valentine's weekend cabining


eight years we've spent valentine's day together! but this past saturday brought us our very first valentine's day as husband and wife. we rented a cabin in Chattanooga for the weekend and were so, so excited to sort of skip town for a teeny little bit. i love, love super love times like those. we both do. i also really love my documenting and looking back and really remembering the big and little moments, because life just gets ahead of us. all. the. time! but so many moments are all right here. and i think that is so neat. february always used to be a confusing month for heart. it's the month of love, and i like my love. but it was also always the month austin left for the forever long baseball season [sometimes the day after valentine's day]  actually, the last time we rented a cabin was two years ago. and while i shared a little bit of it, i never got around to sharing all the moments i snapped on that camera of mine, it's actually still saved as a draft! ha. but my heart wasn't really ready to re-live it then because i was coming off such a fun, fun weekend and dreading the inevitable baseball goodbye that awaited us a few days later. you sort of wish you could jump back in time, hug yourself real quick and say, it will be o.k. !! in two years, you will be at another cabin! and you will be celebrating as husband and wife!  

i could talk about feelings forever. that's me. i feel things so deely. and i'm pretty okay about it all. but!!  moving right along, we traveled to Chattanooga on friday with a car fuuuuulll of food. we ate the biggest crab legs i have ever seen and i don’t know if austin has ever been more excited or happier about food. it was soo good. sooo good! we ventured into Chattanooga the next morning and explored the city. stopping at the aquarium, which i haven’t gotten to do in years! they had penguins. and if the aquarium had allowed me, i would have taken one home. they were the cutest little tuxedo babes ever. i can only imagine charlies reaction if he were to meet one face to face. 

speaaaaaking of my littlest valentine!!! he is truly a water dog through and through. he loved on the hot tub so much. as soon as the top came off, he would be walking up the steps and headed in. ha. so cute to watch. unfortunately, he's not as human as he likes to think and eventually the time came for us to drag him on out so he wouldn't melt away in there. there was a hot tub at the last cabin we rented - charlie was five months old then and it was the first time we had a chance to introduce him to water. we put him in the hot tub [when it wasn't on] and he wanted o.u.t! fast forward two years, a lot of puppy swimming in lakes and rivers and he couldn't get in fast enough :)

so! v-day! year eight, it was a really good one. it's so good for the soul to venture out of your normal surroundings, together. they touched on that at church last week and i really couldn't agree anymore. also i love my valentines <3 the end.
