June 23rd Wade and I celebrated our 7 year wedding anniversary by borrowing a friends convertible (Thanks Deniz) and driving up the coast to Malibu. We had an AH-MAZING dinner at Nobu and then spent the night in the Zen Room at the eclectic home of Bibi Jordan that we found through airbnb. She also rents out a chic yurt that is worth checking out. This was our first experience with airbnb and it was fantastic. A lot less expensive then staying in a hotel and Bibi was a wonderful host. If you haven’t checked out this type of lodging you must. You can view listings of peoples homes or rooms for rent all over the world. It’s my new favorite way to travel!
The next day we explored the canyon’s of Malibu, saw wild animals, did some wine tasting and then hit up the iconic Gladstones for happy hour on our drive back down the coast! It was the perfect one night get away! So close, but we felt so far away!
The last 7 years have been full of adventures and I am so happy to have such a wonderful husband to share them with. It feels like just yesterday that we met. My parents celebrated their 39th wedding anniversary this year and I am looking forward to many more anniversaries for both of us. My mom and I were talking about what has kept our relationships going strong and having a sense of humor and laughing seems to be key. Not taking life too seriously. I can see that has definitely worked for them. They can be super silly and joke around all the time!
Last weekend we were at a beautiful wedding and in the ceremony they said that you and your partner will sometimes see things differently. That doesn’t mean either one is right or wrong, just different. You must be patient, respectful and understanding of each others opinions and feelings. I think these are words to live by. Cheers to life and love!
