Sunday is my sweet husband's 40th birthday, so we are escaping tomorrow for a weekend in the country. I can't wait! I've planned the entire trip and the itinerary is all a surprise to him. A beautiful bed and breakfast in the country with a fireplace and movies in our room, a romantic Italian restaurant, and a huge gourmet breakfast served fireside. Then we'll do a little Christmas shopping before coming home, where I'll be making him a good dinner and his favorite pies for a family party - Toll House Pie and Apple Pie with Haagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream.
I have a wonderful husband who loves us so much and I want to celebrate him this weekend. I love that it happens each year right before Christmas. It's a nice reason to escape the holiday rush and focus on how thankful I am for him.
Here are some more photos of our weekend ahead:
