John and I had a mini stay-cation last weekend to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary. Grandma and Papa drove up to watch the kids for us on Saturday. We left them at the house and checked in to the Westin on Harbour Island (yes, it’s in Tampa hence the stay-cation). We lounged by the pool for a few hours before getting ready for dinner. It was awesome to just sit, relax, read a magazine and bask in the afternoon sun. John took me to Elevage that evening, a newer restaurant that we had heard good things about. It had a fun atmosphere and the food was delicious! We ordered way too much food and were so full we could hardly finish our wine. That never happens! :p Elevage is located inside a hotel, the Epicurean, which also has a rooftop bar. We went up to check it out after dinner. They were already at capacity but it looks like a great place that we will definitely check out again another time. We headed back to the hotel afterwards with intentions of watching a movie but we were both too tired. Is it bad that we spent a night away from our kids sleeping? We clearly needed it.
We look naked! lol
It was a beautiful evening. We enjoyed a glass of wine overlooking downtown Tampa before heading to dinner.
I woke up to the best text message on Sunday. It was a video from Grandma of the kids wishing me a Happy Mother’s Day! We packed up and headed home to celebrate the day with most of the Gumula’s. Mark even made the drive over from Orlando with his girlfriend.
I was showered with cards, flowers and a special bottle of wine.

John is so creative!
I also got a couple fun gifts like a new pool float and a lock and speedometer for my bike. I’m training for a triathlon so those things will come in handy!
We also had our first dip in the pool since last summer! It was still a little on the chilly side but we will be swimming regularly in no time.
It was a great weekend filled with so much love. Thank you, Grandma and Papa, for helping us make our weekend so special.
♥♥♥ Happy Mother's Day!! ♥♥♥
