30 On The 30th

My better half has finally entered his thirties!!! I find it incredible that I’ve been with him for half of his life!!!!!!!!! That’s 15 years people!!!! So I asked him what exactly did he want to do for his big 30. While others may want to celebrate BIG like Last Vegas, flying out somewhere exotic and having the time of their lives…..He just wanted a relaxed weekend getaway. Thank’s to Airbnb we were able to find a modern glam studio apartment within Santana Row, within the Silicon Valley. An outdoor shopping mall in San Jose, California and close by to Westfield Valley. Located along Stevens Creek Boulevard f the Winchester Mystery House is just to its west, across Winchester Boulevard.

After settling down in Sacramento, we were desperately due for a weekend getaway away from our home, and the children. Our focus has been heavily set on the kids the past 3 months, as they transitioned into their new schools, and started little league. (Oh! Did I forget to mention, I volunteered myself as team parent! Which I think was a big deal on my end. Transitioning into a home, and balancing out 11 families.) The man, knew we were in need for some distressing from out life in Sacramento, and so we headed straight back to the Bay Area, dropped off our children to the parentals in the East Bay, and were off to Santa Clara.

His birthday eve dinner was spent at El Jardin Tequila Bar & Restaurant, located at the southend of Santana Row. Upon our arrival, a Spanish band started to play. I couldn’t think of any other way to enjoy our Friday night together. It reminded me how wonderful it is to get one on one time with your significant other. Perfect atmosphere, location, and weekend away from the kids, rejuvenates us as a couple, and makes us as a couple appreciate each other more.

I created this cool little “what we got” at the bar. let me know what you think. I think it’s pretty cool, if only Yelp did something like this within their posts.
