Perfect Moment Monday -- Gateway Getaway

Perfect Moment Monday was started by and is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. According to Weebles' creator, Lavender Luz, Perfect Moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between." And so, here is a Perfect Moment for this week.
Last year my we won a gift certificate from Gateway Canyons through our local United Way campaign. What a treat!

Not only did we have a beautiful drive to the resort, complete with the changing fall colors, but my sweet hubby and I also got time away from the usual demands of our lives.

With all of the kids taken care of, we were free to relax and enjoy our time together. After checking in we went on a date to the Paradox Grille for a couple of drinks, snacks and then dinner. Our conversations were uninterrupted; we laughed and enjoyed each others company.

The next day we enjoyed a relaxing breakfast and borrowed vintage bikes to tour around the property.

The views are terrific, but this, I think, is the most perfectest thing of all.

Congrats on your win!
