Every Moment

Marc and I got to run away for 24 hours this weekend. And it was such a wonderful time for us. We have never (nope no honeymoon for us) gone anywhere like this before. After 17 1/2 years, I think it was past time. So you'll get to see a lot of Marc and me in the pictures, because we were the only ones there!!
 We were able to do a temple session before we headed to our hotel. It has been a few months since Marc and I have been able to go together. So that's why we were all dressed up on a Friday afternoon.
 We stayed at the historic Davenport Hotel. It is so pretty and I love the history. Marc was a sport, wandering around with my while I looked at the walls, moldings, ceiling, and anything else that was fascinating to me.
 This is were we first came into the hotel.
 Here is the main lobby area. It is actually a dinning room for one of the restaurants in the hotel.
 On our way up the elevator. Happy to be here. Poor Marc got his picture taken A LOT!
 Ta-Da! Our room. This was the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on, hotel or otherwise. It was so nice to be comfy away from home.
 The room even came with robes! LOL Never seen that before.
 Marc and I decide we need to put one of these showers in our bathroom at home. No having to worry about the shower curtain sticking to our sides in this baby.
 
 Our hotel was only 2 block from the Riverfront Mall, so I took Marc out to a movie there. While we were waiting for it to start, we did some window shopping. We found grumpy cat. This picture make me laugh and smile. It was so special to spend time not worrying about anything else and just enjoying our time.
 This was the sight that greeted us on the way back from the movie.
 Good Morning, Spokane. This is the view from our room. We were on the 7th floor. We even had to use our room key in the elevator to get to our floor.
 The Palm Garden is one of the restaurants in the hotel. We are going to take mom out to lunch here in between her surgery's.
 Talk about ambiance while eating.
 Marc wanted me to get this shot, so you could see how big these vases are.
 On the upstairs of that main room, they have other wonderful rooms that you can explore. One of them is the Doges Room and this is on the way up the stair case to that room.

 Here it is! It was spectacular. They just don't make things like this anymore.
 You can't see it very well, but the ceiling was covered with painting.
 It was so cool. :)
 This is the upstairs of the Marie Antoinette ball room. It was totally amazing.I took a panorama shot. But none of them really does any of it justice.
I am sure I came home glowing. Marc make me truly happy and I am so blessed that he is here in my life. He's not perfect, but he mine and I know that we have now into eternity to get it right.
