We are outta here!

Yup, for the first time ever, Stuart and I are going away together!! Usually one of us leaves--Stuart for work or hunting, me to visit my family in Saskatchwan--the other one stays home with the furkids. We have never gone away together for more than a few hours! This time we'll be gone for 12 days and we aren't going to visit anyone! We leave bright and early tomorrow morning for Cuba! We are going to hang out in Havana for a few days and then move over to the beach in Varadero. I am seriously looking forward to laying on a beach with a cabana boy bringing me Mojitos! :)

Our dear, sweet, brave friend, Stephanie has agree to look after the dogs, cats, house and everything that goes with that! We had to fly her in from Toronto, but the extra cost is well worth the peace of mind. I have every confidence that she can handle whatever the critters throw at her. Cross your paws that they behave themselves, at least a little bit!

The reason for this journey....May 15th is our 10th wedding anniversary! I doubt anyone would admit it now, but we know that more than a few people didn't think we'd make this far!

Look at us...we were just babies! How life has changed in the last 10 years! When this pic was taken we had one dog and one cat; we lived in a major city down south; I didn't even own a pair of Carharts, had never heard of bunny boots, but I had a vast collection of skirts and heels! It's been quite a trip so far and I wouldn't change a minute of it! I'm looking forward to seeing where the next ten years take us!

The next post will have weird pictures never seen before on this blog....sand, sun....See y'all in a couple weeks. Be well!

How I remember your trickery to get Dad and I to come to Waterton Park to witness your marriage and pay for the "big" reception of all 6 people. love to you both. You deserve to be together to celebrate this milestone as you continue your journey down the pathway of life. Love ya both, Mom Carol

Congratulations, and hugs & kisses to you & Stuart. You two kids have fun, enjoy the sunshine, beaches, and Mojitos. We're all crossing paws & sending sibe vibes that the furkids all play nice together.

Bon Voyage!

Congrats on the 10yr mark! Wow, for Stuart to stick around after all the dog/cat additions - he's a keeper! :)

Are you going to blog from the beach!?? Have fun and enjoy it, I'm sure it'll be miserable here for the next 12 days...

Tell Steph to contact me if she wants(needs!) to go for a beer one night. I'm sure the dogs will be on their bestest behaviour!
