|Floating flowers at our B&B...a pretty idea I'd like to implement at home!|
We wandered around the old bed and breakfast house with it's high ceilings and squeaky wood floors...watched the rain from the cuplola...read books....talked.
Slept in. (No 1 1/2 yr. old to wake us up!)
Ate a Southern breakfast that 1) I didn't have to prepare and 2) I didn't have to clean up!
And we asked ourselves..."Why in the world don't we do this more often?!?"
The most obvious reason is money. We are in middle of The Less Project, after all. But, the amazing thing was that we were able to take this one night away without spending any money outside of our regular budget!
Babysitting = Free. Grandparents are awesome for this. But it's also possible to trade off babysitting with another couple who has small children.
Dinner out = Paid for from money in our "dining out" envelope.
One night at a bed and breakfast = $80...paid for by my sweet husband, who had been saving his allowance money gradually (what a man!).
We were so refreshed at the end. Our huge takeaway was that we need to make time (and save money) for this more often. Our marriage is worth the investment.
Have you been able to get away with your sweetie lately? If not, what are the barriers you face...and how could they be overcome?
