We made it back from our Marriage Getaway with a serious case of the blues. We have such an incredible time each year, but coming back to the real world it the pits. I just have to keep telling myself that if we lived there all the time we would not appreciate it as much. (even though I don’t think that is true)
Anywho, I’ll give you a quick recap of our weekend and show you some pics to make you super jealous of how gorgeous this place it.
We left Thursday morning with two other couples and headed to Colorado Springs. We started a tradition two years ago of stopping at the Broadmoor for lunch and a little exploring. Spending a few days there to relax and play golf is definitely on our bucket list. (Well, the golf part is on CP’s bucket list)
After lunch, we headed to the castle. It’s called Glen Eyrie, and it’s located in the Garden of the Gods. Right when you pull in you feel drastically lighter. The air, the beauty, it’s like none other. We spent the next 3 days resting, reconnecting, hiking, playing games and learning more about how to have a healthy, lasting, fulfilling marriage, the kind of marriage that God wants us to have. With our past year of heartache, we really needed this weekend away together. It really put things into perspective. God used this weekend as a time of rest and healing.
If you ever get the chance to get away, I would highly suggest taking advantage of this place. They offer marriage getaways through out the year. Getting away for your marriage is one of the best things you can do. We were able to connect with each other, as well as other couples who want to grow their marriage as much as we do! It’s an incredible feeling.
I could go on and on about it, but I will just show you a few pics from our weekend. I hope you all have a great Tuesday!!!
If you guys want more information about this place or the marriage getaways, don’t hesitate to email me about it! I am happy to share all that I know!!
