Ed and I honeymooned at Amicalola Falls State Park two years ago. For our trip this week, we stayed in the same room we did on our honeymoon.
We did not have sex until we were married, so for most of our first trip there we had “other things” on our minds. So as we walked around the room again on Thursday, I discovered quite a lot of things that I didn’t remember from the first time around.
It started with the view.
As I mentioned in my mobile post on Thursday, I had no idea the view was so pretty.
I remember we had a completely private balcony. And I remember sleeping out there on an air mattress and sleeping bag one night. (We did the same thing — but just for a few hours — on this trip. Why we did this with a big comfortable king-size bed inside I’m not sure. And it was REALLY cold. Two years ago and on Thursday.) Anyway, the balcony I remember.
These cool rocking chairs and table? I have no memory of them whatsoever. Ed assures me they were there, as he had to move them. 🙂
I also don’t remember the Internet. Oh, that’s right… there WASN’T any Internet when we were there the last time. Limited cellular service, too. All in all, I think I prefer it that way.
I’m quite sure there was lots of cool wildlife outside our window…
Like this deer.
But Ed and I sure as heck didn’t see them.
There are a few things I remember vividly.
(No environmentally unfriendly bottles of shampoo, etc., for us.)
(Remember when they ALL had cords?)
(We watched “Lost,” my husband’s favorite show. It’s the only t.v. we watched the whole week.)
And, of course, this…
But most of all? I remember this…
I love my husband. And I don’t need a return trip to our honeymoon destination — or any destination — to remember all the reasons why.
