gotta getaway

The husband and I took off one weekend day recently to live above our means pretending to be fancy beyond our usual.. it was his birthday after all and I wanted to treat him to something special. He truly is the best husband in all the land you see.

We spent our day (a full 24 hours – we milked it) at a local(ish) resort, complete with massages and schmancy pants food. I canโ€™t even tell you how amazing that was.. or how much I ate. The food itself was edible art – revolving around local fare and presented to compliment the natural surroundings.

We took time to walk the trail around the lake and play in the butterfly garden. I think we all need more times like this in our life where we can spend a few hours not focused on responsibilities and truly just being present. We returned relaxed and refreshed.. I plan on future to take more time as such.. even if it is just locking the doors and hiding the phones.

  1. Aww what a lovely getaway! I used to ‘play’ at being fancy when I was a teen, I remember going with my boyfriend at the time to fancy places in London for a day trip and we struggled to even afford a cup of tea & a slice of cake at the Ritz back then, but it does feel special doing a one off ‘living beyond your means’ kind of trip ๐Ÿ˜‚ The lake trail and butterfly garden sound very peaceful. Happy Belated Birthday to your hubby!
