It was like magic!! We pulled up and the valet immediately came up to park our car. We entered the hotel and another employee said "Hello, Mr. and Mrs. Hull. Welcome to the Ritz Carlton." He immediately knew our name. I know it was told to the valet by headset, but we do not usually stay at places like this. I felt famous. We were checked in and directed to our executive suite on the 21st floor. It had a small living room with nice dark furniture, fresh flowers, a TV, minibar, and a HUGE bay window. It had its own bathroom off the living room. Then it had big French doors that opened up to the master bedroom.

It was finally here, our 16th wedding anniversary. For our 14th wedding anniversary, my husband David was serving in Iraq with the military. For our 15th wedding anniversary, he was home, so we renewed our vows and had our first real wedding. After that, I swore that our anniversaries would forever be extra special. This year, we spent our special night at The Ritz-Carlton in Buckhead, Atlanta. We were on the 21st floor in an executive suite and also had a romance package booked. We just planned on enjoying each other's company away from the children for a night. We arrived at The Ritz-Carlton and the valet immediately came up to park our car. We walked into the lobby and were blown away. It was so...Read More
