The week after my birthday proved to be a long week for some reason. The baby was crabby and not sleeping well which puts a big drain on everyone. On Friday around noon I was at a café working, and I got a call from Brandon asking what I was doing. I said I was working, but just about to pack up and go home to which he replied “Good. When you get home pack an overnight bag for you and Eleanor.”
Woohoo! I love surprise getaways. Brandon booked us a room at the Seal Cove Inn in Half Moon Bay, where I took him for his 29th birthday. It’s a beautiful, cozy spot that is only 30 minutes from our home so you feel like you’re getting far away without taking up the whole weekend to get there.
Between some good naps that day and just how relaxed Brandon and I were, Eleanor was amazing on the trip. We had such a great time! I even got a soak in the jacuzzi tub while Brandon entertained Ellie. We took walks along the coast, watched a movie, ate, drank and just had an extremely relaxing time. A jacuzzi tub, a fireplace, a comfy bed, fresh baked cookies…what more could a girl ask for?
Trips like this are a great refresher, reminding me of all I have to be thankful for (and it’s a lot!). Thanks to Brandon for making this trip happen…such great memories as one of our first family trips!
