jack and i got the rare chance to spend a couple nights away this weekend. i found a great deal on a hotel in south lake tahoe. cute little place with great access to plenty of things to see and do. we walked everywhere, ate lots of good food, and slept in two whole days in a row. some of my favorite nights with my husband are the really simple ones. it’s never really dinner reservations or tucked in shirts with us anyhow, but i like that i’m just as happy bundled up on a bench, people watching and sharing a beer out of a paper bag. i like that we can tangle ourselves in bed sheets talking and laughing, never once bothering to turn on the t.v. we drove up highway 88 on saturday afternoon, taking turns picking albums. we stopped to see a couple lakes and breathe in the mountains along the way. on the way back this afternoon we took the long way and caught the sunset on some of our favorite back roads. they sure are different, but it was peaceful end to a much needed breather.
