Happy Valentines Day!
The Jackson Rose Bed and Breakfast, Harpers Ferry, WV
This past weekend I took Michael away for a "date weekend". We have never done this ever - especially since Abraham was born. I thought it was about time. So I found a Bed and Breakfast in Harpers Ferry on the Potomac River. The place we stayed was actually Stonewall Jackson's home when he was in Harpers Ferry. We had the room where he wrote to his wife about a rose coming in the window. The Jackson Rose was a beautiful home and we enjoyed it tremendously.
We had a chance to do a few things that we have never done, in nearby Charles Town, WV. Charles Town is known for it's slots and horse racing. We placed a few measly bets on two horses and of course didn't win anything. And we did the slots just to say that we had done it. It was a really fun night and we enjoyed just being a couple again, as you can tell! It was good to talk and to laugh together without having to worry about the responsibilities of home. We were grateful that Mimi and Gdad watched Abraham for us.
It was a well needed weekend.
