Justin recently had a 3 day weekend that became a 5 day weekend at the last minute.
We tried to do Boston.
But the only vacancy Boston had to offer at the last minute was the Holiday Inn.
For $320 a night.
Umm, first of all, what?! And secondly, no thanks.
We'll save Boston for another time when $320 garners somethng a little more authentic.
But we still wanted to get away for a few days. We tried Cold Springs, NY in the Hudson Valley.
Then Justin jokingly said, We should go to Ohio.
I gave a half-hearted laugh and said something like yeah that'd be awesome.
Later that day, I was chatting with Candis and told her the outrageous Holiday Inn tale when she said,
Well, where are you guys going to go?
I paused and said, I can't believe I'm going to tell you this... but Justin mentioned Ohio.
Two days later we were there.
Eating Jeni's ice cream, taking pictures of Westley's every move, laughing 'til there were tears and confirming what we'd known for a long time...
that our husbands would love each other.
We came home rested and happy and thankful.
Those Joneses are famous in our book.
Beat that, Holiday Inn.
