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:

Hi Jennifer,
Have a great time. The resort looks like a nice place to relax. Mike and I are going to San Antonio after Christmas to a resort that I cropped at back in November. I loved it so much we are going back. It is called Riven Rock Ranch in Comfort, Texas. Check them out.
