Sweet Escape: Without the Children

Sweet Escape: Without the Children
Peace & Quiet. Priceless.


  1. Hi Melissa!

    Looks like you’ve gotten a good start on the weekend! Unfortunately it’s still cold here and there’s no escaping the kids; guess I’ll just live vicariously through you! : )

    I wanted to stop by and invite you and your readers to enter my little goody bag giveaway. The details are all on today’s post. The goody bag will be tailored to the winner…

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Oh my dear friend, you sooooooo deserve this little getaway! Have a wonderful, restful, happy time, and come back all refreshed and ready to face the world again! It is so important that we take the time to reconnect with our husbands, once in a while. I am glad that you are taking the opportunity to do that. My husband and I are going to run-away next weekend for a couple of days. The Pacific Ocean is calling me.

    Enjoy your retreat, and come by to say hello when you get home!

    Hugs and love,

  6. Jealous! Thats what I am!

    But I’m also very happy for you! Looks soooo wonderful!

  7. Ahhhhhhhhh…picture says it all!

  8. That is such a wonderful photo. Recently my husband and I went to New York together without the children. It was so nice to just be us for a change. We have teen daughters, it was like a little break away from “drama”. Enjoy. Blessings, Karen

    My hubby and I just went to Virginia Beach (we were on the 700 Club:)) over the weekend and Sat. night we slept 11 hours! Were we exhausted or what? LOL. It was relaxing, romantic and we laughed a lot.
