This past Saturday, my husband and I flew to Stowe, VT for a getaway weekend/birthday celebration. We haven't gone anywhere alone together in a while, so it was exciting. Although it tears us both apart when we leave our kids ANYWHERE for any length of time, it was so great to get away and relax and be together. Grant chose Vermont because I love mountains and we don't see much snow here in Arkansas. He chose Stowe because we both love little old towns with lots of history and architecture. So since we didn't do anything for my birthday or our anniversary last year, he figured he would whisk me away to a charming little village in the north. And I have to say, I was charmed. :) Here are some highlights of the trip. :)

We went out to a nice restaurant for my birthday. The view was beautiful, the
atmosphere was romantic, the food was AMAZING, and they even surprised me
with a delicious little treat!

It was good to get away, but I have to say that the best part was coming home to our two beautiful kids. Parenthood ruined us, y'all! We can't stand being away from our little punkins' for long. And scooping them up in my arms was definitely the best birthday gift of all!
