We took an early birthday trip to California from last week to early this week. It was a trip for both of us, but it was mostly a trip for me. How do I know? I got to spend some me time at The Dry Bar and explore the baby Target. You read that right, in a whole big city full of things to do together, I chose a bunch of girl stuff.
From the day we first drove by the City Target, I had my heart set on checking it out.
My sweet husband gladly obliged–and took photos of me being a total fangirl along the way.
Same thing happened with The Dry Bar, I saw it one morning and was dead set on checking it out. I even jumped out of the car (I was driving) in traffic to make my appointment in time. Mr. Gray did a little solo exploring then came in, paid for my hair, and let them surprise me at the counter and wish me a happy birthday–definitely made me feel like a princess.
And then there was the part where he let me drive the fun car first. If that doesn’t make him a gentleman, I don’t know what does.
The whole trip was so much fun. It was a great time for us to connect, hang out, recharge, and just be us. We didn’t have a single date, time, place, or obligation to stick to, and it was wonderful. It was just me and him–on our own time.
