A few weeks ago my husband and I decided that we needed some time away. Just us, and since it was fast approaching February why not celebrate my birthday in Seattle. My husband got us a room at the Monaco Hotel in Seattle. We had planned to go out to dinner Friday night. My husband said we’d just find something and I knew you can always find a place so I went with it.
Then we got ready to go out, my husband said “there’s a ton of restaurants down this way.” I went along with it. I hopped in the cab and smiled at him as he held open the door. We then went “down that way.” Then I saw Camera World and joked about just going to look at stuff, next thing I know I looked up and say the Space Needle. Without thinking I said “let’s go up there!” Why not? We had wanted to go up during our trip anyhow so why not.
As we walked toward the doors he turned to me and said.
“Well actually we have reservations at 5:15”
And so began my perma grin.
What a wonderful surprise it was.
We enjoyed one of the most enjoyable dinners I’ve ever had and it is something I will never forget.
Here’s how the rest of our weekend went.
