Not gonna lie, I'm pretty freakin' excited about this. This is going to be the first time Keri and I have been able to go anywhere for a night, just the two of us, since 2019. Yeah, I know, it's crazy.

Obviously we have had the opportunity to do quite a bit of family vacationing this year, especially because of COVID-19. With so many of my summer weddings cancelling because of gathering size limits, we were able to take many more camping trips with our friends and kids than we had originally expected. Weird to give credit to COVID for something good happening isn't it?

Well, as much fun as we have getting away with family and friends, sometimes you just need a 24-hour reset just the two of you, right? Thankfully last Christmas, my mother got us a couple gift certificated to the Senator Inn here in Augusta. One of the certificates is for an overnight stay at the hotel (in a suite!) and the other one is for a couples massage at the Cloud 9 Spa.

And, since we're going to be guests of the hotel and spa, we get complimentary access to the hotel's pool and hot tub while we're there, too! We plan on spending the entire day just enjoying the peace and quiet and not having all our kids under foot. In the evening we're gonna head over to Marg's for a a couple signature cocktails and some Mexican grub. Okay, fine, I order the chicken tenders at Margaritas... but they're so good!

All in all it should be a great little weekend staycation and we're really looking forward to it. A special shout out and thanks to my parents for getting us the certificates to make this happen and to my mom who is coming over to watch the kids while we're away!
