Gold Peak Tea at WingStop
Disclosure: Thanks to our friends at Coca-Cola for the opportunity to SIP.SMILE.CELEBRATE with Gold Peak Tea!

The last couple of months have been a bit challenging for our family. It’s been a whirlwind of emotions and things are just beginning to settle down. My birthday came and went last month without much fanfare, so when our 23rd anniversary rolled around this week, Colby decided he had to get me out of the house for a while. Somewhere nearby. Just the two of us.

Bring the Feeling of Home

We weren’t looking for a 4-course meal, just somewhere familiar and close to home. Home. The place where I feel most comfortable and find incredible happiness.

Having spent the entire day with our family, we just needed a little one-on-one time.

Knowing the girls would only be content for an hour or two at home with their cousins, we made the most of our time by picking a local restaurant: WingStop. One of Colby’s favorite things about stopping there is the fact that he can enjoy a tall glass of Gold Peak® Tea.

Me? I simply relish in the time spent with my favorite person. Working side-by-side building this business of ours, raising 5 children, managing our home, and the daily ins-and-outs all of that entails doesn’t always leave much room for conversation. I love to sit and talk with him. Our journey together began as teenagers when we would sit on the curb in front of his house and talk for hours on end. All these years later and it’s still one of my most cherished pastimes with him.

23 years with this man

Some think we might run out of things to talk about, but every day is new. Each moment with our children, every day in our business, every moment in our life together creates another topic of conversation. Life is lived in those times and the memory of each one of them bring me back to another time. Once I can capture those and reel them in, I feel home. Anywhere with this guy, I feel at home.

Therefore, as we sat and shared wings, sipped on ice cold Gold Peak® Tea, talked and laughed, we celebrated all that life had brought our way over the years. Our marriage has spanned more than half of our lives. We’ve spent many hours celebrating in just this way; conversation and sweet tea. It seemed only proper—and every bit nostalgic—that we spend this particular anniversary doing this very thing. Wings. Gold Peak® Tea. Chat.
