Wow, it has been one incredible year since hubby, and I said our “I DO’s.” One year of learning, growing, understanding, patience, respect, love, and building our relationship with God.
I will be the first to confess; I knew nothing of marriage before we got married. Being in a relationship and being married are two different things. What I have learned is that marriage is not a race. It’s not a fashion show nor a competition. Marriage, for me, is about patience.
On the morning of our anniversary, I asked my husband what’s one thing he learned during our first year of marriage? His short and deliberate response was “patience,” and I understood him very well. So to celebrate our one-year anniversary, we took an overnight trip to VA beach. Now, you might think we are crazy for taking a five-hour drive just to spend one night. But you must look at the whole trip.
The drive down was nothing short of love and deep conversations. We chatted, laughed, vibe to good music, and I even heard my husband rapping for the first time (FYI, we will put the rapping career on hold for later, lol).
For our stay, we stayed at the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Virginia Beach Oceanfront. We made the booking through hotels.com, and the price was very reasonable. The entire booking process was easy with no hassle.
Our room was very clean, the hotel offered us complimentary breakfast, and they were generous enough to allow us to shoot some content in their hotel without fussing. We also had free parking, which was a plus. The pool was a little small and overcrowded, but overall, the hotel was great. We had an oceanfront view which we loved a lot.
That night, we walked on the boardwalk, had dinner at Ocean Eddie’s Seafood Restaurant. I had this blue drink (I don’t recall the name) it was good. I had two glasses because it was just that good. Hubby did not enjoy the chicken tinder, which I understood why. It was undercooked. We spent the entire night just walking and chatting. It was a lovely time.
After our shoot that morning, we had brunch at DoughBoys, the pizza was good. We had half and half pizza and some chicken wings. Overall, the food was good.
We wrapped our trip up with a last-minute stroll on the boardwalk and drove back home. Overall, the trip was a time for us to reconnect and appreciate ourselves for making it to year one. Sometimes it’s appreciated to show each other love and personal care.
That’s it for today guys, see you in my next post.
