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…

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
