English Country Style Getaway

The other day I instinctively did a quick calculation of how long Charles and I have been married, and I was surprised to find out that it's already been 9 months. In three months we'll reach our 1 year wedding anniversary! That blows my mind...I suppose as most things go, it doesn't feel like it's been that long.

Charles is eligible for vacation in September at the bank, which coincides perfectly with our anniversary. We haven't made any solid plans, but we have talked briefly about taking a small trip and getting away. Since we're "broke newlyweds" we probably won't be going very far, but it will still be nice to step away from the busyness of life for a little while.

The other day I got a Groupon email that presented five getaway deals and was immediately taken by this English country style house in British Colombia.

How adorable is that?! It looks small from the front, but you can see from the back view that it's actually quite large...

I wouldn't mind eating breakfast with this view! You certainly get what you pay for, at a regular price of C$495 (roughly US$520) per night, though the Groupon deal does bump that down to C$247 (US$260). Nothing that we can begin to afford! I really don't mind - we were quite unique in that we were able to travel around Italy and Europe together before and while we were dating. We still want to go back and visit Italy at some point...maybe for a Five Year Anniversary trip!


  1. This looks like the perfect little getaway spot, I hope you and your husband can make it there someday :) (sounds like i need to look into that Groupon thing)!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the helpful tips on the chocolate dipped ice cream bowls, I will have to test them out!
