Travel Lust: Romantic Getaways

October is my favorite month period. I love it even more than my own birth month (March) primarily because it seems that everything amazing happens in October. On the 27th of this month, in fact, is my 3 year wedding anniversary which I am incredibly thankful and excited about. So it dawned on me today that I should showcase a few places I’d like to travel with my husband to and have a lovely vacation.

I’ve written about sustainable and biodynamic wine before (here) and how fantastic it is because if I’m going to indulge I’d love for it to be organic. I came across the beautiful winery MacRostie Winery and Vineyards while I was checking out vineyards in Sonoma and Napa and I’m fully ready to pack a suitcase and go.

Farmstead Restaurant

Maybe it’s the preppy vibe located perfectly on the water or the fact that I’m married to a New Englander – either way I’d love to spend a few days lounging water side. And the Wequassett Resort looks like the perfect place to lay like broccoli and veg out.

Now as lovely as these places will one day be to visit I am actually looking forward to spending quiet time at home with my husband on our 3rd wedding anniversary. Sometimes the best thing for a couple are not the bells and whistles but a quiet moment of connection and love.
