Welcome to 31 Days of Date Nights. My plan is to give you a simple date night idea, (mostly frugal ones) every day for the month of October. You can access all posts in this series here.
I cannot believe we made it to the end of this series! It seemed a bit daunting when I ventured off on this journey, but I’ve had a blast doing it and I hope you’ve enjoyed it as well. Coming up with creative (and frugal) date night ideas has led me to incorporate some fresh ideas into our date nights, which both DH and I have enjoyed.
This last idea is certainly not one that I would consider frugal. But, it’s one that we’ve done. When I was pregnant with DD and we were in the midst of moving into our current home, we decided to plan a two night getaway. The place we went was just minutes from our house, but it was nice to leave our responsibilities behind and enjoy one another’s company in a relaxed atmosphere. We took advantage of a special deal the retreat center we went to was having in order to make this a bit more affordable.
Breakfast was included each morning and they had a common refrigerator which we used to store some snacks to tide my pregnant self over!
Here are some pictures from our getaway:
There is a castle on the grounds where we stayed. It is more expensive to stay in the castle, so we stayed in another lodge. Which, was probably for the best since we found out from another couple at breakfast that the castle was kinda noisy!
We walked around the grounds and saw this Eagle’s nest way up high. (There was a sign pointing to it, we certainly didn’t find it on our own!)
Yep, they had turkeys wandering all over the grounds!
Thanks again for joining me for this series! There were so many great topics being covered over the past 31 days (over 700 people joined in the fun!), I hope to read through more of them in the coming days. You can see all the topics here.
