This past December, my husband and I felt like we needed to take a break from all of the busyness of the holiday season. We were overwhelmed with work, Christmas festivities, and all of the shopping that needed to get done, but we didn’t have a lot of time to do a big trip. Because of this, I thought it would be a great time to getaway into nature and try out a Getaway cabin for a night. I am so happy that we decided to take the time out of our hectic schedules to getaway!
I recently received some snail mail from a friend and felt compelled to share it with you all. My friend Sara just started an account Instagram called @postcardpoetryclub and I could not love what she is doing there more. For $1, Sara will write you a personalized, handwritten poem on a vintage postcard and send it to you in the mail. I asked her for a travel-themed poem and this is what she came up with for me…
Last year I won Helene In Between’s $2,000 travel giveaway. I had been wanting to go on her trip to Portugal with TrovaTrip for months but had decided that I really couldn’t afford it. When I won Helene’s giveaway, I was floored! I couldn’t believe it! Never had I won so much as a bridal shower bingo game, but I had won $2,000 towards travel. I ended up using the money to go to Portugal with her. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for myself.
When Alex and I first went to London together in 2016, we decided it would be fun to get out of the city for a couple of days. I did a little research and came across some photos of the Cotswolds on Pinterest. I immediately fell in love and started to look for the perfect place to stay. Enter The Painswick Hotel. It seemed like the perfect city break and the decor looked so inviting.
