our weekend to remember

this past weekend, ben & i attended a marriage conference called, "a weekend to remember". it was hosted by family life, and was located in branson, missouri. it was so fun to spend time together in a town that holds so many special memories for ben & i. if it wasn't for me transferring to college of the ozarks my sophmore year, i would have (most likely) never met my true love! 

my parent's were kind enough to gift the weekend to us, and we cherished the time together before we are the seiler three! we stayed at the hilton, which overlooked the branson landing. we were blessed with amazing weather on saturday, and wore spring clothes!

this book was recommended to us by the marriage conference, and we are looking forward to reading our second parenting book together!
throughout the weekend, we enjoyed different "projects" together. one of our favorites was a letter we each wrote to each other affirming & appreciating each other, and what we are committing to working on in the future. {if you can read backwards, you can read our secret words to each other}
some good friends of our also attended the retreat, and so we enjoyed lunch together at the white river fish house. 
you may be wondering what kind of food is pictured below, and i will gladly tell you. 
alligator tails with jalepeno sauce. and they aren't too bad. 
overall, we had a great weekend together- and left feeling refreshed and ready to continue working at our marriage. so many different couples attended the retreat, from all different walks of life. ben & i have just been married a little over 2 years, but still need to pursue godliness and selflessness, to make our relationship the best that it can be. i've got a keeper!
