Planning a Romantical Getaway

20 Apr

For the trillionth time, I’ve told you how much Jamally is working these days with the election coming up, and on May 3, we expect everything to get back to ‘normal’ around our household. That being said, he suggested we plan a trip that following weekend to get away and spend some one-on-one time together.

Flashback: During our marriage prep course weekend, there was a Q&A we reviewed with our small groups, and one question was, “What is the most romantic thing your partner has ever done for you?” I pitched our proposal story as Jamally’s best romantic crafting, but we both came up with nil on my part. Noted.

And…we’re back: Jamally suggested we book a night away the weekend following the election, even if it’s to a nearby location, to ensure we spend some quality away together. I love having the chance to get away, and love planning the weekend just as much!

Take our honeymoon for example. The day following our wedding, Jamally and I hopped on a train (with bindle in hand), and travelled to Quebec City for a four-day getaway. It was the perfect place for us. We didn’t travel too far and didn’t have to fight in the car ride, as we could relax on the train.

We arrived at our hotel at night, and woke up the next morning to see our actual view from the hotel:

Our view from the Courtyard Marriott

We were excited to tour around the area, and had gorgeous weather to go with it.

We ate:

Wine and Dessert? Yes, Please!

We took a Horse and Carriage Ride:

We got carried away!

And we ate some more:

Drinks at the Irish Pub

We had an amazing time, and realized we didn’t need to go too far for a getaway. With that in mind, our post-election getaway will also be to a nearby region.

We could go to Ottawa, Kingston, Merrickville, Prince Edward County…but before I start planning:

Question: Where should we go for our getaway?
