Birthday Weekend Getaway

My Guy’s Birthday

Every year I ask my husband what he wants to do for his birthday and every year he will say

” A nice dinner with you and the kids”.

So with this year being extra special I didn’t ask what he would want, I just went ahead and booked what I knew he would love and most likely needed. A quiet relaxing long weekend in Montauk at Gurney’s.

We don’t get away much without the kiddies, so when Friday came we packed ourselves up and got on the road. :)

The car ride  was so peaceful and quiet, that before we knew it we were there and had this waiting to greet us when we entered our room.

And this terrace and lounge waiting for us to take a nap on. 😉

When I booked our stay I never would have believed that it would be 60 degrees in December, but it was and we planned on enjoying every moment of it. We ordered up room service and stared at our beautiful view for the rest of the day.

The next morning we woke to this beautiful view, which just kept getting better and better.

So, we quickly headed outside to take it all in.

And it so didn’t disappoint.

Just Beautiful!

A nice hot cup of coffee was needed next, which was followed by a nice long walk on the beach.

We walked and talked, found pretty shells, took shadow selfies, :) and looked out into the ocean.

There is something about the beach that is so calming, especially when there isn’t anyone there.  My husband just loves the peace of it and was definitely enjoying himself.

And so was I, but it was time to head back and get ready for our couples massage. I will not be showing you any pics from that, but we loved it and were feeling great and now ready for a nice hardy lunch and cocktails back on our lounge.

This burger was sooooo worth every calorie and the nap that followed under the December sunshine was unbelievable.

Gurney’s set up a faux ice skating rink on top of the roof which had an amazing view and was actually a lot of fun to skate on. Having Santa skating around to take pictures with just made it ten times better in my book.

We did try to clean ourselves up for a nice dinner, but failed miserably at our timer photo. After a ton of editing this is the best I got. Oh well, we still got to enjoy an amazing dinner at Scarpetta Beach, but were more than happy to be back in our room right after dinner.

This weekend really was meant for us to enjoy some quiet time together and celebrate the wonderful person he is.

I truly was blessed the day this man came into my life!!!

Happy Birthday My Love…
