The Romance is Alive

Puff and I have made it a habit in the 2+ years that we've been together to get out and experience as much of the world as possible. We've been everywhere from Ireland to New York City to Mexico in that short time and we've got a big trip to Scandinavia on the books for next year. I've said for years that if there wasn't travel, I'd be lost. And I will always choose to fund a trip versus funding anything else. With my insane work schedule, we always have to plan well in advance. Our spring is already jam-packed of visits from Puff's family, a Hilton Head trip with my parents, and getaways with friends for birthday celebrations. So, when I put the pressure on for a trip just the two of us, Puff hit the jackpot.

This winter, we get to spend a romantic weekend away together at the Old Edwards Inn & Spa in Highlands, North Carolina. It's an adorable, yet swanky, small town and it was recently ranked by Conde Nast Traveler as one of the best hotel spas in the country! Sure, it won't probably be warm enough to go out hiking in the surrounding mountains and I'm betting a lot of the shops will be boarded up in anticipation of the spring tourist season, but I am out of my mind excited about the prospect of it all.
Curling up with my husband in a ritzy room with a jacuzzi and splurging on a massage and a fancy dinner sounds perfect to me. Now we've just got to get through these coming months in between. Thankfully, having something like this to look forward to, makes those months that much easier to bear.
