Day Trippin' - A daily dose of romance

Ok ya’ll, remember how I talked about our family’s love of road trips and trying new places to eat? Well we did just that today. We headed up to the Hammett House in Claremore, Oklahoma and enjoyed a late lunch. A little slice of heaven can be spelled, Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Pie. I’ve included a picture so feel free to drool to your heart’s content. And yes, it really is as big as it looks…7 inches tall!

As for the romance... I love having my hubby next to me as we head out for a new adventure. The excitement of breaking away from our normal lives and trying something different draws us closer while giving us the opportunity to share what’s going on in our hearts and minds.

But this time our car ride was quiet. No talking. Or at least very little. I can’t say why, we weren’t mad, the kids weren’t fighting and we haven’t seen much of each other lately because of dear hubby’s travel schedule. So we should’ve had every reason to spill, but instead we chose this day trip to simply sit back, enjoy the scenery and each other’s company in silence.

Now ladies, there’s a lot to be said for being comfortable enough with your spouse that you can spend hours in the car together, not say a solitary word and yet still have a wonderful time. Talk about true love!

We had a delightful day. The weather was perfect, the food delicious and we rounded out the day by taking in the Will Rogers Memorial. A fun day for everyone!

Now that we’re back home, relaxing in the final daylight hours of the evening I feel blessed to be married to a man whose company I enjoy whether we’re busy chatting or whether we’re quiet and contemplative. And well, it’s a major bonus that he’s willing to spend hours in the car just to share a piece of heaven!

Should you feel the need, based on the picture, to duplicate our trip, take a peek at the Hammett House website.

Until next time,
Many blessings ~ Amy
