I finally got my "one day"

Do you remember this post??  I said there's ONE THING  I would really, really LOVE to have?
Well, my darling husband  gave it to me on my 30th birthday!

He surprised me with a day all to myself at a beautiful beach resort. Its almost a month since that day, but I still feel all warm fuzzy when I think of that wish come true.  So what did I do with my day??

Well, I got a massage at the hotel spa, lunch buffet with the GM (family friend), and then I read the light historical fiction book I had checked out from the middle school library. I proceeded to fall asleep while reading! Ah the joy of that... when the story you are reading tangles itself among your dreams! When I woke up from sweet slumber about an hour later, I lay awake, counting my blessings. Then I watched a movie I had brought with me, went down to the pool for a swim  where I met 2 colleagues and a couple of students from my school. I took a lazy shower, took my time to get dressed, lounged around the room, ordered coffee and read while I waited for my husband who had just earned himself a million dollar deposit in the love bank!

We enjoyed a lovely dinner with our best friends, and just when I thought I had all the surprises my heart could handle, he gave me another one - an ipad mini with a pink smart cover as well!

This picture was taken the next morning, at our room. Yes, I'm playing with my new ipad there!

So, I got my "one day" and I spent it exactly the way I had hoped. The memory of that day will keep me going until the next one!

P.S   He also arranged for me to have a pastry making lesson with the executive chef the next day!
