One thing you may or may know about me (I should say us) is that we have a zoo membership. Yes, we pay so that we can go to the zoo whenever we want and no, we don’t have kids. Bruce and I have always been kids at heart since before we even met. Disney runs in our blood, adventure lives in our hearts, and sometimes I think we still hope for that Hogwarts letter to come to the door. We love the fantasy, the real, the magical, and the beautiful. This zoo is unlike any other and running around (faster than all those strollers) to see our favorite animals and go to our favorite places only ends in silly jokes and loads of laughter.
The fact that we are members gives us extra perks throughout the year like this Members Only Night which made us feel pretty legit. We got ready after work and headed up the mountain for dinner, dessert, and up close activities/ enrichment with the animals. I was also pumped out of my mind to see the new Australia exhibit and I had a feeling I would try to take one of the Wallabies home. I didn’t, but I did take pictures, petted a baby one, and told Bruce that it would be my top choice in a pet one day.
As a married couple it is so important to have these shared experiences. The opportunity to get away from home, from other plans, from work, from whatever and just make memories together. They are not always extravagant and most times end up being practically free (that zoo membership pays for itself!) but it is good for our hearts and good for our “us.” – probably also for the Wallaby.
Before I headed out the door, I snapped on my new leather bracelet from Willow Creek Leather. I love the rustic/ dressed up feel it has – you know, totally making me dressed up for our hot date. But really, I am loving it and wear it all the time these days. Since it is Friday and we like giveaways, we are giving you the chance to win one of you own.
