroya Hall and of the Symphony with this huge screen with the movie behind them. It was Epic!
It was a truly surprising and unexpected 48 hours. Nice mix of chill, relaxation and adventure. We flew home and getting ready for the Birthday party tonight. It should be pretty fun. Lots of friends. Ribs, homemade fries, homemade lemonade, several cakes including the soda pop cake, German chocolate and Bad Ass Double Chocolate plus homemade ice cream. If I have to be 29 I might as well do it in style! 😇
