So the hubs and i just had our 2nd anniversary this past Monday and it was an awesome day for us. We decided that since we never really had a honeymoon or special vacation together (aside from a wkend away, or as my pals would say mini-break, here and there) that we would book a B&B in the finger lakes on the Sunday night before our anniversary. It was called The Acorn Inn- it was the first and only place I liked when we were looking at B&Bs. Hi, I'm Meg and I have a slight o.c.d about clean/nice hotels and inns. We stayed in the Barn Suite which is the detached structure behind the Inn. It was fab.u.lous.

The lady who owns and operates it was super nice and friendly and obviously has great taste. Thanks Sheryl! And sweet mama, breakfast was to die for- creme brulee, brioche french toast sprinkled with powdered sugar and strawberries. I wish we had gotten a picture of it... it was a thing of beauty! We had such a relaxing time- but as most parents know, we were itching to get back to our peanut!!
While we were there we realized how much we are zooming through life and not really taking the time to appreciate all we have. Some days we are so engrossed in the routine.. work, lunch, gym, home, errands, dinner, tub, bed... it's like we are going through the motions sometimes. The time away made us realize that we need to be present in every moment and switch things up to keep us all feeling refreshed and aware of all we have to be so grateful for. And once you make a realization like that, the universe brings it home with all sorts of hints. On the radio this morning I heard a psychic/author talking about the importance of appreciating. If we aren't appreciating the wonderful things in our lives... they may not be yours for very long.
"The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly."
