Last weekend Sam and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary! It was such a beautiful milestone to celebrate while looking back on all we have been though together… the good and the bad. We’ve created so much together including but not limited to 3 humans, two houses, lots of deep personal work and learning what real love is.
Sam and I say it a lot, but real love is a choice; a choice to love the other person everyday even when you don’t feel like it. We talk about about this on episode 53 of Sure, Babe .
Our original “getaway weekend” plan was to go snowboarding but somewhere along the way of planning this trip we both looked at each other and said “I’m tired, let’s just sit by a pool and get massages”. We planned the best staycation anniversary getaway with The Four Season Residence Club Aviara and did just that and so much more. We refueled our souls, slept in, had massages at The Driftwood Spa, took a tequila tasting class with the famous Manley, did yoga together, ate the best food at Seasons Restaurant… side note you must try the “Kitchen Counter” experience! It is a culinary experience that will blow your mind and tastebuds. We had the best time reconnecting as a couple.
When I say it was magic I’m not exaggerating. It was just what we needed and no one does relaxation and luxury better than The Four Seasons. Here is a our weekend in review and be sure to check out my “Four Seasons” and “Marriage” highlights on Instagram HERE to check out my stories and see how Sam surprised me with diamond earrings that he had been saving for 3 years. He knew we would be building a house at the time our ten year anniversary rolled around so he bought me diamond earrings 3 years ago from the jeweler that made my engagement ring! It was by far the most special and surprising thing he’s ever done for me. You can watch us tell the whole story under my “marriage” highlight on Instagram because like all marriages, there’s so much more to the story ha ha.
Dinner At Seasons and The Kitchen Counter Experience
Roasted Bone Marrow. I don’t think I’ve ever tasted something as delectable as this. I’m salivating just looking at this dish with risso, apple chutney with marcona almond.
Chicken Roulade with mushroom fennel stuffing and coriander cream.
Sorbet to cleanse the palette…
The best Thai sweet potato bisque I’ve ever had with root chip, chile oil and frisee.
Sam and Chef Matt chatting about food and family.
For dessert goat cheese & citrus…blood orange curd, micro cake and grapefruit sorbet. Delish!
When Sam told me he saved those diamond earrings for me for 3 years…. I was totally tearing up.
I’m in love with this timeless swimsuit from Mei Lange and it’s on sale now! Also you can use my code: CHRISSY20 for 20% off!
So relaxed…just look at the lines on my face.
Manley has been teaching about tequila for 7 years now and is the head bartender at Seasons Restaurant….his “Manley’s Famous Cadillac Margarita” is a game changer!
And there you have it friends, the best weekend EVVVVVVVERRRRR!
