No, this isn't some post telling everyone that my husband and I are going away for the weekend. Unfortunately, it just isn't in the cards for us right now. It is though for Nicole and I am thrilled for her (I am also a bit jealous, since she will be staying at one of my all-time favorite places).
A while back, before Leah was born and I was working full time, Joe and I would take long weekends away. I just love New England, so very often we would stay at a cozy little bed and breakfast somewhere in Vermont or Maine. These always made for the perfect pick-me-up. After a hearty and delicious breakfast we would spend our days reading, shopping in little country stores and talking with the other guests. It was just so good to unwind and take a step back from life.
Do you remember, or have experienced lately, the perfect weekend getaway?
Oh, and Nicole, enjoy this view!
