In T-minus 5 days, my fiance and I will experience the ultimate Christmas gift to each other…our own little private couples getaway only 20 minutes from our home!
Yep, we are indulging in some long overdue, uninterrupted Natalie & Michal time folks. A total of 20 hours of just us, no kids, no friends, no family, just US. The smartphone will be on in the event of an emergency (and to take cool pics of course) but you won’t catch me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest or any other social media during this time period. Data will be turned off. This getaway is about reconnecting with the love of my life!
What’s on the agenda? Well, first and foremost we need to check into our Platinum Junior Suite at the Inn at the Forks. The amenities sound riDONCulous! Then, we will explore the steam rooms and sauna at the Riverstone Spa before we start our weekend right with a relaxing and re-energizing couples massage.
After our massage, who knows! Maybe we will have dinner at the restaurant in the hotel, or maybe eat at another restaurant within walking distance. Perhaps we will just take a nice stroll on the Forks riverwalk, (here’s hoping for amazing weather)! It will also be day 2 of the Great Canadian Sleepout Fundraiser. I’d love to see what’s needed to camp out on the river trail in these not-so-fun Winnipeg temperatures. Such a creative yet crazy idea to raise funds for three great organizations!
If time permits, we’ll enjoy a post-dinner cocktail and hear some great jazz in the Current lounge. All of this BEFORE before we head up to our amazing room to enjoy each other’s company! I’m hoping we can stay awake to enjoy the room at least a little bit haha Above all, we will get to sleep beside each other without a toddler kicking us in the head or elbowing us in the mouth.
In the morning, after sleeping in, I look forward to a full breakfast via Room Service before it’s time to checkout and head back to reality. Sounds fabulous no?
I’ll be sure to review it all next week for ya, in the meantime, the countdown is ON! Stay tuned! 🙂
