#3


What is that in the distance? It resembles the Emerald City a bit doesn't it?! Well, it was BETTER! Steve surprised me for our 3 year anniversary and took me to Savannah Georgia! Everything about it was absolutely perfect! A sister of a guy that he works with works at the Westin and we got our hotel room and all hotel food for half off!! WHAT A BLESSING! We seriously wouldn't have been able to attempt to go if we hadn't had that help. The hotel was beautiful! It was on Huntington Island, the only thing besides the hotel that was on the island was some big factory type building. Whenever we wanted to go into town, we'd take a 5 minute ferry ride across the water! It was like we were in another country; cobblestone walkways, European-style architecture, beautiful homes and many historic sites to see! We spent a lot of our 2 1/2 days there relaxing by the gorgeous pool at the hotel. They had these awesome foam air mattresses that almost put me to sleep. They also had a pool table next to the pool that we spent some time at. It was so nice having time to be alone. I'm so in awe of how God uniquely designed us for each other! What a precious gift Steve is to me! Here's to 3 years and hopefully many, many more! I love you!!

And a special shout out and thanks to the Yarbroughs and the Malaments for watching Audrey while we were gone!! You blessed us tremendously!

These cabanas by the pool were awesome! Steve doesn't like to sit in direct sun for too long so they really were perfect. We ate lunch under it one day.

Patiently waiting for our anniversary breakfast

It has arrived! Georgia peach waffles!!! Oh yum!

After breakfast, Steve took me golfing for the first time. Well, not a real game, just the driving range. Here's the pro at work.

And here's the beginner trying to keep up. I had a lot more fun than I thought I would!


But boy, WAS IT HOT! Here we are heading back after an hour of hitting balls in the scorching sun.

Entering Chart House, the restaurant we had our anniversary dinner at.

Happy anniversary Honey!

Cool building

This Catholic church was beautiful, inside and out


My dream home

And this one's not too shabby either.

Beautiful sunset


Best anniversary trip, they just keep getting better! Steve, thank you for such an amazing trip! I love that you took the time to plan the trip and to keep it a surprise :) I am one blessed girl! I love you more today than I did yesterday and I will love you more tomorrow than I did today! I couldn't have ask for a more perfect life mate! I love you!!!!!
