An Anniversary Weekend Away

Zach and I realized this weekend that we really haven't had just a weekend away...Just the 2 of us!  He has gone somewhere or I have or we both have but different places...but not together in a long time!  I have to say it was 100% necessary...as I am sure all you other marrieds would agree.
Friday afternoon, Zach and I headed to Topsail, NC for a little getaway.  One of my great friends from high school got married this weekend there, so we jumped on the opportunity to spend a couple extra days to celebrate our 4th and relax.  It was WONDERFUL!

Topsail is like a hidden treasure.  I would go back there every year with the kids and family if we could.  Everything was so family friendly, low key and just the perfect beach vacation.  The condo we stayed at was on the beach and everything else was either a bike ride or short drive away.  And the beach was just awesome!
Zach and I slept in, relaxed, took walks on the beach, played cards, got ice cream...watched football....and we just reconnected!  Once you have children, time alone to remember your marriage comes first is a must and so hard sometimes.  It is difficult leaving the kids, but we come back better parents and have a chance to remind ourselves why we started this whole family in the first place!
 Sunday night, we got all dressed up and headed to a romantic dinner at Beauchaines....it was delicious!  Zach was in heaven because he got fresh seafood!
Thursday is our 4th Wedding Anniversary!  Yay for us!  What an amazing 4 years it has been...so happy at times and so hard at others...but hand in hand...we can do anything!  Love this man beyond what I ever thought possible!
