I love being what I now call, my husband’s mistress.
It is a little personal joke that we have since he has been flying me around to exotic locations to meet up with him while on business this summer. It is part of our 20th anniversary year long celebration.
Yes, a little adventure is what this 20 year marriage needed, although I am not complaining because our whole life seems like it has been an adventure.
But guess what? A few marital getaways are really, really fun and most of our lives-let’s be honest….all of our lives, we have dragged kids with us, so we don’t feel guilty taking a few overnighters to ourselves.
Don’t worry the fun has to end when school kicks back in and my built in help, Hillary prepares to leave to China.
I flew down to meet them and I never say no when he is staying at the Renaissance in Time Square.
I have said a thousand times, I love Central Park, Midtown Manhattan and then thrill of the fast pace city. I see so much beauty in what others find drab and dirty.
I have been here a half dozen times this year alone and I never seem to get sick of it.
I only need a day or two and I am all set with the crowds and the rude behavior though.
This trip, we walked through Central Park after Japanese food at our favorite place on 49th and 7th that I have blogged about a hundred times.
Of course, I love everything they serve- diet buster.
And then I crashed at the hotel and took it easy as they took clients to dinner.
I managed to wiggle a Mama Mia Broadway ticket and couldn’t have been happier. It was my third time and I will still loving it as much as the first time.
Brian met me after at the theater and recommended that we walk over to Time Square which the stairs had been closed to visitors, so we headed up to the view from our hotel lounge.
I typed this entry from this location that he took me earlier. Not to shabby right? This is where he stays most of the time and darn it….if he is here…. I am coming. You never know when opportunity might end.
He surprised me by popping out this little box and presented me with a little gift…this little moment was right out of a movie. It was a little 20th anniversary surprise! And surprised I was!
Sorry you will have to see the surprise in person-
Next morning, We put on our running gear and walked the heck out of the Central Park again. We followed this band of dogs that was fun to watch.
The number one thing that I love to do with him is walk at a fast pace. We do most of our most important life discussions walking. If I die, I want him to remember that my favorite activity was not a location or an event, but our walks! Millions of miles of walking and talking is what has made for a great 20 years of marriage! I love that guy!
