Dear Honey Run Friends,
Last weekend, I like many of you, was working in the yard preparing for the Memorial Day holiday. My main chore was to fix-up the fire pit so I could enjoy the first fire of the season. After I had relocated most of the stones and had set them in the internationally-accepted circle pattern, I decided to catch my breath. So I sat on the Gator leaning on the steering wheel listening to the bird songs and enjoying the cool breeze. Through the trees on the other side of the creek I observed a couple of our guests on the yellow trail walking back and forth from the path to the field. My curiosity was piqued. What are they doing?
As I watched them for a few minutes longer, I saw them both run from the path, kneel down holding hands as they looked into each other’s eyes with the sun drenched farm field in the background. I realized what they were doing. They were capturing a romantic moment in a picture with their camera that was on the path.
The moment touched me. It made me begin to reflect on the countless couples I have encountered over my time at Honey Run, who share with me their wonderful anniversary stories and how much they love to come to Honey Run as their anniversary getaway. During my stroll down memory lane, I also recalled an evening not too long ago where two couples in Tarragon struck up a conversation during dinner. They were seated at neighboring tables and each was celebrating an anniversary. One couple was celebrating their 65th anniversary and the other couple was celebrating their first. It was touching to overhear the couple sharing their insights on how to experience a lifetime of love while making their marriage last for two-thirds of a century. The newly-married couple seemed to genuinely appreciate the interaction, unable to wipe away their smiles.
The Inn at Honey Run was created to be a respite for couples to reunite and thankfully I see this mission in motion every day. I hope you are able to share your special day with us and find the joy and connection that thousands of couples have found on these hallowed grounds.
See you soon,
