Seven Things To Do on a Romantic Getaway With Your Husband!

For the last week, I have been on a romantic getaway with my husband of 17 years. We are on the east coast perusing chic destinations like Ocean City, NYC, Greenwich, and the Hamptons. Yeah. I am not suffering. In fact, I am having the time of my life (I hate to admit) because for 10 days, I am 100% kid-less. It’s just me and the hubby with a lot of time on our hands, like the good old days that sometimes seem so distant that I have to pull out the photo albums to remind myself that they really existed.

We have been getting together with friends almost every evening and the topic of amazement seems to be the fact that we ARE on a trip ALONE. I have been astonished how many couples confessed, “We haven’t taken a trip together alone since we had kids”. And I got to thinking…this isn’t a good thing. This is not fabulous at all. Kids need to learn that they can cope without us, and couples need alone time to reconnect and rediscover why they fell in love. So why aren’t they doing it more often, or ever?

The range of excuses I heard included childcare issues, lack of vacation time, or sadly, just not thinking about it. Get creative ladies! Pool your resources, save up for a sitter and start turning that dream getaway into reality. This vacation has been one of the best things my husband and I have done in a long time.

As a source of inspiration, I have assembled a list of 7 things to do on your next romantic getaway.

1. Say “Yes” to everything.

2. Wear something really pretty.

And when the GPS battery goes dead, he won’t stop to ask for directions, and you’re two hours late for dinner with friends…

7. Fuhgeddaboudit!
