For our one year dating anniversary, Husband took me to one of my favorite places – Seattle, WA. We rode the train up there from Portland, OR and we walked all over. Our relationship was pretty new still and it was our first weekend away together (I was so scared).
It was during this getaway that I found out that Husband and I have travel magic. He had planned for us to eat dinner at the Space Needle, a place where I had always wanted to eat, and he managed to get us a table (even if it was for 9:00pm). He didn’t tell me that he was going to do that and earlier that day, as we were walking past the Space Needle, I had casually said that I didn’t want to go up because I had already seen it before.
Instead, we went to MoPop where they were having a Sci-Fi exhibit where they had a Dalek on display. For those who don’t know, I became a Whovian because I had told Husband that of course I had seen Doctor Who, who hasn’t? (As I was frantically starting the series in case we talked about it). After I started watching it because I had lied to Husband about watching it, I became addicted. I far surpassed his fandom and created my own.
We managed to eat at the best hole-in-the-wall places and we had just enough money to buy that bagel and cream cheese on the way home on the train because I was starving. Travel. Magic.
I am hoping we can go back soon but until then, I will always think about our first anniversary weekend and the magic that it has.
