Romantic Weekend Away

Mike and I have both been working super hard lately, so when a great boutique hotel in the mountains invited us to stay, we jumped at the opportunity. It’s about a 4 hour drive from NYC, so we jumped in the car yesterday at around noon, put Sirius on the Christmas music station (yes, I’m one of those  people), and headed out. Within in an hour we realized that we’re actually super hungry, and stopped in Greenwich Connecticut. I’d never been before, but I’d hear it’s a lot like the Hamptons. I only really checked out the main street, but yeah, it’s like the Hamptons on steroids. Every shop you could imagine, from Saks, to Tiffany & Co., to Rag & Bone… this town is set up for shopping.

We found a cute little restaurant with lots of vegan and gluten-free options called Organic Planet. We had a truly delicious meal there — butternut squash soup with pineapple and nutmeg and a few other things in it. So super delicious. We also tried fresh coconut water straight from the coconut (I always thought my first time trying that would be somewhere coconuts are native, not in the North-Eastern US, but that’s another topic), and after we were done they opened it up and we got to scoop it out. A fun experience.

On the walk back to the car we passed several groups of women, all decked out in their Montpellier ski jackets, fur boots and Chanel sunglasses, gossiping about other women who weren’t around. What’s that saying again? Oh, “Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people.” Again, another topic for another day.

Check back later as I’ll be posting all about the gorgeous hotel we’re staying at (we have a bathtub in our bedroom!) xox Hilary

What are your favorite weekend getaways?

Every relationship has to go through some hard times, but if you have loved someone honestly, you should try to make sincere efforts to maintain mutual respect and understand forever.

Since, me and my husband remain busy at our offices throughout the week, I hardly get a chance to spend romantic moments with my husband, so it feels too relaxing to both of us to share our thoughts and opinions, watch TV, and cooking food together at weekends. However, it will be a fantastic idea to go out for shopping and having dinner at the best restaurant in the locality.

One of our favorite weekend getaway locations is Prince Edward County in Ontario. There are charming little villages/towns, picturesque roads aside vineyards, lots of wineries to visit, nice B&Bs and inns (our favorite is the Merrill Inn in Picton). Of course, Port Hope, Ontario would also be at the top of any Ontario getaway list too!
